    I got a B in my coursework, my tutor thinks its up to an A but the moderator only marked it up to a high B. I agree with my tutor because the moderator has frequently made a lot of marking errors with a lot of student's courseworks and my tutor had studied in cambridge + was head of english at Kings school so, yeah I completely agree with him!

    Anoter note:
    Before, the moderator marked my coursework's up to a low C, I complained to my school's head of english teacher because I knew it wasn't at ****ing C. But she said that she agreed with the moderator. So i decided to resend it for marking (and i didn't change anything at all) and it turns out I got a high B. It just shows that a lot of my school teachers and exam moderators dont know how to *ucking mark anything properly.

    And again I still disagree with the marking :P
    Hopefully the exam board picks up on the poor marking

    So can anyone please tell me if its possible to get an A* with a B in my coursework.

    Oh and do you know any good resources for eng lang/lit to study (exam boards: Eng lit - Edexcel, Eng lang : Cambridge

    Yeah which is why I don't watch his language videos, but his literature ones I'm pretty sure he does Edexcel but if not he does some of the poems from the anthology anyway so it doesn't hurt to take notes of his analysis (luckily for me I watched a 30 minute video on a poem which was in the exam the next day so I had all the right notes)

    No I meant if you get an A* you will get an A for sure, if you can an A you will probably get an A overall, but I don't think you'll be able to get an A* overall if you got a B in your coursework unless you get a really high A*, but you'll have to look at last years grade boundaries to make judgement

    I don't get it either. My head of engish said that the moderator marks it and gves us time before the deadline to make improvements before they finalize the grade after the deadline or something like that.

    Pretty sure that aint allowed. We weren't able to make improvements once it was marked. But we were able to draft the essay and get verbal feedback.

    Oh yeah BTW you can only get A in the coursework for IGCSE English Lang (Cambridge). So you need A on all 3 components to get A* well
