    No you cannot. The F Tier paper only allows you to go to a C. Which means you won't have enough UMS marks that will push your overall mark into the B/A boundaries.

    If you want an A overall, you need to sit the Higher Tier paper/

    You can defo go up to a grade B if you manage to get a C in the foundation paper because you got an A in your coursework. Just work hard and stay focused
