    Just found out I got 75% in my history controlled assessment. A bit disappointing as I want to get an A*. My teacher says that's a B as an A is 80% for CA but when I looked at grade boundaries for the whole gcse it's an A.

    My question is, do they lump together the scores for CAs and exams for the final grade, or do they stick with a B for the CA (presume they have to adjust the % somehow)?

    Thanks for your help!

    They will add the ums points from each part of the qualification together to get your final grade.
