    Counting that you get A* in your exams, you should be able to get an A. I did two pieces of coursework so if this is your first one, just make sure you get a higher mark in your second. To get an A* in exams, write down developed points and learn your casestudies reeaaalllyyyy well. Hope this helps?

    Depends how high the A* is, a B could drag you down to an A, if you got a high A* in the exam you may get a low A* overall depending on the grade boundaries
