    I am taking Health and social care and i want to at least get an B. My coursework is worth 60% and my exam 40%. If i get an A in my exam could i still get a B.

    Getting an A in the exam is actually pretty good, as you could get as low as a mid-to-low-B to still get a B overall.

    Check the UMS grade boundaries, but for a 60/40 split, that's generally true.

    Thank you very much. The only thing I'm worried about is the 60% coursework which I'm trying to at least get a C grade on.

    Yeah, having an A in the exam should be a good foothold to get (at least) a B overall.

    Good luck!
