    Just wondering.....

    How much of this years grade is coursework?

    Also, if for AS I got a C which is 80 points... but obviously as its only AS its 40 points because its halved...... well 40 points at A Level is an E. Does that mean I already have an E and can't get lower than that no matter what i get for this 2nd year of A Levels?

    dont know about the coursework, but the grade you need to look at for your A level current grade would be 40/600...i dont think thats an E ...mind you are you averaging your C to 80 points per module? If you current -total- points equal E in whatever/600 then yes, you've already got an E as long as you complete the course

    oh right.. i thought like at A level

    A-120
    B-100
    C-80
    D-60
    E-40

    But to get your AS grade.. you halve the A grade..so for AS if I got a C..thats 80 points.. but half is 40 points... is that not already an E at overall A Level or is that just completely the wrong way to calculate it?

    The A2 Project you do (Unit 6 Coursework) is worth 40% of the A2 alone and 20% of the total A-Level.

    okay. your 3 AS modules maximum UMS marks will add up to 300.

    AS: max = 300
    A = 240
    B = 210
    C = 180
    D = 150
    E = 120

    For A Level:
    Max = 600
    A = 480
    B = 420
    C = 360
    D = 300
    E = 240

    so if you definately got a C for AS, you got at least 180 marks after standardisation. You need between 30 and 60 (standardised) marks from -between- your 3 A level modules, to get an E.
