    You won't be able too get an A, but you can still get a B with an A* in the exam

    it all depends on the grade boundaries that will be released before your results day!
    As you said you got a high D grade in your coursework and your coursework is 60% - so you have got 38% lets say because you mentioned its a high D and normally D grade is half % of the 100%
    so if you do get 40% in your exams which can be difficult because exams tend to be harder - but lets assume you got an A in your exams which would be 20% lets say, so if you add them up 38 + 20 = 58% that will be a high C or you can get a low B
    so grade A i think would be difficult to achieve - just try to get an A in your exam to secure your C grade or maybe you can get an A
