    I got my raw mark back for my chemistry coursework and frankly I'm shocked...

    What let me down was me only getting half marks in a particular section and I was Wondering if there would be a possibility of trying to retake it somehow before it becomes set in stone and i miss out on an A*? any help would be great thank you

    Ask your teacher ASAP. As there are 3 tasks of each type available each year, re-taking shouldn't be a problem (at least, it certainly isn't at my centre). You will need to be quick though as the submission deadline is approaching.

    I've done it but it is not allowed to share the details online. You really don't need to cheat on these, the questions are fairly straightforward and your teacher should be able to provide some relevant practice material that is similar to the actual task.

    If your school says you can't retake it, there isn't really anything you can do about it- worrying isn't going to change your result! Focus on the exams instead, there may be a chance that you do well enough in those to get an A* overall. (Although this does depend on what you got for the coursework, and what percentage of the overall grade it is).

    need to find around 12 ums elsewhere which is about 9 marks over an A* on 2 papers (equivalent to maxing out one paper and dropping 4 or 5 on another :/ hopefully i somehow make it through!

    Really sorry to hear this especially since it's only one task holding you back Perhaps you might be able to get somewhere by explaining that the majority of people entering this unit will re-sit at least one of the tasks (even if they scored highly the first time) because of the sky-high grade boundaries.
