    Oh, sorry. I should've noticed that this is in the GCSE section

    Use the UMS grade boundaries for your exam board to calculate how many marks you need in the exam to get the A*. You will have to convert your raw mark from the coursework into UMS. You can search for the raw mark to ums converter on your exam board's website

    Don't be too upset. Make sure you smash the exam so you can get those extra ums marks to get the A*. If the exam is worth 75% then I am sure if you do very well in the exam you'll get it. Do check the UMS grade boundaries so you can see exactly where you stand.

    Hi

    You'll have to check UMS grade boundaries and you should be able to see if it's really possible. You could also ask your teacher to explain this. I got an A in my Geography coursework and I'm sitting the foundation paper as I'm quite good with things like coursework. However, luckily I'm a bit safer now and more likely to pass with a C at least.

    Good luck!
