    In my English language coursework I have got 65/80. Which is either an A or a very high B. If i get an A for the exam which is 60% what grade aould i end up with?

    For lit I got a grade A which is 33 marks. If I get a grade C for the exam what could I end up with?

    It all depends on the grade boundaries for the exam. If you get an A in the exam you're probably gonna get an A/B overall, depends if it's a high A or low A. As for lit, well done on the A !! Probably A/B/C, all depends on the marks

    As said above you need to know the boundaries and where you fall within them to determine your result.

    If you get a mid to high A in the exam, you'll end up with an A. Just make sure you absolutely blitz that paper and you'll definitely get an A, possibly an A*?

    For lit well it depends how much the coursework is worth. Mine's 25% so i can still get an A pretty easily but lit exams are hard so that's the irony. I guess if you got a C you'll get a C over all, maybe a B.
