    If you got a high E in the 60% exam but got a high A in the exam that's worth 40% what is your final grade likely to come out to?

    Hmm, actually sorry I got it wrong, if you get borderline E and A then a high D. But if it's a high E and A then a high C. However, this is dependent on grade boundaries. Is this AS or A2?

    I'd say a C only because the high E is in the 60& exam!

    Probably a B in a best case scenario, but most likely a C

    I'm afraid a B is unlikely because OP would need at least an A* (90%+) in the exam worth 40% even then unlikely, unless grade boundaries are low enough.

    What if I get a middle D though in the 60% exam and a high A in the 40%? Could I get a low B then?? This is AS level history so it's impossible to get an A*

    Certainly. Good luck
