    I achieved an A* in my coursework so I'm wondering how many marks I will need on papers 1 and 2 for an A* overall? Also, how much % is each paper worth?

    Exam board? If you're doing WJEC then your coursework is worth 25%. Paper 1 is worth 35% and paper 2 is worth 40%.

    You can find out how many UMS points you have for your coursework here: https://www.wjecservices.co.uk/MarkToUMS/

    and work out how many more marks you need here: http://www.wjec.co.uk/exam-officers/...?language_id=1

    I'm guessing the UMS boundaries are the same for English language because they have no lit boundaries there. You need 180/200 UMS to get an A*.

    It's approximately 90% for the majority of exam boards - it does change based on the paper and how well other people do, though not by very many marks at all. If you go for 90% and miss the A* mark your coursework will make up for it to leave you at an A*.

    I use some crap method, basically this is how i do it for inspector calls,
    P- Point (any point like Eric is immature)
    E- Example (Eva and Mr Birling call him a "boy", "idler", "kid")
    T- Technique (Shows how immature he is and why he is like that, parents "dont understand")
    E- Explain ( Eric feels as if everyone makes fun of him)
    R- Readers/audience response. (This agitates Eric as he doesn't like being called a kid, therefore he forces Eva to have..)
    Then just evaluate
