    Hi there,

    I'm kinda confused on how the system works with GCSE ENGLISH. For instance, If i got a Grade B in the English Coursework, but am not so certain on my exam. Say i get a High D for example, what grade will i get? Also, does the coursework really count towards much?

    Would appreciate it if someone tells me soon as, my exam is near.

    Thanks,

    Your final exam counts as 60% towards your final grade. Your controlled assessments count as 40% your total grade.
    My understanding is that if your controlled assessments average grade is higher than your final exam grade, then the overall grade would be higher than a High D. And vice versa.

    Information about weightings will all be on exam board website, to work out final grades you really need to know the exact percentage rather than just the grade though. If, for example, coursework is 40% and you got 68 with 70 for the A boundary and in the exam you got 45 with 47 for the C boundary (arbitrary numbers I have no idea what the boundaries are) then your final grade would be (0.4*68) + (0.6*45) = 54.2 which would probably be a C. But if you got a very low B and a very low D it would probably average a D. Check the exam board website.
