    I got a B in my sociology AS level and a C in Economics AS level, unfortunately I failed my English Literature...
    I'm not able to finish one of my essays in sociology A Level which is 16 marks and not confident in other essays as well...Will I be failed in the final result?
    Same as above, what is the lowest grade that I should have in my A level paper to get my final result passed?

    If you got a B at AS then you scored at least 140/200 UMS. To pass the whole A level you need to score at least 160/400 overall, so if you can manage to scrape 20/200 at A2 (less if it was a high B) you will get an E.
    Similarly, for Economics, you have at least 120/200 overall, get another 40 and you will have an E at A level.

    Which exam board are you taking? (If it's CIE it is different to the rest and I can't help you.)

    Well...It's CIE indeed...
    But does that stand out from other exam boards?
    It's AQA,am I right?

    The domestic exam boards (AQA, CCEA, Edexcel, OCR & WJEC) all have common regulations and have to comply with rules laid down by the UK government. CIE is the international exam board of Cambridge Assessment (OCR is its domestic equivalent) and is not bound by the same rules. It's a perfectly legitimate and well regarded exam board, it just doesn't have to follow the same pattern that domestic ones do.
