    Basically, I had taken my coursework for OCR geography last year and I found out today it was at a C. Unfortunately I was one mark off a B, and I have no idea how, is there anything I can do about this grade since I thought it was higher? Also, with two A*s in the exams (75%), could I still get an A*?

    Depending on how high the A*s are you might, an annoyingly high A is probably more likely though. Also, seeing as you're close to a B it might be moderated up by the exam board which means you will do even better! Good luck!

    Do you think it would be possible to get an A*? Cheers?

    Possible, just make sure you try your very best in the papers! Hopefully the grade boundaries will be realtively low like they sometimes are. Good luck!

    which exam board btw?

    Well I don't know what grade boundaries are typically like cos I do a different board, but that looks good enough definitely for an A unless your grade boundaries are weirdly high! Check last year's grade boundaries!

    Thank you ill check 😄 i was hoping for an A* this year, i hope my coursework bumps up higher by the examiner because i think my teacher was very harsh when marking. I panicked in sdme and im feeling really bad about it 😞 but ill be grateful with an A this year after all, thank you!

    I got 47/60 for my coursework which was a high B and I think I got an A* in my SDME Paper aswell as the Key Skills one. My teacher said that I'd have to be looking to achieve at least 90% in both exams for an A* so it may be difficult to get an A* with a C in the coursework. Not sure if he's right though.
