    Hello,

    I have got my results and I only got a C in English Language (B in Literature) and I was wondering how far off a B I was but I can't find it out properly.

    Next to the 'English Langua Cash in (Linear) it has a C and does not say the mark equivalent it just says '4' in the End1 column also says I got '4' in the points column.

    In the lower section it says in both Higher Tier I got 38 c in both and in the Controlled assessments I got 45 b and 15 b.

    What does this mean and how many marks off a grade B was I?

    For 417102 —


    So you got 38, which means you were 4 marks off a B and 10 marks off an A (16 off an A*!).

    For 417202 —


    Same story here!

    For 417301 —


    You got 45, which means you were 3 marks off an A (9 off an A*!).

    Finally, for 417401 —



    Congratulations! I hope this helps a little bit to reduce the confusion. WJEC's site is a little bit confusing. Sorry for the delay in someone getting back to you!

    Thank you so much for the help, so just to clarify I was 8 marks total of a B overall? Are those 8 normal marks (marks like they are usually in other exams?)

    Hey,

    It's not a problem — happy to help! You were 8 UMS marks off a B overall, I've never taken a WJEC qualification except for at A-Level and ours were marked in UMS too, so I believe it's just like the other exams. However, it could be different for GCSE so I can't give a definitive answer!

    Either way, don't be too hard on yourself! You've done a good job. High fives all round!
