    Hi I was wondering if it is possible to get a B or above on an english language exam. My coursework is a C, but if I try really hard in the exam, is it possible to get a B or higher?
    Also this is my English language resit exam which is in 1 week, has anyone got any tips for me, anything that can help me. Because everything that I revised for the first exam, I have forgotten them and they do not make sense, my teacher's notes and tips didn't make sense and I forgot the tips in the exam, they flew out of my head and that is why I failed.
    So any new tips anyone can give me it will be helpful.
    I am revising as much as I can by doing past papers, but like I said I don't have much time as my exam is in 1 week.

    No. If your coursework is a C, you are limited at a C, unfortunately

    But my friend, his coursework was a C and he came out of the exam with a B.
    So why can't I get higher than a C?
    Also my teacher has been telling us that we can get higher than a C on a foundation paper even though our coursework is a C or a high C.

    You're restricted at 1 UMS below a B in Foundation.

    But my teachers and Mr. Bruff videos said that you can get a B in a foundation paper, it is possible.

    It doesn't work in the same way as Maths, because in Maths the highest you can get on foundation paper is a C. But English works differently, you can get a B in foundation paper. I remember now that my teachers said that you can get a B on foundation if you answer all questions perfectly.

    I'm pretty sure that must be false. On the grade boundaries of foundation paper there is no B.

    So why do they do this to us and get our hopes up if we will only get a C. and they lie to us by showing us examples of people getting a B on foundation. Were they actually Higher papers but wanted us to believe it is foundation??

    Teachers do often lie to get you off their back I first hand know what you mean. Could you maybe show a picture of the grade boundary if possible?

    I would but I don't have it with me, the teacher showed it to the whole class in the classroom. I am afraid I do not have it with me.
