    I got a B in my english lit AS, but i was looking at my marks, and i think i only got a B because they were generous with the boundaries. I got 69/90 on one, (grade B apparently), 78/something on the texts in context (C) and 79/90 on shakespeare (A). I'm worried that when i get my certificate they'll mark me down to a C. Can they do that?

    But couldn't the marks on the little slips we get on results day theoretically change?

    i didn't do any coursework, at our evil college it's assessed entirely by exams, so does that make it less likely to change?

    They weren't generous with the boundaries at all: 69/90 is 77%, a high B; 78/120 is 65%, a middle C, and 79/90 is 88%, a high A. Overall, you got 226/300, 16 marks over the B boundary. You'll be fine.

    Exactly - any generous scaling has already been done to get from your Raw to UMS/300...
