EDEXCEL GCSE Science Overall Grade watch

    • Thread Starter


    I was just wondering when you get your overall grade on Science does Controlled Assessment play a big part? If you didn't get an A* in the CA will it put the whole EDEXCEL GCSE Science Grade down?, by how many UMS.

    Thank you

    Can't tell you exact UMS details but from when I did it, if the coursework was an A/A* and you did crap in the exams it didnt do much to help bring the grade up but if you aced the exams but did crap in the coursework it brought it down significantly- that was what me and my class mates saw anyway ( I personally got A*'s in them all). I think it's just safest to assume it will bring the whole grade down and make sure you get as high as possible
    Hope that helps
