    I understand that coursework is worth 25% of your final GCSE, but how does it balance out with your grades? For example, if somebody got an A* on their exam and a C or a D on their coursework. And what if somebody got a C or a D on their exam but an A* in their coursework?

    Didn't you just answer your question with the first thing you said. Coursework are usually worth around 25%. The grade of your coursework is given a 25% weighting. The exams altogether have 75% weighting. So exams are more important than coursework, exactly 3 times more important. If someone go an A* overall in their exams, and C or D on their coursework, they'd get probably around an A. If someone got a C or D on their exam but an A* on their coursework, they'd get probably a high C, possible a B.
