    Hi,

    I'm a 38yo mature dyslexic student who got an E grade first time around.

    I'm currently studying WJEC English Language and due to some kind of legacy loophole will be graded A* to U rather than 1 to 9.

    I understand that assignments are 40% and two paper exam is the other 2x30 = 60% of the overall mark.

    I currently have 16/20 and 32/40 in my assignments so far. I have one more assignment to complete. So I'm currently hitting exactly 80%.

    I insisted on taking the higher paper but the teacher seemed to encourage everyone to take foundation, which is what everyone else is doing.

    What kind of grade might 80% gain me? I'm I right in assuming that overall, roughly, 90% is A*, 80 is A, 70% is B and 60% is C on the higher paper.

    I am still able to swap for foundation papers.

    I would really appreciate any advice on what grade I'm maybe currently at, and would like reassuring that I'm doing the right thing taking higher

    This is stressing me, but if I'm currently at a B/A grade that would relax me loads. I got an A* in GCSE maths last year and want to achieve at least a B this year in English.

    Thanks for reading

    I don't know the answer but perhaps you need to ask your English tutor or the exam officer as they will probably be able to give you guidance. Sorry!

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have since spoke with my English teacher and with another assessment added (15/20) I'm currently just one mark off an A. I'm predicted an A overall but TBH I'd be over the moon with a B
