Hey, im currently doing A-level history AQA and my coursework is apparently 20% of my total marks. I got 19/40 which isn't the best but its not terrible as i only really need a C/D as the final grade. My question is, what grade would this mark be and what are the grade boundaries for this? Also when its added on to the total mark would it be like adding just under 10% onto my final grade? e.g if i get 40% in the exam would it go up to 50% etc? Also for the word count do the bibliography, footnotes and quotes count towards it?

19/40 from what I have seen in AQA 2016 grade boundaries that's a grade E to get a D you would of needed 22/40 marks, bibliography, footnotes do not get counted for the word count but quotes you've put into your essay will be counted.

No problem, just study hard for your exams so you can pull your overall grade up! and anything is possible, who knows the grade boundaries for this year can get lower or it can get higher but lets just hope it goes down.

If you get like a high C in both units then it's possible to get an overall grade of a D or C but if you get a low D in both units then you might get an overall grade of a E or a D

1. You're looking at just under 50%, so perhaps a C, but there's no knowing for definite until the grade boundaries get released
2. I might be wrong, but I think all of your marks get added up together and as a proportion of the total marks available. Say the whole course is worth 200 marks. Your 19 would be added to paper 1 and paper 2, and worked out as a percentage of 200.
3. No, footnotes, quotes, and bibliography do not count towards your word count
