If I got a B/C in my NEA coursework, would I still be able to get an A* overall?

If so, roughly what UMS would I need in Paper 1 and Paper 2 to get an A*?

First of all its not UMS. I am gonna do a rough estimation. Considering last year 66% was an A. I would say you would need minimum of 85-90 to get the A* with a B/C in the NEA. However if you get an A* in the NEA you could be safe with around 70-80 marks in each paper

I'm using Comp 2 and Comp 3 past papers, as well as the Heathcote textbook alongside the specification to revise for Paper 2. As for Paper 1, I've been self teaching a lot of the Python required as well as playing around with the preliminary material. Wbu?

Paper 2: I have notes i made using the textbook. As well as comp2/3 papers and specimen + additional questions.

Paper1: Same i have been just studying the preliminary so i am up to grips with the entire code. Hopefully all goes well. Good luck

GL to you too, I'm going to attempt the specimen papers once I've done all of the Comp2 + Comp3 papers from January 09 onwards.

How far have you progressed with your coursework btw?
