Well basically my school applied for this because I couldn't focus fully on revision as my mom was seriously ill and I had to look after her and you get brother. The exam board say they award 1-5 percent to the raw mark but my question is that since my target grade is AAB but I think I have done better does that mean it will still be applied e.g if I get high A and that's my target grade, will the exam board give me extra marks so i get a star whicg is not my tarhet grade .. because i really wnat it as ive done so mich work this year

Given your circumstances I would assume you'd get 3% of the raw mark added to your grade. The exam boards have no knowledge of your predicted grades - there is no cap on giving you your special consideration unless you already had full marks so there is the possibility that you could get A*s

Hi so how many marks would that be? For example if the paper was out of 100... how many marks would you get?
