    I have no clue how business works. Im in year 11 and just completed some course work that was meant to be worth 25% percent of my grade and I only got a B. I'm not sure how gcse averages work but ive been told im not able to now get an a* which is what im predicted. Can anyone confirm?

    That’s probably not entirely true, though it may make an A* harder to achieve. Is your coursework marked externally by the exam board? With ours it was, but marked by teachers first. So, we were given an indication of our likely mark and then they were sent off to have the marks checked, which resulted in some changes. If yours is the same you may find that the B could change. Also, the grade boundaries usually aren’t set until all the work is marked, so this might not be correct at all. Even if it is a B, with a really high exam mark you could probably still scrape an A*
