Hi, I sat the 2018 ICT written exam, Unit 1 - Living in the Digital World or something like that. I got an A* in my coursework. I was wondering what would happen if I got a C in the exam but an A* in coursework. What would my overall grade be? Also for a B in exam too, would be fantastic.
I believe the exam is 40% and the coursework is 60%. But double check if you want.

Thanks .

Assuming the course is 60% coursework and 40% exam you would be closer to an A grade than a B grade if you got A* in coursework and C in the exam. This is because the coursework is worth more and pulls the final grade more towards itself.
If you got a B in the exam you would be more likely to have an A. It depends on your actual marks rather than your grade so you will have to wait and see as you may be at the top or bottom of a grade in either coursework or exam so it will pull the final grade differently. :bebored:

I think for my coursework, I got the exact minimum for a A*, so I literally scraped the A* grade, so yeah....

Nice! I believe the minimum marks for an A* was 83 or 84 marks and I got exactly 83 or 84, so I'm at the bottom of the A* boundary, closer to a A.
