recently I have been quite worried about my final grade for economics. A uni offer is hinged on getting 3 As, and i'm quite confident about an A in my other subjects, but less so for economics. would love to be reassured on this, but basically my school published pieces of 'evidence' that can be used for our final grade. I haven't done great over the past year - I got 80% in short topic exams and homeworks, but did worse in major assessments. in our final exams I got 60 and 70%. I'm hoping 70% would be an A but I'm not sure about grade boundaries. So can anyone give me an blunt, honest answer about how likely it is I will get an A, taking past grade boundaries into account and my performance? I was predicted a B initially but got it moved up to an A, I doubt my teachers would lower it now but quite worried anyway. Thanks

CAGs weren't awarded on grade boundaries but grade profiles ... just be patient

thanks, but i don't really understand it fully. it seems similar to what our teachers said, that you have to meet certain criteria to get the grade... but it was never clear how consistently you would have to reach this criteria, and how many pieces of work would be submitted as evidence. any idea on that? I think the exam board was eduqas if that helps. i'm pretty confident that i reached each criteria at least once in my work, but maybe not all in the same piece of work, or not in too many pieces of work either...

I can't say what your school did - each school made its own decision.
