Depends on too many variables to give a definitive answer
1. Which specification; how much does the coursework contribute to the final grade?
2. Moderation; how reliable are your internal moderation results? have results been moderated down in the past?
3. Exam grade boundaries; how sure are you that 75% equates to a good B grade?

My understanding is coursework for many A levels is only 20% so that you'd need a very high B (very close to A) in essays to get an A overall.
