English lit coursework

Is it possible to retake your a level coursework but not the whole exam? I submitted my English lit coursework months ago and have massively improved my writing skills since then, and reading it back I think it sounds awful. I don’t want this to drag my entire grade down since I really need to get an A, but I also don’t want to have to retake the entire exams if it drags me down to a B. I can’t find anything about this online, so any advice would be really helpful. Thank you!! :smile:

Hi, unfortunately I don't think you can retake coursework without redoing the whole exam, as the coursework makes up 20% of the grade you will get with the essays sat in exams combined. Do you know your marks for coursework yet? If you're working at a strong A grade, if your coursework is sat at a B I doubt it will drag it down that much
