    Course Work A Alex F

    With Course Work only less then 1 week away, I posted notes on all 30 mandatory experiments,

    This is 10 per cent of the overall grade and if All are done correctly, then it's a guaranteed 10 per cent.

      I can send them via email to anyone who wants them until the notes go online

      Only an absolutely tiny minority of experiment books are actually checked every year, the majority of people are just given 1/3 % for each experiment they tick off to say that they have done, in the Coursework B journal. So realistically, spending the next week writing up thirty experiments is almost definitely going to have been an absolute waste of time, time that could have better been spent studying.

      How Coursework A is actually marked according to the marking schemes:

      Count the number of mandatory biology/chemistry/physics investigations/experiments claimed on page 5/6/7 of the Coursework booklet and enter it in the Coursework A grid on the cover page.

      Total the number of investigations/experiments claimed and award 2 marks per investigation/experiment to an amount not exceeding maximum 60 marks.

      danm15 does that mean that nobody gets full marks then even if they've completed all of the coursework investigations/experiments?

      No, it means anyone who ticks the boxes in the coursework B journal to say they've done all 30 experiments gets full marks for them, regardless of how many they have done, or to what standard, if any
