    I just want to confirm, do you need 90% in EVERY module you do in A2 in order to get an A* is it 90% overall in A2?

    Thanks.

    You have to have 80% or above your AS and then get 90% in A2 to get the A* so you won't be able to get it with a C in the first year.

    I'm fairly confident I will get four As at the end but I really need one A* which is going to be difficult for me. Got two more AS exams left but I'm done on friday so happy!

    Sorry I negged you and then realised it was kind of harsh, so I apologise. You don't need an A in your AS to get an A* overall, all you need is at the end of A2 more than 80% overall over AS and A2 combined and an average over 90% or over for your A2 units. This means you can get a B/C at AS and still get an A* overall. Also you don't need over 90% on every A2 module.

    Example: AS - 200UMS (which is a C at AS)
    A2 - 282UMS (100% on one A2 unit, 94% on one A2 unit, 88% on one unit)

    Equates to 482/600 UMS, with over 90% average at A2 - A*

    Thanks, for re-affirming my faith. And wow that is High, but at least I know with my one C, I can work my ASS OFF and get an A* or an A, without re-taking. So, again thanks.
