    So I'm doing maths a level in 1 year and I really want an A* and I know that I need 90% UMS in C3 and C4 to achieve this. I know it varies between years but can someone give me a guide as to how many marks out of 75 I need to get roughly 90% UMS. Thanks

    i.e you know if you are going to get an a* before you have even taken the exams

    The tables for this are accessible to the public. Check the exam boards websites.

    Work out roughly 90% of 75
    Some times it's a bit more and sometimes a bit less
