    Okay so I got a B in my unit 1 which was 38/50 (ums) and I got an A in my unit 2 which was 31/40..Is it possible that I can still get an A* overall? Or should I just throw my dreams down the drain...
    Unit 1 was multiple choice which is definiely not my thing!!

    What was your UMS for Unit 2 out of 50?

    I done the same course and it's all out of 200 UMS.

    Basically I got 40 in Unit 1 and 45 in Unit 2 so I needed to get 95 UMS in Unit 3 which meant I could lose roughly 10 marks.

    If you tell me your UMS in Unit 2 I could happily work it out for you

    nope it IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE. For Unit 1 and Unit 2 you have a total 81 UMS and so you will need 99/100 UMS on Unit 3.

    if you really want that A* you will need to get full marks on Unit 3 which can be tough and hard going but people have done it before! Just make sure you know the facts inside out and your exam technique is perfect!

    Go through old exam papers, look at mark schemes, look at examiners reports and see what they look for, for the 10 mark, 8 mark, 6 mark questions.

    You can do it!
