Good news, you aren't right! On page four of this booklet it says that "in A-level, grade A* is awarded to students achieving grade A overall and 90 per cent or more of the maximum uniform mark on the aggregate of the A2 units". So for subjects that are out of 600 (like sciences) you need 480 overall and 270 in A2. That means that not only can you get an A* overall with a B in AS, if you get a B at AS and 270 UMS (90%) at A2 you are guaranteed an A*, because 90% and 70% average out to 80%, which is the boundary for an A. In fact, you can still get an A* even if you scraped a C at AS, if you get 100% at A2.(Original post by Kugelmugel)
I don't want to be right haha! If getting less than 540 means you can still get an A* that's cool!
Can I get an A* at a level if I got a B at AS?
