1. I am just curious if anyone knows just how the grades get calculated for A2?

I know it is taken from your AS grade and your A2 together but is it an average of the two years or is it based on how many points you get, as in a number so for example 200/200 is an A*, 180/200 is an A etc?
2. 80 UMS = A, 70 = B, 60 = C.

80 overall with 90 UMS in A2 = A*

Ah okay, i think I get it a bit more but I always get a bit confused with UMS marks though, is it just the raw mark after it's been converted? (sorry if that sounds dumb- haha)
6. Hey - I was just wondering, do you think I could still get a B overall in my A Level if I got a B and a C at AS and I think i'll be getting a D and an A at A2?
