1. Although Edexcel states that to get an A*, the overall UMS should be at least 480, and the mark in C34 should be at least 180 UMS, I need some clarification.

I got an overall of 284 in my AS, does that mean that if I get 180 UMS in C34 (adding up to a total of 464), I am allowed to get 16 UMS only in my second applied unit ??

Moreover, the boundary for an A is 480 UMS overall. Does that mean that I could get a B in C34 as long as my overall is above 480 ?

An explanation would be much appreciated !

YES 480 total UMS that includes 180 in C34 = A*
YES 480 total UMS with less than 180 in C34 = A

Wow, i was so tired while writing that post and didn't acknowledge the sheer amount of mistakes and the ambiguity of it. Thanks you so much for the elaboration though !!

Definitely A* in Mathematics

For further mathematics,
u need average 90 in top 3 A2 modules,
in this case, it should be the top 3 modules in m3,m2,f2,f3
In other words, u need 83 UMS in f2 or f3.
