    well with edexcel you have to get an averge of 90% in C3 and C4 and the other 4 modules you do you need to get an average of 80% to get an a*, not sure how it works for other boards like aqa...hope this helps

    For maths, you need to get 180 UMS from C3 and C4 - an average of 90% in the two. The third applied module doesn't count, but you do need 80% average over the whole 6 units. I'm not sure how it works for other subjects.
