    I just stumbled across some random document on the OCR website today talking about recertification of previously certified results.

    I'm just wondering, having achieved an A grade and got over 90% average across modules, whether I should be recertifying my results since I am reapplying this year.

    Thanks

    Congratulations on getting that - do you know if its still possible to get 90% for your A level even if you got 240/300 for AS? (80/100 per mod.)

    540 marks gets you an average of 90% across your A-level. That means you'd have to be getting 300 marks from your A2 modules, which is 100% in each one, so realistically speaking its a big ask.

    For Maths, you just need at least 480 overall, and 90+ in C3 and C4, so actually it certainly is still possible for that person to get an A*

    Ah I see, thanks for pointing that out, I don't really know how the new grading system works.

    Anyway, I don't think most people with their final A-level grade, even those reapplying like me, will be recertifying their results; it seems something done by those who want to shuffle their modules around to maximise their overall grades.

    Anyway I'm just wondering, since i'm taking 3 modules this year in FM at A2, will the result come out as an A* if its good enough? Or will it just continue from my AS results and be certified as an A grade, since it could be a bit confusing having an A* grade among the grades that I got from the 2001 system.

    If the A2 units average 90% or more it will be an A* from June 2010.

    I have the same puzzle! I have EdExcel maths modules from Jan/May/June 2009, all over 90%, and I haven't been able to get a clear answer out of them about being able to re-certificate for A* in 2010.

    A reliable teacher at NewCollege tells me that AQA say their Mathematics students will be able to re-certificate in 2010 for A* certificate.

    In any case, I am sure Cambridge will be able to cope with me not having an A* certificate, just looking at the module scores ;-).
