    Sorry, this might be a weird question.

    If you get an A in AS French...

    Can this save you in any way from flunking A2? :p:

    I just mean... Um, how much weighting does it actually make up? I know it's 50%. I guess I'm just wondering whether anyone was saved by a flukey A at AS, despite failing at A2. Anyone?

    I don't see why you can't work it out yourself?

    If you get full marks at AS its 50% - if you then go on and get 0% at A2 you have 50% overall (a D I think?)

    the lowest you culd get in A2 to get an A is 60% if you got 100% at AS...

    but surely if you were capable of getting an A or 100% ums you would manage to get an overall A as well so don't worry about it.

    If you get full marks at AS, and 60% at A2.

    That would be the full 50% achieved at AS (100% of AS marks) and 30% at A2 (60% of A2 marks).

    This would lead to an 80% average. Let's assume an A is 80%.

    This mean that you can only get 60% at A2 and still get an A overall.
