    need to use the factor formulae for trignometry

    cos(A-B)-cos(A+B)=2sinAsinB

    cos(3x+2x) = cos3xcos2x - sin3xsin2x
    cos(3x-2x) = cos3xcos2x + sin3xsin2x

    For all (nearly) subjects and all boards, to get an A* you have to get an average of 90% on the A2 modules as well as an average of 80% over all the modules.

    For Maths it is just C3 and C4 where you have to get an average of 90%. For Further Maths you have to get an average of 90% on your best three A2 modules as well as an average of 80% overall.
