    If I got 280/300 UMS at AS Level does that mean I only need to get 67% in my two A2 units for an A?

    You'll need 480 / 600 for an A. So over the next three modules you'll need 200 marks, which is, as you say, about 67% average in each.

    Did you mean to say two A2 units?

    Yeh, I know... but if their score at AS was out of a total of 300, then that would imply they're doing a course that has three modules each year...

    No, modules still add up to 600, it's just that four unit courses tend to have higher scoring modules (when I did critical thinking AS, that was one module of 120 and one of 180)

    Sorry, my mistake then... the ones I do out of 300 all have three exams worth 100 each, and the ones I do out of 200 all have two modules with 100, and I've never come across any different. My apologies!
