    Because i'm really pissed off. I'm also, incredibly numb headed. My chem teacher said so during parents evening lol.

    I need an A*, and i'm trying to accept that fact i probably wont get it. Or, if i do, i'll flunk bio and chem. Putting that aside, if i got

    86 C1
    76 C2
    (RETAKE) C3, mechanics and stats.
    76 C4

    I could be wrong, but I think you need a 90% avg in C3 and C4. Given your 76 in C4, that isn't possible.

    You need to re-take both C3 and C4 to stand a chance of getting A*, as you need 180 UMS between them. You also need 158 UMS across the two modules you haven't mentioned.

    It's True, one must get 90+ in C3 and C4, where the total A2 grade must be +270 for it to be an A*

    You can't get an A* with anything less than 80% in C3 or C4, since you need a 90% average over the two (so if you do get 80% in one you need 100% in the other, and so on).

    The fact you can't work out what marks you need to get 90% is probably the underlying reason you won't get an A*.

    Sorry.
