Imagine I get full marks on the AS... what would be the least percentage or number of marks needed to get an A in the overall A-level?

Also, what is the number of marks needed for an A? How many marks are available?

This is Edexcel by the way.

300/300 at AS means you have 300/600 before taking any A2 exams. You need 480 for an A overall, so thats 180/300 in the A2 year, an average of 60 per module.

You need 480/600 to get an A at A level.

So, 240/300 to get an A at AS level.

So if you get 300 (full marks) at AS level you would need... 180 marks at A level to get an A overall. 180 is, incidentally, exactly a C.

Lol, you make it sound as though people choose not to do well at AS.

These numbers of marks and marks needed for an A, are they the same for English Lit (again, Edexcel)?

I'll be taking these two A-levels in the course of a year, starting in a week.

ums are standardised across the board, and across subjects.

A2
A=480/600
B=420/600
C=380/600
D=300/600
E= 240/600

AS
A=240/300
B=210/300
C=180/300
D=150/300
E=120/300
