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.
Meh, someone got there before me. Back to the fashion board.
And it really is worth doing. Provides a brilliant safety net.
*takes notes of this info*
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.
