    I have 139 UMS marks from AS History - 70 in one unit, 69 in the other.
    In order to get 320 UMS - ie the amount needed for a grade A - I need 181 UMS marks at A2.
    However: 181 is over 90% of 200.
    And as:
    80% overall = Grade A
    80% overall, but 90% at A2 = A*

    then I can get an A* if I get 181 marks, but 180 marks would give me a B???

    ??
    Is this right?

    Quote me so i see response, cheers

    Yes you can. You would need to get 180 UMS at A2 (ie 90%) which is what is needed to get an A* overall.

    140+180=320 = A* as you had 90% at A2...

    Good Luck!!
