    1. When is the deadline for receiving copies of exam papers from Edexcel?
    2. When is the re-mark deadline for Edexcel?
    3. What are the requirements for an A in A-Levels? Is it 480 UMS overall, or do you have to maintain 80% - like A* - across the A2 Units?
    4. If a Uni offers i.e. 3 As at GCE Level. I assume that's the whole A-Level, as opposed to A2?

    Thank you lol.

    Sorry, as in remarking papers from Jan 2011.

    Plus, is that 80% of whole UMS - 480, or 80% across A2 Units (240) + achieving 480/600 overall.

    1. 1/4/11 (priority copies for enquiry purposes) 13/4/11 (non-priority for teaching/learning purposes)
    2. 12/4/11
    3. 480/600 UMS or 320/400 UMS overall AS+A2 (depends on subject)
    4. a typical AAA offer means 3 full A levels each with an overall A grade. Some offers for very competitive courses at top Unis are more specific about levels of achievement (e.g. without resits, with 80%+ in every unit, etc)
