    For AS I got:
    English Language and Literature- 168/200 UMS (A)
    Spanish-138/200 UMS (C) 2 UMS off a B
    Music- 201/300 UMS (C)

    Is is possible for me to achieve at least B's overall in Spanish and Music? Maybe even A's? Or is that just unrealistic....

    To get an A in Music you need 279 UMS out of this year's possible 300, I don't do music so I'm not sure how hard it is to get close to full marks in the different modules etc, but I would've thought it would be quite hard to get this but it is still possible.
    To get a B however, you need 219 UMS this year which is quite a low B
    To get an A in Spanish you need 182 UMS out of this year's 200, which again is ptobably hard to achieve, but definitely possible.
    And to get a B in Spanish you need 142 UMS this year, which is a very low B.
    Good luck!

    Yes, it is possible. The probability is dependant on various things however.

    Yes, it's still even possible for you to get AAA. Don't listen to other people when they say you're unlikely to achieve a grade, because it's not like they know your brain, so just work as hard as you can and you'll achieve some pretty damn good grades.

    What are you talking about? As far as I understand, grades are always the same (240/300 80% A, 210/300 70% B). The only thing that changes are the raw marks in the exams which determine your UMS, but they are based on how well every candidate performs, so they won't be known until the exam has been sat.

    Actually 279/300 would get her an A*, as would the 182/200 in Spanish.

    @OP, do a few resits and you can easily still come out with AAA - lots of people here went from [email protected] to [email protected]

    If the op needs 80% average from As and A2, and she's got 68% from As - then in order to get an A overall, she needs to get 92% at A2 - this is what heartskippedabeat was saying.

    That would get them an A on their A2 modules, but not an A overall. The other poster had added to this the UMS that they lost on their AS modules that they need to make up to get the grade for the A level as a whole. Because they got a C at AS, they need slightly higher UMS this time round to make up the difference.

    If a grade wasn't possible, the exam board wouldn't put it on now would they?
