    I have done my As, in which I got an A. The thing bout CIE is that they don't give you marks and leave you wondering how much of an A you need for your A2. So...does anyone know the minimum requirements for an A in A2 Physics for the respective 3 components or altogether? (eg. 75% above is safely an A and stuff) Thanks!

    For all of the exam boards you need to get 80% of the UMS to get an A. It all depends on how the raw marks are converted to UMS... difficulty of the paper etc.

    And A Level French, History, English, Chemistry, Music Technology.... etc.

    All A Levels have the same boundaries in UMS.

    A: 80% (480)
    B: 70% (420) etc.
