    you were 8UMS off of a B overall, which could be something like 4 marks!

    Ah right, didn't know I was closeish. I only ask as my school has just emailed me notifying me they will automatically put my unit 3 paper in for a remark (without me paying!). Thanks for the quick reply!

    I definitely agree! I got a D overall and was the equivalent of 1 mark off a C. They couldn't find one extra mark for me and it stayed the same. I second your comment!!

    Please can someone assist me. I am wondering what the likelihood of me being able to achieve an A* in Geography is. I have just sat AS and I achieved Grade A with a UMS of 180. I got 130/140 in GEOG1, and 50/60 in GEOG2. I believe the UMS required for an A* is 360/400? Can anyone advise how likely I am to achieve it with my AS mark? What marks would I need to get GEOG3 and GEO4B? Thanks for your help.

    Also I have been preparing my detailed revision notes in a PowerPoint. I have just finished my first set of notes for the specification point, 'The global pattern: millionaire cities, mega cities and world cities.' I am going to save what I have done so far in PDF format, and if I upload it to here, would someone be able to give them a quick read through to see if they think they're sufficiently detailed? If anyone finds them useful to revise from, I can upload more...

    All the best,

    Joe

    To get an A* you need to get an average of 90% in the A2 modules, and have an A at AS, so it doesn't matter how weak or strong your A in AS is. I didn't get an A* so I wont give you tips on getting one, just thought I'd clarify how the grading works.

    Thanks for the reply (and the PM from someone else. I am having trouble getting the PM function to work, but when I do I shall respond).

    ElChapo, thanks for the confirmation. Does the UMS not directly correlate to the grade at A Level? I thought you need to achieve a total of 90% in the entire A level course to achieve an A*. I achieved exactly 90% in AS, so if I repeat this in A2 I assume that I would achieve an A*. I thought that if you achieved, say 100% in AS, you'd consequently be able to achieve less than 90% in A2, to still come out with over 90% overall (and therfore an A*) - is this not the case?

    When you say an average of 90% in the modules, is that the case? So long as my total A2 examinations combine to equal at least 90% I should be OK (meaning that one of my exams can be slightly lower, and the other slightly higher than 90%).

    Do you remember any of the questions from the world cities and tectonics structured questions? Obviously we haven't got access to the June paper yet, but I'm looking for some more past exam questions to tackle ☺ thank you! X

    Please Help,

    Does anyone remember what the questions were to this paper- especially the 40 mark questions?

    Thanks
