    I'm doing it at the moment, and I'm predicted an A, but up until now I thought it counted as half an AS and the max grade you could get is A. However, someone else on TSR said that it counted as half an A2, and an A* is possible. Who's right? It takes a year to do at my school, and I'm doing 4 AS levels + the EPQ at the moment. Thanks.

    The person on tsr is right, you can get an A* and it's equivalent to an AS in in terms of ucas points. MIGHT be different for other exam boards though, I know for definite that that's true for Aqa
