1. Hey...
Wanted to know for WJEC LT4 for the A* Boundary do you need 90% in lt3 and lt4 or can you get say 100% in lt3 thus leaving you needing 80% in the lt4 exam?

Average of 90% UMS at A2 (so 180 UMS) and 320 UMS overall across the whole A Level

Thankyou!

Ahh okay.. I was confused as my teacher said i needed 90ums in both :/ so its defo 90 in A2 as a whole? So with the above example.. If i had 100ums LT3.. All i needed is 80 in LT4?

You're teacher is wrong yeah!

Yepp if you got those UMS you'd get an A*. Its the same across all subjects except Maths!
6. I get it.. I was confused.. LT4's not out of 100 ums.. its out of 80 whereas LT4 is out of 120..

So what I actually need for A* is 109/120 in LT4
Or 96/120 if i get 100 ums on lt3?

Does this work.. or not, as LT4 is worth more than LT4

LT3 must be out of 80. So if you get 80 UMS (full UMS) in LT3 then you would need 100/120 in LT4 for the A*. As thats 80+100 = 180/200 = average 90% UMS in the A2 modules.
