    I am coming to the end of my second year of A Level art with the exam in 3 weeks time. Both AS and A2 are individually weighted as 60% coursework, 40% exam.
    For AS I got:
    A for coursework (113/120 UMS), B for exam (58/80 UMS)
    For A2 I currently have:
    A* for coursework (unsure of exact UMS)

    Could anyone tell me roughly what grade I need in this last exam for me please? Could a B still allow me to attain an A grade overall at A Level?
    Any help appreciated!!

    For an A overall you need at least 320/400. If you got 171 at AS, and 108 (the lowest A* for the A2 coursework) that means you need 320-171-108= 41 in the exam for an A overall. 41/80 is a low D.

    Wow, really? So I can afford to get a low D? Thanks!
