    I want to know how many marks I need in the june British history exam in order to get an A overall.

    AS results
    Russia: 77/100 B
    British:93/100 A

    A2 results
    Russia Coursework: Haven't got the results yet but assume I scraped an A grade.

    How many marks would I need in the remaining British A2 exam I have in june?

    320/400 is an A, or 480/600 - depending on how many units. You have 170 so far. You think you scraped an A, say 80/100 in your coursework. You'd therefore need 70/100 - a low B - for an A overall. That's only if your coursework and exam have the same weighting. You can easily find out the weightings by looking up the A - Level on the exam board's website.

    If I were you I'd aim for 100% in every module you do. I spent time last year thinking about how I only needed Bs and Cs in my modules to come out with all As and ended up getting a B in the subject I needed the lowest marks in (Cs) and was certain I'd get an A/A*. Giving myself this false sense of security only shot me in the foot as I did little to no work and thought I knew it all.

    tl;dr - do your best and don't worry about what marks you need, you should be aiming for the highest mark possible. Good luck.
