    Hi all!

    How many UMS points do you need overall in Edexcel GCE (AS) to get an overall 'A' in Mathematics. I know that the total is 300 UMS (3 exams), but I'm having trouble finding out how much is needed for A.

    Thanks!

    You need to score 80% overall for an A (i.e. 240/300).

    It's the same for other subjects at AS:
    80% overall = A
    70% overall = B
    60% = C
    etc.

    80% in AS AND 90% in C3 and C4 - I think

    A* is slightly more complicated, and even more so for maths! You need to get:
    - at least 480/600 overall in all your modules; and
    - at least 180/200 overall in C3 and C4.

    The A* is a bit different. You need to score:

    80% average over the whole A-Level (i.e. score at least 480/600 overall).
    90% average over C3 and C4 (i.e. score at least 180/200 on C3 and C4).
