    There are 2 criteria to get an A*

    Overall ‘A’ for the 6 units which is 480 UMS or above out of 600


    The aggregation of the best three A2 units must be over 90% of the total UMS available for A2 units which is
    270 UMS or above out of 300 UMS available

    In short I reckon yes; I was just very honest with a teacher, told her my problem, sort of started it by posing it as - this is my predicted, this is what I want, how can I get there? She saw how hard I was willing to work and put it up (helped by my going to see her) and now all is well. Try that and good luck!

    Your teachers predicted grade? Then yes if your teacher thinks you could get 270 UMS from your A2 units.
