    Hi!

    So basically I want to know if it's possible for me to get an A at A2. I got a low-ish B for the exam and low A for my coursework. I messed up that exam but now I'm aiming for an A at A2 but was wondering if it is possible with my results right now? And how hard would it be? I'm on OCR.

    What's the total A level out of? Take 80% of the total, minus your score from that number, and what you're left with is the amount you need in A2 to get an A

    It will be out of 200 I pressume. So thats 76.5%. So if you want an A you would need no less than 85% next year to get the percentage up to 80%
    If your wondering the coursework was 80 in total and the exam 120 And your A2 carries the same amount of marks, with one being 80 and one being 120, so you just have to have a slight improvement at A2 compared with AS
    However it is defiently realistic to get an A for you, so I wouldnt give up hope, and your results were very good!
