Ok, so I know you have to have achieved 80+ UMS (a) at AS, but for a2, do you have to have 90% for both/all modules ( for me this is coursework and the exam)...or overall? so i could have 85 ums in coursework and 95 UMS in the exam? :confused:

No you don't :no:

You need to average at least 80% UMS over the whole A-Level and average at least 90% UMS over the A2.

You don't need to have got an A at AS. You can get one with a B, too. Even a C, but you'd need full marks at A2 (I think). But you need 180/200 overall at A2 to get the A*. So you could get full marks in coursework, drop 20 UMS in the exam and still get an A*
