What if you're doing C1 C2 C3 C4 and ace all of them
And you're also doing S1 and S2
But don't do as well on them. Get a B or maybe even a C.
Can you still get an A or even A* overall?
They account for about 30% of the overall grade so I dunno

Good grief. You are doing maths A Level.

Assume a C in one module (at worst 60 UMS). You need 480 UMS in total for the A grade. What would you need to average across the other 5 modules?

To get an A/A* you need to get 480 UMS in total (A* needing 180 between C3 and C4).

Assuming you ace C1-4 with 100s in all of them, you can technically get an A* by getting 80 UMS between S1 and S2, which is the equivalent of 2 Es at 40 UMS each, a D at 50 UMS and a U at 30 UMS etc.

Don't be rude - you know perfectly well that there is no correlation between A level maths and numeracy!

It was the description of one third as "about 30%" that tipped me over the edge.

Nice hijack. It obviously depends on how capable you are and what position you are already in. I wouldn't recommend it as a sensible strategy.

Of course you are. That website is designed for innumerate students though so a link is a bit unnecessary.

Past papers would be involved certainly. Why do you only have one week?

I got 100 UMS in S1 and 95 in S2... I'd done no revision while the rest of my exams were going on and just gunned past papers

Ah I see your point, it seemed as though he needed a bit of help. I hope I'm forgiven for my awful decision.
