Hi I was just wondering whether you need an average of 90% from the 2 physics exams AND the empa, or just an average of 90 from the exam modules PHYA4 and PHYA5 to get an A* in a level physics.

I'm doing AQA btw.

Thanks

You need 90 UMS across the whole of A2 including the EMPA, I missed out on an A* in biology because of the EMPA :mad:

OMG that is so sad! I hate it when that happens. Are you considering resitting the Empa for that beautiful A*?

I'm not at sixth form any more but it would have been nice to have had the opportunity to redo it even though I still got what I needed for my offer.
