Basically, i've just finished all my exams (woo) and I am hoping for an A* in my maths A level by the end of year 13, i just did AS but i do further maths, so.. Yeah i did C1/2/3/4/M1/2/FP1 and they all went fine apart from M2 which i scored about 77%. Yeah, not A* quality, i get that. It was mainly due to not revising a certain part which then came up and just not knowing what to do (stupid me), but enough excuses!

I was wondering whether the A* works like this: Average an A over C1/2/M1/2 and then A* in C3/4 or whether the M2 grade is seperate, in other words will stong AS grades be able to kind of cancel out my bad M2 grade? Otherwise, i need to retake.

I'm, hoping for an A* either now, or after retaking my M2 exam.

Grades:
C1: ~95%
C2: ~95%
M1: ~94%
M2: ~77%

C3: ~93%
C4: ~91%

I hope so.. I mean it would be annoying to have to retake M2... but still, thanks guys.

It's only 90% across c3 and c4 and 80% overall so you should be fine.

You need at least 480 total UMS that includes 180 UMS from C3+C4
You will certainly have enough UMS for an A. Impossible to say if your C3+4 results are good enough for A* until the grade boundaries are released.
