A* at A-levels!Watch this thread
that subject at A2 levels!
so ifu scrape a B first yr with 70% and 90% in the a2 yr youll get an a*
as 70+90 is 160 divide by 2 is average of 80 across the two yrs and you have 90 in a2
so yes if u have a B you can get an A* you could also get a C
I can't get this!I was looking for physics threshold.It is possible but for Maths,very unlikely!
I think the basic rule is that you need 80% overall in the subject, and 90% overall in A2 to get an A*.
80% Average overall (AS and A2)
90% Average on A2 units
there is a thread all about A*s and questions about it, go there. So yes it is possible to get an A* with just a B at AS level.
I read about a guy who sat A level with 80+ average across the whole a level and 90+ for A2. But he didn't get an A* because his AS average was less than 80....
It'll likely be more difficult to get an A* with a B at AS, yes, but far from impossible. You'd be surprised at how much you can improve your grade from AS to A2, especially if your individual unit/module scores were near the grade boundaries.
Of course, if you're properly dedicated to getting an A* in something in particular, retaking an AS paper or two is a good bet. Just make sure you don't put too much on your plate, as you need to be giving it your all in your A2 exams if you want the top grades.
