    Came for the title, I'm now disappointed. Answering your question though, difficult, because even if you know all the topics inside and out, you still could quite easily make a stupid arithmetic mistake. That said it isn't impossible by any means, especially since you still have ages before the exam, plus I know people who have gotten full marks, so it definitely is possible.

    Not easy, silly mistakes will be the downfall of us all.

    I got 74/75 in C4 and got 73/75 in M1 and C2. Not sure what I did wrong at any point. That's the way it happens!

    And you want to know what you need in the 3 papers to get 90 overall? You're doing maths AS, calculate it

    Spoiler:

    Assuming the exams are weighted the same as the coursework and everything is worth 25% of the AS.

    0.75*x + 0.25*96.7 = 90

    and solve for x to get the mark you will need in all 3 papers.

    Nobody can tell you how many marks you need because it all depends on UMS.
