    Its overall. Specific modules only matter if you want an A*.

    For A* in fm do you have to average 90% in your 3 A2s or do the specific modules matter here?

    Well the only condition is that the modules are A2 modules and not AS. So it can't be any of the 1's. They average the 3 best A2 modules. Assuming that the overall UMS marks exceed 480, if the A2 modules average to 90%, then you get an A*.

    I was just guessing from the information given. I assume that the hypothesis involved something about discrete uniform, which would be wrong.
