42/50 is 84%
This is 84% of 60% of the module, i.e. you have attained 50.4% overall already.
Let's say an A is at 80% overall score, so you need to attain 80-50.4% in your exam, or 29.6%.
As the exam is only worth 40%, this equates to an exam score of 29.6/0.4 = 74%.
Get 74% in the exam to get an A.
But I would aim for something a bit higher (like 80-85% in the exam) to land solidly in the A. Grade boundaries sometimes vary a bit, so play it safe.

I imagine it would have it be 120 ums at least, you can google previous grade boundaries to try and figure the raw mark range you may need. But to be honest there is not much point trying to do the maths on this as it changes every year, just do ur best and hope for the best.
