    I'm doing my maths A level this year and I've been receiving conflicting information as to what qualifies one for an A* at A2. Please could someone just clarify what results I need to obtain this year given I'm doing C1, C2, C3, C4, M1 & S1

    You need an average of 80 across all modules, but also need an average of 90 in c3 and c4... So if you got 80 in c1,2 s1 m1 and 90 in c3 and c4 that's an a*

    An average of 80% across the A Level, including an average of 90% in C3 and C4 (meaning 89 in C3 and 91 in C4 or 85 in C3 and 95 in C4 or whatever), you just need it to total to 80%, so 480/600, therefore being able to score an average of 75 in C1-2 and your two applied modules. And ofc the higher you get in C3/C4, the lower you need in the others.

    Corrections, it's not true, I forgot about the 80% rule there. You just need it to total to 80%, so 480/600, therefore being able to score an average of 75 in C1-2 and your two applied modules. And ofc the higher you get in C3/C4, the lower you need in the others.
