    So I just want to double check something about the A* requirements after A2.

    In my AS exams, I comfortably achieved an A grade, and will be aiming for an A* at the end of this year. However, in one of my AS exams, I got under 80 UMS (complacency prevented revision). I just want to know, as long as I still average over 80%, and get over 90% in both C3 and C4, will I get an A* despite one of my six exams being 78 UMS?

    My exam board is OCR in the unlikely event that that affects this.

    You don't need to get over 90% in both C3 and C4, just a total of at least 180 between the two.
