# Confused about how to get an A* (OCR B) watch

1. Okay so to get an A* overall you need:
80% or above average across As
and
90% or above average across A2

This is correct yeah??

I've recently looked into this myself and the way I interpret what I've read is that you need 80% across As AND A2 and then 90% across just A2. So you could basically get 70% across As and then if you got 90% across A2 you would still get an A*

Correct.

I just did the AS in OCR B Physics too. Your post is correct

What grade did you get at AS?

Wow well done! i got a B but I'm going for an A next year but have to resit the AS modules. You think that's doable?

And i assume from this post, you're going for the A*?

Oh well done! yeah you can get an A for sure, even if you do not resit. It will be more of a challenge but still very doable.

And yeah I'm going for that A*

Yes, it is doable. I don't think the step up from AS to A2 is particularly big in OCR B (at least not compared to other subjects).
