    Does anyone know what UMS I need to get an A in edexcel A level Maths?
    I've just done AS and got 90% UMS, surely this means i don't need that high UMS in A2?
    Thanks

    aim for A* dont settle for second place,
    true but sometimes it puts a lot of pressure.

    So aim for A work hard and end up with A*?

    AS is half the marks.
    So you need 70% at A2 to get an A

    You can easily calculate what UMS marks you need for an A. For edexcel, if you have 90%, which i'm equating to 270/300 UMS, then for an A at A2 you need 480 UMS out of 600. So that means for A2 you only need 210 UMS over your 2 papers, which is easy.

    480 UMS for an A. For an A* you need 480 UMS but a total of 180 ums out of the 300 UMS in A2 must be from C3 and C4.
