    It is possible, but it's not going to be easy. To get an A* overall you need 90% at A2 (i.e. 270 UMS across your A2 modules) and 80% overall (i.e. 480 UMS in total). With no resits, you'd have to get 286 UMS (95%) at A2, so that's possible but clearly incredibly hard. If you manage to boost your AS grade up to a B with resits, then you only need 90% at A2 (like normal) to get an A*.

    Oooh okay Thank You so much! I'm hoping to get a C or above in my F211 retake which will give me a solid B at AS overall
