    yes!

    edit: actually you need 80% overall in AS and A2. so e.g. you can get a bit <80% at AS and >90% at A2 to get that A*.

    Can't comment on the maths one, but for the first one, no. You need 80% minimum overall between AS and A2, with 90% across A2 modules. In other words, you can get 60% at AS, 100% at A2, and that's 80% overall and >90% at A2, so A*. Unlikely, but possible, so what you get at AS isn't all that important regarding A* at A2.

    EDIT: The above edit fixed that first.
