# What do I need to get an A* in Further-Maths? watch

1. I got an A in AS Furthermaths: FP1[A], S2[B], S1[A].
In A2, I'm doing FP2, M2, and M3. Do I need to get three A*s to get an A* overall?
2. You need 90% average UMS over three of your A2 modules and 80% average UMS over all of your FM modules (AS and A2).

You need at least 480 UMS overall and at least 270 UMS from the best 3 A2 units that go in FM (that's any unit end in a 2 or more, so S2 could count, though with a B its unlilkely).

You mean best 3 A2 units there.

Sorry - my typo, corrected now. Thanks for pointing it out.
6. So basically I need to average 90% across FP2, M2 and M3? Thanks for your replies by the way!
7. I think someone should put a sticky in the maths room for these questions on A*

It's the average. You could get 94 in M2 and 86 in M3 and on aggregate that means you only need 90% UMS on one more FM A2 module.
