    Okay so I got a B last year in biology unit 2 AQA with a UMS mark of 110. I'm re-sitting unit 1 to try and get an A, which should give a UMS of around 80. Does anyone know what grade I will need to get at A2 to have an overall grade of an A? I literally can't figure it out. (Also by the way providing that my course work marks good). Thanks!

    Assuming the AS units are as follows
    Unit 1 is out of 90 UMS
    Unit 2 is out of 150 UMS
    Unit 3 is out of 60 UMS

    and you would like to achieve 80 UMS in Unit 1 and have 110 in Unit 2, you would also need your coursework grade to figure out what you need next year to achieve an A
