    Yo if anyone can explain how the A* grade works in biology that would be great . I know you need an A grade overall but in A2 do you need an A* grade in every module?
    My teacher ****ed me over and has given me a B grade in the coursework which I really dont deserve. Does that now mean I cannot get an A* in biology or is it possible to regain the marks ive lost in the june exams?

    Cheers

    It's the same as any other domestic A level (apart from Maths). 80% overall and 90% at A2. So you need at least 480 UMS overall and at least 270/300 from the A2 units. As the coursework is only out of 60 it is still possible for you to get an A*.
