    For Art and Design on OCR (and most other exam boards) achieveing an A* usually requires a canditate to lose a maximum 10 UMS in the 60% coursework and at most 10 UMS in the 40% exam (roughly, these vary every year). The UMS required for an A* ( or any grade) has always been substantially higher that what is required for the same grade in largely any other subject. Is this not unfair to candidates who do not gain any extra credit for a more difficult art grade than their easier subjects and vice versa?

    Same for AQA, mate. Art is such a sadistic and unneeded qualification. We only had 4 A-B last year :/
