    I have an A overall for AS, but for one module i got a high B,
    Does this mean i cant get an A* overall?

    Somewhere i read that i only need an A overall at AS... Other places say i need an A in all modules... Im slightly confused....so any help would be appreciated !

    The rules are the same for all 4 units A levels with AQA, CCEA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC and very simple. You need:
    1. At least 320/400 UMS overall (i.e. an A)
    2. At least 180/200 from the A2 units.
    Nothing else matters and the indicative grade you get in individual units is irrelevant - in theory you could fail an AS unit and still get an A*.
