    I understand to get an A* you need an average of 80 ums at AS and 90 ums at A2 if I'm not mistaken.

    But for just an A I'm guessing you'll need an average of 80 ums across the board but why I'm unsure about is whether you have to get 80 ums average at A2 or whether high AS scores will be able to compensate for a lack in the A2s. For example if I get 175 ums total and then only a 155 at A2, would I still achieve an A* for having 320 overall?

    Cheers in advance.
