    So 480 UMS is an A* right?
    Maths
    480-180 = 300 UMS
    300/4 3 AS Modules + 1 A2 Module
    75UMS each paper about a B

    Further Maths
    480-270 = 210UMS
    210/3 AS Modules
    70 UMS each paper about a B

    Is this Correct

    im too high to know what the f*ck you did there.

    assuming B is 70%, A* is 90% and AS/A2 counts towards 50% of your grade:

    (0.7 + z) / 2 = 0.9
    z = 1.1

    so you need a 110% average in A2 to get an A*. good luck brother.

    I thought its 480/600 UMS for an A*
    However you have to achieve 180 or 270 in the A2 module for maths and further maths

    oh i have no idea. 480/600 is 80%; when i did my a-levels that was the boundary for an A (there was no A* but i just assumed this would be the next 10% up).

    it seems that you may only need a 90% average brother.
