    Hello
    I am doing OCR Computing and I am aiming for an A* in it. I have done both controlled assessments, A452 and A453. My teacher said that I have achieved a mid-A in both controlled assessments. What grade and approximate mark do I have to obtain in the test to achieve an A* overall. Thanks in advance.

    The GCSE is out of 300. The controlled assessments make up 180, a mid A would be 85%, 27 less than the max. You can only afford to lose 30 marks overall to get an A*, so you need 117/120 in the exam.
