    You need 90% or above of the UMS available at A2. With AQA for example, the ISA/EMPA is out of 60, and the two exams are 120 each. (It may be 100 and 140 for Biology but I'm not sure). So you could get away with 30 in the ISA/EMPA if you got 240 in total from both exams.

    Yes, so long as your coursework and exam paper combined average out at 90%
