    The whole course is out of 300 UMS. You need 270 UMS for an A*
    If you 26 for both speaking then you will have 52/60. This is equal to 76 UMS
    For writing you'll have 72 UMS
    76 + 72 = 148
    270 - 148 = 122
    You will need 122 UMS from the reading and listening combined to get an A*

    So if you got 26 in both writing tasks and both speaking tasks:

    Speaking: 76UMS (A)
    Writing: 72UMS (A- just)

    To get an A* you need 270UMS which means you need 122 UMS from the listening and reading.
    To add to what luciie has written above, the max UMS is 60 on the papers, that's impossible to get an A*

    But don't worry, speaking could get moderated and we don't know the writing for certain as that's marked externally.

    Right in that case:

    Speaking: 79UMS
    Writing: 77UMS

    79+77 = 156UMS

    270-156 = 114UMS needed in exam to get A*

    Meaning you need 57UMS in each reading and listening

    To be on the safe side aim for 32/40 raw marks in listening, and 33/40 raw marks in reading.
