    My exam board is AQA. I got an A* on my CA which I believe has gained me 90 UMS marks. I'm sure that my teacher told me I would need another 270 UMS marks to get an A* overall (because 360/400 is an A*, right?) She'd said that an A* in each of the units gets you 90 UMS marks; does that mean I have to get an A* on B1, B2 and B3? I really don't think I've gotten the A* on B1 and I really hope that won't mean that I can no longer achieve an A* overall because I've messed up on one paper.

    it does not matter if you do not get A* for the b1 exam, because you may get a high A* for b2 and a solid A* for b3, so make sure you don't get all negative and actually focus on b2 and b3 to make sure u get solid a*s in them, u could get 85 percent for b1, 95 percent for b2 and 90 percent for b3 and that will give u a* overall, so u do not need a* in all of em
