# What do I need for an A overall?

In Psychology,

At AS, my overall score was 77.5% - a B.
This was 2 separate tests, one worth 40% and one worth 60%, both high Bs.

Now at A2 I have another 2 tests.
One is worth 40%, the other, 60%.

(Of course, I need 80% overall for an A.)

I believe to have got around 87% on the exam worth 40%, so what percentage do I need to get for the second exam worth 60% to get at least 80% overall for the 2 years?

Or, what do I at least need for both exams for the A overall?

Thanks, guys!

Do you know how many marks are available for each unit?

If you need 80% overall for an A, you need to get 82.5% overall for this year (assuming both years are equally weighted). Therefore, if you got 87% on 40% of the exam, you need 79.5% (I think) on the 60% exam. That's assuming that there is no UMS involved and that the 80% is a true value

I think I got 87% is on PY3, which I think was 59/80 for an A, and for PY4 it's 64/100 for an A.

So if 50% of my overall grade last year was 77.5%, what would I need for PY4?

I'm sorry this is so confusing!

YOu need at least 320 UMS for an A.

It sounds as though you scored 155UMS at AS, meaning you need 320-155=165UMS from A2. The exam worth 40% of the A2 will have a UMS of 80, 87% would be about 69UMS Meaning you need to get 165-69=96/120UMS on the final paper.
