    Assuming they are equally weighted @ 25% each - the more marks you get in each unit, the better.

    If you got 90/90/90/70 (%) for example, then your average would be 85%, which is only an A.

    If you get 95/95/95/75 (%) then you would average 90%, which is an A*. So it depends on what your marks are, really.

    (To find your average, add up the total and divide by 4).
