    Will you need 90 UMS in all the exams?

    It depends on what subject you are sitting. I know that for Maths AQA you need at least 90 UMS in the core units and at least 80% overall. As long as the optional units bring the total above 80% you should get an A*. For other subjects you need 90/100 UMS in every exam in the A2 year and at least 80% overall as far as I am aware.

    Hahah we know what he meant but he needs to phrase his title better and just a quick look anywhere to see that he needs 90 UMS (normally)

    I was wondering about AS Physics because it's reformed so the AS exam doesn't count towards the full A level. There are 3 exams I think one AS, one A2 and one with AS and A2 content

    With linear A levels there is no UMS.

    You will need to do well enough on the 3 A level units. UMS does not apply to linear qualifications so there is no easy answer as to what mark you will need to achieve.
