    Likely yes, but it depends on your UMS marks so it could still be a B overall.

    Yes but it depends on the UMS Points. You need 320 in total. May i ask what mark you got in the ISA? This will make it easier to calculate. If you edged a B you would gain 70 UMS points. That means you need 250 to get an A so you would need two mid A grades- 85 UMS each and 1 edging A grade.

    No sorry, definitely an A grade only. You should have done better, better luck next time (Assuming you are retaking because an A is embarrassing)

    I got 46 originally but my teacher reduced it to 44 as it was being sent to examiners for marking.
    in unit 1 I probably got 46 in unit 2 39 or 40 and 43 or 44 in unit 3

    Unfortunately you dont have a chance then. You need 360 for an A*. You got 90 UMS on the ISA .so need 270 in the other three which is A*s in each paper.

    Once again it depends on how secure your grades were and how many marks you got on the ISA.

    Well thats 78 UMS so you would need 242 from your other three to get an A. So as long as you got got secure A grades then you will be fine.
