    I got 185/200 UMS for both ECON 1 and 2. Individually I got 87/100 for ECON 1 and 98/100 for ECON. Both ECON 3 and ECON 4 are equally weighted with 100 UMS each.

    What would be the minimum grade/UMS needed to secure myself an A or an A*?

    You need 90% average in your A2 units. If you get that then its 80% average over your A2 and AS. Then you can get A*. Im not sure about A

    nice, thanks. What about AQA Business Studies. In AS I got 182/200 UMS for both BUSS1 and 2. With individual UMS of 74/80 for BUSS 1 and 108/120 for BUSS 2. I believe BUSS 3 and 4 are both equal in their UMS being 100 each leaving a total UMS of 400. What UMS would I need to secure an A grade?

    An A would need 138/200 (you need a B in both)
    An A* would need 180/200
