    Hi guys, how did you all guys do?
    I got my AL results today and I did pretty great in both AS Maths and Biology.
    I, however, got a really annoying mark in my Biology A2 Unit 4. I got an A* off 1 mark. I just needed 1 teeny raw mark to get an A*. I want to scream, it's so frustrating. So, I have 2 questions:
    1. If I want an overall A* in Biology A-Level, is it necessary to get an A* in each individual unit. as in (U4=108 a*, U5=108 a*, U6=54 a*) or could it be like (U4=107a, U5=109 a*, U6=54 a*) they both add up to the same total but will one give me an A* and the other an A?

    2. Also, Should I go for a recheck? Do yo think i'll get this single raw mark if I go for a recheck?

    Thank you guys in advance. I hope you had great results.
