    Judging from my AS results, all of which are worth 50% of my overall A level (I'm on CCEA, and on this board A levels are still modular and not linear)

    In History I achieved 191/200 UMS marks, which is around 96%

    In English Lit I achieved 196/200 UMS marks, which is around 98%

    In Performing Arts I achieved 162/200 UMS marks (although I may be getting some of my coursework remarked), which is around 81%

    Can anyone estimate what's the minimum result I would need to achieve in each subject in order to get an A* at A2?

    Achieve an average of 90% in all your subjects in Y13 and you'll have 3A*

    You have to get 90% average from only your A2 exams to get A*s
