    For OCR MEI Maths, if you take an A2 module and get 90/100 or above, does that mean you have an A* in that module?

    Or is the maximum grade for a module an A, no matter the exam board?

    I'm a bit confused, since my results sheet has only an 'a' printed on it, but the OCR website may suggest otherwise. I want to be sure I'm entering the correct info on my UCAS form.

    Many thanks.

    Pretty sure 90/100 UMS is always an A* regardless of the exam board. The module must be A2 though otherwise the max is indeed an A.

    An A* grade can only be awarded at the qualification level, no A level examiner awards A* grades at unit level.

    (they will often publish the 90% grade boundary but this is just for information)

    I looked at my grades on the results paper and C3 with 100UMS is A when I always saw it as an A* for some reason... huh... damn grade boundaries misled my brain.
