I thought that the AS grade accounts for 50% or more to the final grade??

I just scraped a D in further maths last year but got a solid B this year

Art is a reformed subject (along with Biology, Business, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, History, Physics, Psychology and Sociology) and starting with this Summer, the AS result no long contributes to the A level grade. Other subjects are changing to this system over the next 2 years.

You got a b overall?
7. Yeah, your overall UMS has to add up to a C grade. Take the UMS for the grade you want, minus your AS level UMS and the remaining number is the UMS is the number you need.

The OP was asking about Art which is one of the reformed subjects. It does not have UMS and the AS grade does not contribute to the A level.

Oh… then why are they asking? It's a simple process of working hard and building on what they've learnt this year… you can go from a U to an A in one year unless you did an old a level but I know people who've got a U's and E's at AS, resat them with the A2 and gone up to B's and A's.
