    Is the chem and physics new spec (Reformed A Level) if it is then you're good. Only retake maths modules. You need A this year to be eligible for an A* next year

    New spec. Your AS grade is seperate from your A2 grade. If u get a E at AS then A* at A2 then your a level grade is A*

    This is not true.
    For an A* in A-Level Mathematics you need an average of 80% over the two years (480/600 UMS) and 90 UMS average between the C3 and C4 modules.

    You could theoretically get a B in AS Mathematics (200/300 UMS) and still end up with an A or an A* at the end of A-Level provided you work hard enough and do well. (Though you would need 280/300 UMS in A2 to achieve this)

    So how does an A* in further Maths work?

    Same concept, but in Mathematics you need to average 90% between two modules (C3 and C4), whereas in Further Maths you need to average 90% between all three of your A2 modules (270/300 UMS).
