How far from an A*? Watch

1. I achieved an A with 535/600UMS. I was just wondering if anybody knows how many raw marks I am away from an A* so I can check if it is worth getting remarked?
2. If you're speaking of A level maths, then you have already surpassed the overall UMS required for an A* (480) but it seems like you didn't get 180/200 from C3 and C4, if you could say your UMS for those two exams?

Depends what your results were in A2 exams. You need 270 ums from a2 (except maths)

4. Can you say what you got in each exam?
5. The critical think is how many UMS you got in A2. You need at least 270 for an A* (or at least 180 from C3 & C4 for Maths).

As far as raw marks go, you'd have to supply exactly what subject, exam board and spec you studied, and your UMS in each A2 unit, before anyone could answer.
6. You need two things for an A* in maths

- 480/600 overall UMS

- 180/200 UMS for C3+C4

So basically all you need to have a look at is how close you were with your C3/C4
