    Hi everyone. I am an A2 student. Recently I gave an exam of economics in AS level and scored an A grade in it but in my components it was an A in paper 1 and B in paper 2. I'm so scared now that how will I be able to get an a* in a level economics? And will I be able to get it?

    Sure, if it averaged out to an A that means paper 1 must've been pretty high, focus on paper 2 and remember you'll build more on macro in unit 4 so not to worry. Just find your weakness and work hard it's entirely possible, micro does tend to be easier than macro to most

    The conditions for an A* aren't the same as in GCSE. At GCSE:
    A* = 90% UMS
    A = 80% UMS
    etc.

    At A-level, the conditions are:
    A* = 80% UMS overall, and 90% UMS in your A2 modules
    A = 80% UMS overall
    B = 70% UMS overall
    etc.

    This means that you can get 70% UMS at AS, and 90% UMS at A2, and you'll average 80% UMS overall and 90% in your A2 modules, earning you an A*. I hope that's clear enough for you
