    Hello, I've had a look at my results again but I'm not sure why I got an A overall eventhough I got an A in all 3 units ?

    So what is the overall UMS for an A*

    I'm very grateful for an A though but I was just wondering ?

    Do you know what your coursework mark was? It could be that you got 'low' As for all units and coursework.
