    I'm sure this question gets asked a lot, but I'm getting all different sorts of answers on requirements for an A* grade. I currently have
    C1 83 UMS
    C2 85 UMS
    S1 83 UMS
    This year I'm doing C3 C4 (obviously) and M1.

    What will I need in these modules to get an A* overall.

    Thank you!

    You need an average of 90 UMS across C3 and C4, and at least 480 UMS total sum in all modules combined.

    Just to clarify, this means you need:

    C3 and C4: 180+/200.

    And assuming you get exactly 180, that means you need 49 in your M1 and you'll scrape the A*.

    It's 480 total ums for every old specification uk A level in every subject from every examiner.
    CIE A levels have different rules and new specification A levels won't have ums but will have unique grade boundaries set for each exam series. Maybe he's confused with one of those.
