    I have asked my teachers this question, no one knows.

    Does anyone know how you get an A* for reformed A-levels? Since you have to sit all the papers in one go, and the AS papers are meant to carry some of its A2 skills needed.

    Specifically, AQA Economics, but just generally.

    You will sit 3 papers at the end of year 13, and if you do AS, then that wont count as those 3 papers will include all of the material.

    And from what I know, a senior examiner with set the grade boundary for A* as there are no UMS

    Yeah, I know that - but is that for all three papers?

    In the past, only the A2 papers would count for an A*, so long as you get an A overall.

    But now do you need A* for all three papers? Or just the last? How does it work?
