    Every exam board is as equally challenging as the others. The only difference is that they ask their questions in a different style and move a topic or two between two different modules as opposed to others. Most of them do not involve any coursework, not that I heard of anyway, so they are mainly exam based.

    To get an A* in OCR MEI I'd imagine is the same as other boards, accumulate at least 480 UMS across 6 modules (this gives you an A grade) and if you get at least 180/200 UMS over C3 and C4 in addition to this you will achieve an A*. Either way, shouldn't matter. Just do well and you'll walk out with a good grade.
