    Okay I'm doing OCR biology A for 2015 qualification which appears to be modular.

    How do I get an A*. Is it 80% UMS in AS modules and 90% in A2 modules?

    So it's like this as far as I'm aware... Basically, the system is gonna compare everyone's marks. The top 10% of people will get an A* so that the system is similar to the last one. Also, I don't think there will be any UMS marks. Also, AS grades don't count towards your final grade, though they are still important for predicted grades and Unis will look at them. So basically only A2 marks count. It's different for maths though; in maths you need average 80 in AS modules and 90 in A2 modules.
