    I managed to get a B in chemistry and physics my percentages were 78 and 79 for AS level is it possible for me to get an A in A2 how much do I need to get that result.
    I'm willing to try really hard by the way

    I'd definitely say so. At my school, the standard procedure is for teachers to automatically set UCAS grades at one higher than what you got at AS (e.g. your teachers would have given you As, like mine did.) If it wasn't achievable, they wouldn't do it. Some people even manage to go up two grades (e.g. C to A). It doesn't hurt to work hard though

    My mindset for things like this is aim for around 85% not just 80% because then if you're caught out by a high grade boundary you'll have a better chance of getting A's and if you're lucky possibly even an A*
