    I'm currently studying maths A Level, and I have a small query about the grading system.

    Say I have the following grades for the full Mathematics A Level:

    C1: 100
    C2: 100
    M1: 100

    C3; 79
    C4: 79
    M2: 79

    The AS Grade is 300, which is above the boundry for an A (240).

    To achieve full marks at A level, you require 480/600 marks, I have 537, but I do not have 240 marks in my A2 modules.

    My question is, do the A2 marks also have to be above 240?

    I ask because I can achieve the 480 marks given that I have 270 from AS Level, But if I only have 210 in my A2 level modules, I'm not sure whether i'd get an A.

    The A grade is only dependent on getting 480/600 overall, which you have done. So you have an A.

    If you're also wondering about the A*, you can only get that if you get above 180 UMS in total in C3 and C4.

    These aren't my actual A Level results, I was using them as examples of values over and under 240.

    My actual A level results were

    C1: 79
    C2: 99
    C3: 87
    C4: 77

    M1: 72
    M2: 60

    This should come to 474, but since they used M2 to boost my further maths AS, They used the S1 exam which I didn't bother revising for. (Big mistake)

    Obviously my first course of action should be to retake C1 and gain the 6 easy marks for my A, But the sum of my C3 , C4 and M2 marks wouldn't equal 240, which is where the problem lies.

    Now that I know it will be an A given my S1 exam is done right, I no longer have to worry about doing M2

    OK so the total of your C1 - C4 plus M1 is 414? So what was S1?

    The total UMS must be 480 or more to get a grade A.
