(i don't know if this matters but my exam board is aqa)
so i had my first exam (c1) on Wednesday and i messed up REALLY badly so i think i'll get around a high B on the exam (i usually get between 95-100% -- not bragging its just maths is the only thing i actually understand because i enjoy it, but that exam was... horrific, to say the least).
anyway, i know theres a lot of dispute about how you can get an A* in maths a level and so i'm still unsure how it works.. say, if i get an A on my next two papers (c2, d1) will it still be possible to get an A* overall next year? its just, the uni course i want to take specifies it's looking for A* in preferably maths (since thats what i'll be studying) and i don't know if i should just start exploring other options now or whether i still have hope (granted i do well on the next two papers and well next year).
thanks for any help in advance :-)

Well, I am not sure about aqa, but for edexcel I got an B in AS 237 UMS but ended up with an A* after year 2 527 UMS, I'm pretty sure you just need to smash the a2 modules and need 80 percent from all modules added together and 90 percent in a2, so get as high as possible in c2 and d1 to get that a in as and work hard next year to get that A*

You need an average of 80 over all your modules, and an average of 90 in C3 and C4.
As long as you work to bring up your AS average to 80, you'll be fine.
