    How many UMS do you need in AS and A-Level to get an A*?

    At AS I obtained a C but I'm retaking all three modules (C1,C2,S1) I didn't work as hard as I should've which resulted in me getting a C.

    So my AS UMS doesn't have any affect on my A2 grade (because I'm retaking). So in general how much UMS do you need in AS and A2 in order to get an A*?

    480/600 with 180 in c3 and c4.

    At least 480 overall including at least 180 from C3 and C4. It does not matter how the UMS are spread round units - I've known someone not bother to turn up to M1 and he still got an A*.
