    You need an average of at least 80UMS across all modules, plus an average of at least 90UMS in C3 and C4

    You need 480 UMS that includes 180 UMS from C3+C4 combined
    The raw marks required for a specific UMS varies from examiner to examiner and exam to exam

    480 UMS overall for an A, and combined 180+ UMS in C3 and C4 for an A*.

    Yeah all the modules that make up your A level.

    The number of marks for 90UMS varies loads from year to year, and also depends on the exam board.

    So for example if you are doing OCR Maths you can find the UMS grade boundaries from here http://www.ocr.org.uk/i-want-to/conv...-marks-to-ums/
    Other sites for the other exam boards also exist
