I have sat my AS exams, and am thinking about what I may have got, now unit 1 is 40%, unit 2 is 30% and unit 3 30%, but I'm not sure about the grading system. now i have been led to believe that someone could get an A IN EACH UNIT, BUT STILL NOT GET AN A overall!!!
Apparently 240 out of 300 is needed to get an A, and therefore someone could scrape an A IN EACH PAPER AND NOT COME OUT WITH AN a overall, is this correct?

you need 240/300 to get an A - this is 80%
The boundary to get an A in each paper is 80% UMS, so if you get an A in each module you will get over 240 and will get an A overall.
You could, however, scrape an A in two papers and get a mid-B in one paper and thus get a B overall because you would have a average of below 80%.

^ this is correct.
