    I heard about this whole A* thing they were supposedly introducing, but then later read they weren't doing it anymore. Just asking this because I got a load of work back the other day for S1 and it was graded A*.... I got 100% but I still didn't think that they were introducing it anymore, or am I wrong?
    It's the first piece of work that I've got an A* for and I've had several pieces of work from different teachers with 100% but only said A and not A*.

    So which is right? Just a bit confused...

    In mathematics- an A* grade can be attained if the certificate for the A-Level is redeemed in 2010.

    You'll need an average of an A grade- (480/600) + 90% average SMS across C3 and C4.

    C1, C2, M1, S1, D1, M2, S2, D2 are not given A* grades.
