I think you need an A in AS and then 90% + in your A2 exams. I want to do this for geog but think it is out of my reach! I missed of an A by 2 marks in AS geog. So if I get 95% in A2 then I will get an A*

Good luck!!!
Do you need 90% overall as well as in the A2 exams?
Thanks :)

I think the break up is simply A in your AS even if it was just an A by one mark....then 90% in your A2. 

So if you retake then you have a better chance of getting the A*. Hope this make sense.

Thanks by the way!
