If a student sits one A2 applied unit as a part of their normal A level in mathematics they have to score 270 combined on the A2 units to get an A star. If they had done 2 AS units for their applied modules they would only have to get 180 UMS on C3/4 to get an A star. If, for some reason, they opt for 2 A2 units then it goes to 360 UMS from the 4 A2 units. Fair on the candidate? ps Im not looking for an argument on whether schools should teach different combos.
