    I'm looking to go to Camp America next year, and need to pay for majority of it now.

    I know the G484 - Newtonian World resit exam is quite late this year, 28/29th June or something, and I need to leave by 25th June latest.

    Could someone explain to me how the UMS points work with this Physics course.

    G481 : Mechanics - 72 (a)
    G482 : Electrons/Waves/Protons - 133 (a)
    G483 : Practical Skills - 46 (a)

    I know I've got 2 more exams and 1 more practical task to do. I need to get an A to get into the uni's that I applied for.

    If this exam in January doesn't go to well, realistically do I still stand a chance of getting an A with my current UMS points, because I don't want to waste the £300.


    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.

    They've got over 160,000+ essays, projects, assignments, coursework etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level and Uni students. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.

    All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site’s used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    Hopefully you'll find it useful

    G481 is out of 90
    G482 is out of 150
    G483 is out of 60

    The whole,is out of 300.
    You need 240 (80%) for an A.

    You have 251 so you are currently 11 marks over the A grade boundary.
