    Well my teacher said you find out the percentage normally, and then add around 7 to it, to get the UMS. Although, I think this is not true, and he said he is not fully aware of the exact methods.

    I think it depends on which one you do as I think it changes. I would say it's a safe A.

    I found on the AQA site it's a B, to get an A you need 34/40 which is 85% which I think is ridiculous as everywhere else on AQA you only need 80% for an A. Does anyone know if I'd still be awarded 80 UMS and is 34/40 85 UMS?

    Well that would make it 80/100. So I think thats just an A, but I'm not too sure

    According to AQA it's a B and you need 34/40 (85%) an A, which is stupid because 80% on everything else is always an A on AQA. Would I still be awarded 80 UMS even though it's a B?

    No, I am pretty sure the UMS marks would be in accordance to the grade so you'd have a score between 70-79.
