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?

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.
Your raw mark percentage doesn't matter. They take the raw marks out of 60 and convert them to the grade boundaries ensuring the right number of candidates get each grade. Allowing for hard or easy papers. Therefore you would get the Ums. Even if 85% on the paper is an A that would still mean 80
