    UMS is always a fixed x out of 100.
    So it's 80/100, which is an A or B. And 51/100, which is a C or D.
    A or B and C or D will therefore depend on the grade boundaries.
    No BUSS1 is UMS out of 80, and raw is out of 60. You can check it on the AQA website converter.

    And I do have an A and maximum UMS, this is confirmed by teachers.

    How are people getting their raw marks from the Q papers?!?
    My teacher got the marks.

    very good results,
    i'm struggling with edexcel gce maths, any tips mate?
    Thanks!

    I doubt I'll be able to give useful advice , but I found doing questions from the textbook really useful (more so than past papers), so maybe do more of that? If there are any specific problems I can try and help?

    How did you do?

    Does anyone else spend practically more time analysing table after table of unit grade boundaries, cash-in grade boundaries, mark schemes and examiner reports than the actual revision?

    I have a question, I got 92UMS for Economics Unit 1 (Edexcel) - but i was wondering if it is worth getting a remark to see if the marks go up at all.

    What do you think i should do? - Don't get me wrong, i am over the moon about getting a high grade and i don't want to come across as inconsiderate.

    Thanks.

    Yeah that's right (though while it doesn't have to include both FP2 and FP3 - it does in my case). I got 100 in D2 last June which puts me at an average of 90.333... (I know I'm a bit jammy haha). Thanks
    Oh ok, so its three "A2" modules at 90% including at least one of fp2 and fp3? Guess its time to dig out the old stats book and resit S2 i did last june .

    Managed to get 87/90 in F334 so I am happy. I hope all my fellow OCR Salters friends got what they wanted/needed xx
    well done!! I don't know what happened at all I got 57/90, worse than my mock result.

    I understood all the topics too, its just the way the questions were worded, really threw me off. It was a nasty paper, I dont know many people that got an A in it!!

    Question: if you re-sit a unit and get worse, do you always keep the higher (i.e. original) mark?

    I think you get the better mark, it's only the remark that you can get your marks down.
