    The coursework for A2 is out of 80 raw marks. Does anyone have an idea how many raw marks are worth one uniform mark?

    Raw Marks | UMS Marks ( this is from the top of my head so may not be entirely correct).

    63 - 72
    58 - 64
    50 - 56
    42 - 48
    36 - 40
    30 - 32

    Obviously as you go down in raw marks; raw marks are rising in value in terms of ums marks. When you get to around 20 marks its just 1 raw mark = 1 ums.

    Erm.. the coursework is out of 70 raw marks and 80 UMS!
    It's pretty simple to work out actually.. (considering it[ums] doesn't change much over the years)
    Say if you got 60 out of 70 raw marks
    to convert it to UMS- all you got to do is: 60 divide by 70, then multiply by 80 ! {60/70 * 80 }
    so the actual mark you get, divide by the total mark for the coursework, multiply by 80 (UMS is out of 80 -that's why! )
    Simple maths! Hope it helps.

    You don't just convert it. As they may choose the UMS's percentages to be a lot higher or lot lower than the percentage for the raw mark
