1. Calculating ISA score (PHA3T/6T)
I've been looking around for ages, but I can't find the answer.

I've done two ISAs, and I've only been given the raw grades for each.

3T - 32/50
6T - 31/50

I've found ISA information for scores out of 40, but they are out dated. Can anyone provide an estimate as to the value of these grades? They were sat in 2012 but the next most accurate information will suffice.

I need the UMS score and preferably the grade too

Any thoughts?

Cheers

Ahh. I'd already looked there, but I must've chosen the wrong date for it. Cheers.

Hmm. Teacher must've given me dodgy information. Apparently I was one of the best in the class, yet my UMS shows that I barely passed. Urghh. I'll have to get back to him with that.

As I say, I think I've been given dodgy information. The score I remember getting was more like a 46/48, but the teacher might not have updated his laptop with the latest scores. Apparently I was the best in the class, so at least for 3T the 48 seems more probable.
