    i just did the religious studies A world religions exam on jewish scriptures 1 and 2, the UMS boundaries for an A* is 180 out of 200. both papers are out of 48, and i think there are 4 marks for presentation, spelling, that kind of thing so in total i think it is out of 100. im really really scared ive lost a few marks, how many can i lose but still get an A* ???

    It depends on how everyone else does.
    As its out of 200 overall, they'll scale the papers so that each one is out of 100. How it's scaled each year can change- one year 38/50 (assuming that's what it is) may be worth 90UMS, but the next year you might need 45/50 to get 90 UMS. It's hard to say exactly, for that reason.
