1. So, if you had 79.5% for example, would they round it up or not?
2. They would not, a friend of mine got 239/300, still got a B.

You need to get the 80% UMS mark

No, it would be a B.

If you got 79.5% then it would get rounded up to 80% but it's very unlikely to get 79.5% in any exam lol

5. that's a ridicolous question
6. No, you have to get 80% to get an A
7. I got 239/300 in AS chemistry which I believe is 79.6% and it was a B.
If it's not over 80%, it's not an A.
