    like on the grade boundaries that are released, is it possible, for the person who calculates the results to get it wrong in the post, for example, a got a B in business yes, however it states I got 64 marks for an A, then 48 c then 33 c. total 145. got a B.

    http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...-JUNE-2016.PDF look at the marks, for an A totals 127, the exams I did was applied business, unit 1, unit 2, unit 3.

    also, how did you find out your maths grade mark, not grade

    Just out of interest, how do you calculate marks/UMS for Mathematics A Linear with Edexcel because only 'points' are shown on my results letter, as well as the grade. But there is nothing under mark equivalent. Thanks.

    You usually have to ask your teacher for the marks!

    Can someone please explain the Resistant Materials Grade Boundaries to me I'm a little confused. In my coursework I got 216 = A* and in my exam I got 134 = A but on the grade boundaries it says that the max mark for the coursework is 90 and you need 84 for an A* and the max for the exam is 120 and you need 96 for an A*. I'm looking to get it remarked but don't know how far away I am. Thanks in advance <3 xx
    Which exam board is this for? your results are in UMS and some boards have UMS to raw mark calculators well done on your excellent marks!

    Thank you! It was for AQA Ive found the calculator but I also do computer science with AQA and they didn't give me separate grades for controlled assessment and exam and they didn't give me my mark equivalent for further maths so i'm not sure how far away i am from the grade boundaries x

    Can anyone find the overall raw mark boundaries for AQA exams? I can find the raw marks for each separate unit, which is helpful, but I want to know how many raw marks I was off the overall grade (for example AQA Science and Additional Science).

    You have to choose your qualification and the examination and it will convert UMS and raw xx

    Probably not - marks in Maths are usually marked correctly. Well done on the B though!

    What device are you using? If I remember correctly it seems to update earlier on a phone rather than a laptop etc, because I have the option for 2016! I can do it for you if necessary
