    Guys what would I need in S1 if i got 74/75 in C1 and 55/75 in C2, I don't understand how UMS works.
    Really depends on what the grade boundaries are, but just aim for full marks. For an A, probably 65-70 marks.

    Edit: which means around 65/75?

    Going by last years UMS, I need 70 UMS in S1 to get an A overall. But yeah I am aiming for 70+ in S1

    I think you'll need a mid A for an A overall around 68/75?

    Ergh UMS and marks are confusing. I calculated to get 80% of the 225 total marks, I need 51 in S1 (which seems waaaayyyyy too low). And by total UMS, I need 70 more, which is a low B, which again seems too low.

    But I'm hoping to get 70+ marks in S1 as it isn't really that hard

    Not sure why some people are saying they need a high mark in their applied unit..

    If you got 70+ in C1 that should be ~90 UMS. 60 here would be around ~76/80. Then you just need a B in your applied unit.

    If you are only in year 12 I wouldn't worry too much...
    I sat this paper as a resit from getting an E last year and I predict I have got 72/75 this time around. You will find C2 much easier after doing C3 and C4

    Remember grade boundaries aren't always 80% often they're around 85% for an A
