    Why is the UMS converter showing the same marks then?
    Explain
    Honestly I don't know it's doesn't actually affect me that much. But I just think that it doesn't seem right. Personally as unlikely as it is I've seen a few things that have made me think that the websites been hacked.

    I opened the UMS converter on my phone in an iPhone app called numbers - it changed his format so basically showed grade boundaries but they are completely different to the apparent boundaries we've all seen?

    I'm aware of the UK boundaries. PlayerBB does IAL, so she was looking at the wrong boundaries.

    To claim it is hacked would be a drastic assumption to make. If someone can hack edexcel what's stopping them from hacking UCAS and leaking everyone's offers/rejections?

    Edexcel have underwent colour and logo changes by the looks of it. That's why everything seems different, (a bit obvious since they're opening up for the new alevels/gcses)

    This Simon titley? https://gb.linkedin.com/in/simon-titley

    If you actually looked you'd see that he works in recruitment and other NON EXAM related areas
    It says he works in Student Services and that part of his role is 'Improving customer experience by designing and managing initiatives to make complicated and regulated process processes more transparent. This included managing the creation of digital content.'

    The UMS calculator probably comes under that sort of thing.

    But either way, we will find out tomorrow anyway. No use debating it now.

    Making random guesses about my history AS performance

    Doubt if I just scraped an A (which I think I have, if I'm lucky) there's much point in a Cambridge application this October eh wanting to apply for history...

    There'll be people with 99/100
    Why will there be? What board did you do?

    Did you scroll right to the bottom on the 'Raw' tab? Because that tab shows all the grade boundaries of all the series since 2001. I looked at the maths boundaries on there (took an age to get to them) and they seemed to be the same as the ones in the grades boundaries document thingy.

    Does it really matter if the grade boundaries are fake? The grades you receive will be the same

    I did edexcel!

    The grade boundaries are high, and I missed out a whole question. I may have just scraped an A, or got a high B 😫
