    B is 44/60 and just to recap 49/60 for an A and 60/60 for 100ums. Also a nice formula for calculating given these 3 variables would be helpful in the future! thanks Ll
    If you're looking at Chemistry then 60/60 is 90UMS...

    AS history maybe?
    Yes, all AS. I don't think knowing the grade boundary will help me predict what I'm getting tomorrow for history, because for essay subjects you never can really tell.

    I've shown this on the grade boundary thread but you can say
    70% is 44
    80% is 49
    90% is therefore 49 + (49-44) = 54
    100% is 59.

    Btw, the OCR 100% raw mark column isn't the 100% UMS boundaries, they are just showing the theoretical maximum mark in each unit.

    I wish my grade boundaries were that low
    Are your boundaries bad? I am seriously shocked about BIOL5 but pleased, I need it to get into uni. I wasn't happy with the Edexcel maths boundaries yesterday though

    WJEC grade boundaries aren't released today.

    Edexcel grade boundaries look like they will be released at midnight.

    oh that makes perfect sense. I may have broke 90 then but I'm not sure.

    Grade boundaries for my subjects are reasonable, it's all about whether the papers were marked fairly now!

    does anyone know how to get exact ums to a mark? lets say if I predicted 54/60 for an exam how would I predict the ums given that 49 was an A and 60 was 100ums?
    Ocr have this word document telling you how to do it. Aqa have a list of every mark and it's ums point equivalent. Sorry im on my phone so can't link you to them! Just check their websites
