    I took that ISA and I think that it was 6T but I'm not 100% sure

    BIO1 max(60), A(42), B(37), C(33), D(29)
    BIO2 max(85), A(60), B(54), C(48), D(42)

    LTA1C- max(90), A(59), B(51), C(43), D(35)

    history-

    Unit Module Session 100' 90' 80' 70' 60' 50' 40'

    6677 M1 Jun-13 68 62.0 56 50 44 38 32

    So for example for these boundaries I know that

    70% is 50

    80% is 56

    90% is 62

    100% is 68

    Spoiler:
    Show


    Step I I think I got 64/75 which is an A

    Step II There are 56-75 marks i.e. 19marks in the A boundary

    Step III There are 20marks in the equivalent A ums grade

    Step IV the conversion factor is 10/5 = 2

    STEP V I think I scored 8 marks over the boundary

    STEP VI 8 x 2 = 16

    robbie scored 16+80=96



    Is this right? Is the conversion factor correct?

    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.
    So for FP1, the A boundary is 64/72 and B is 57. So the 90 UMS boundary is 71 and the 100 UMS boundary is 72?!?! If I get 71 I'm going to be so hacked off!!

    10 UMS for 1 mark, thats utterly ridiculous.
