    Hey guys, I put one of my unit 2 exams as pending when I sent my application off in October. However, I didn't resit that exam, as I did well in unit 3. will this mess my application up? Thanks

    it was a reasonably easy paper yes, the essay was definitely a surprise, an essay dedicated to the inflation rate and exchange rate. I assume this high boundary is due to a leninent MS!
    Ah unlucky, I now wanna see how the Edexcel one fares...

    edexcel biologist/mathematician, what is the difference between paper01 and paper01R??
    01R means it was taken by international students in countries several hours ahead of the UK - they get a different paper to avoid the answers getting leaked online before the majority of students (in the UK) take it.

    As they're completely different papers they all have different grade boundaries. If you're in the UK you definitely only look at the ones without the R.

    I'm sure you don't suck at maths
    Yeah that's so true...our future lies in the judgement of the examiner
    Wow..that's weird or maybe you were just better at unit 2? Is this Business Studies GCSE?
    I got a U in january in core 3
    lets hope they mark nicely! yea aqa business gcse! so weird, I did buss1 in january of year11 and got a B, so I resat in june and got a B againnn, only 1 mark higher!
    so overall I only got a B at gcse, then an A at AS aha.

    how do people go about converting raw to UMS?
    Get the full marks of you paper, divide that by the full UMS, and the number you get is what you multiply your raw mark by.

    Eg. Maths on edexcel is out of 75 marks and 100 UMS. So I do 75/100 = 1.3333

    So if I think I got 62marks, I do 62 x 1.3333 = 82.6 UMS so 83 UMS

    Reasonable boundaries for the econ units for edexcel, though I was hoping for slightly more lenient ones for unit 3 but that's just because I bombed it, it wasn't that difficult an exam. Hopefully scraped the A.

    It's a plot by the exam boards to make us deliriously tired, so when we're on the phone to admissions tutors we make absolute tits of ourselves and thus are forced into taking a gap year full of retakes.
    More money for them :devil:
    Haha tits. Edexcel GB page not loading..such tits

    This is not correct, the boundaries are only linear from E to A and (separately) A to 100%.
