    there's no clear cut answer

    Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't

    It depends on the difficulty of the paper and what not

    Ok, because I read somewhere that to calculate what the full UMS cut off is, you would see the difference in RAW marks between A and B double this difference and add it to the RAW marks of A. This gives you full UMS. I cant seem to find the thread again!!

    You can get full UMS yes without full raw. For example I do business, 1 year it was 64/80 for the full 120 UMS. The next year it was like 71/80 for full UMS. UMS just varies each year depending on the difficulty of the paper.

    ^ it 2 days before the exam, you might be a bit too late. But you could go through mark schemes and Lexafish notes.
