    Surely not when each boundary is 8/9 marks why would it jump up 18

    You double the A* - A boundary (or A and B) and add to A*, but that might not work...

    Isn't that because A-Levels only go up to A grade (80%), but ours have the A* (90%) so we don't have to double it?

    I just checked for an AQA exam and 100 UMS was 39 then 90 was 36 then 80 was 33 but 70 was 27:confused:. I suppose it's just kind of random depending on peoples marks.
