    If anyone has the Edexcel UMS Converter...could you please tell me for the June 2013 UK C1 Paper if I get 71/75..what UMS is it?
    And for C2 If I get 64/75 or 65/75...what would they be in UMS?
    And for S1 if I get 62/72?
    Thank you!
    from working it out :

    71/75 on C1 should get you 93-94 UMS ( not sure which one )
    65/75 on C2 ( same mark as me ) should get you 84-85 UMS ( again most likely 85 but not sure )
    62/75 on S1 should get you 81-82 UMS ( once again... i dunno which one hahaha )

    oviously thats not fully accurate , i am basing that on the differences between the A boundary and the 90 UMS boundary and working out how many marks per UMS mark , then totalling up from there.

    So is Edexcel releasing theirs at 00:01 tomorrow? I am nervous for Spanish :/. Anyone else waiting for edexcel Spanish AS?
    Yes and no...
    Haha!

    I awaited for Spanish on AQA and they were reduced because of their ridiculous inventions to the normal examination content.

    EdExcel is same difficulty, I think...
    How did you think your board went for Spanish!?

    Yeah, I am! I really messed up my speaking because I get ridiculously nervous but the writing and reading paper was fine. Also, it helps that I've been living in Spain for 8 years now though lol
    The results come out at 6A.M. Thursday if you're talking about the grade boundaries they've already released that.
    Got them now thanks! 56 is quite good, 40 is a little higher than expected for the speaking, was expecting 38 :P but oh well!

    Apart from the listening that was difficult for me, everything else was fairly good!

    If anyone wants to work out their UMS exactly, if they have already calculated an estimate mark from unofficial mark schemes. AQA's UMS converter has just been updated to include AS exams.

    Ocr chemistry f322 is too high for an A

    I think it should be 78/77 for an A.

    Ocr economics f582 is too high for an A, should be 45

    Jus hope I scrape an A in chem AS

    I think you're right about the f322 boundaries being too high!! :|

    I completely agree that F322 boundary is waay too high. My coursework grade is so bad I know I've got a B, probably like 2 UMS from an A . Hope you get that A though
