    According to the AQA website, grade boundaries (not necessarily mark schemes) will be posted on eAQA at 00:01.

    If you could, please continue checking to see if they are delayed in the uploading,

    We would all be grateful. Thanks.

    I can tell you all that AQA are doing something to the e-AQA site at the minute because before 12 the mark schemes link wasn't there, now it is - there are no mark schemes however
    Could anyone who has access to eAQA possibly look to see if the Computing COMP1 and COMP2 June 2013 mark schemes are uploaded? Thanks!

    UMS boundaries are always the same - you always need 80% overall for an A, 70% overall for a B etc.

    For the A* (except maths), you need to score at least 80% over the full A-Level AND 90% over the A2 units. For maths, you need to score at least 80% over the full A-Level and 90% over C3 and C4.

    I'm so confused. In my Psychology I apparently only got an E for both the tests yet got a Mark of 48 for both of them, according to the grade boundaries I should of got a B. Can someone help?
    the mark shows ur 'ums' points, not raw marks. so 48 was an E in the ums column of the grade boundaries, not the raw marks

    I feel your pain! 1 UMS off an A* in English lit Only non-A*! But paying £40 for a remark is ridiculous, and others would think I'm being ridiculous! But I got my place

    Hi
    I just got my results I do OCR Biology and received a total of 503 UMS, I wanted to know the ums for an A*?. At AS level i achieved a total of 260 UMS and at A2 i acheived 243 UMS. would i get an A* if i were to retake one my biology practicals again.

    What if I were to retake both my AS and A2 practicals to get a total of 540 UMS? will that be an A* or Is it specifically just the A2 UMS I need to get up to 270 (90%)

    I cannot make any sense of the AQA Grade Boundaries: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...-JUNE-2013.PDF

    The 'Maximum Scaled Mark' surely cannot be the maximum mark attainable as I have exceeded this figure in some of my examinations. I only wanted to see how far into the 'A' boundary I was, and now I am pretty confused.

    Can anybody enlighten me?

    The maximum scaled mark is the maximum number of raw marks obtainable in a paper. Eg my ECON 2 paper was out of 75 marks, so maximum scaled mark is 75, but my results slip said 90/100. That's because I got 90 UMS in this exam after it went through the Uniform Mark Scheme
    You'll notice I chose ECON 2 and not 1 because I did so much worse in unit 1

    So how do I find out my raw mark? Is there not a way to convert UMS back to the actual mark?

    AQA has a converter. If you go on it and select "convert multiple marks" you get a table which shows all possible raw and UMS marks
