    Hello fellow TSRians.

    As it says in the title really. I just got my AS results for OCR Biology and Chemistry and AQA English Lit. How do I work out the overall grades?

    you have to work out the percentage.. so if it was worth 200 UMS marks altogether and you got 140, then that would be 70% ((140/200 x 100) and you'd have a B..

    an A is 80%
    B 70 %
    C 60%
    D 50%
    E 40%
    and a U is anything less

    hope this helped!

    This is what ily_em told me: Add up the module grades. For subjects like maths and the sciences it is out of 300 but other subjects it's normally out of 200 now.

    Out of 300: 240 = A, 210 = B, 180 = C, 150 = D, 120 = E

    Out of 200: 160 = A, 140 = B, 120 = C, 100 = D, 80 =
