Take 80% as an A. Therefore 48/60 and about 31/38. However, that is UMS not raw, so even if you felt you have got less that, with moderation it will probably go up.

In june 2003, it was:

unit 1 - 38/60 for 80% ums
unit 2 - 40/60 for 80% ums
unit 3 - 50ish/70 for 80% ums

(obviously each grade is 10% raw less than an A, eg unit one was 38/60 for an A, 32/60 for a B (70% ums))

The June 2005 report showed it to be roughly the same, i would hazard aguess to say that for A's in the upcoming as's it will be between 38 and 42 our of 60 for 80% ums on the first two modules, and roughly 50 out of 70 in unit 3.

It's impossible to tell exactly as it depends on how well people do and how hard the paper is.

a) don't count on it
b) bear in mind that you need to get a good grade in your AS exams on Edexcel because on Unit 5 and Unit 6 your scores will drop through the floor as they're synoptic (I know I'm pessimistic )

If you want some revision notes specific to edexcel then go to here:

and look at the revision forum - it's basically just my Biology notes that i've been doing today for the synoptic paper so they mostly cover Modules 1 and 2
