    The set the scalars for each individual module, so it isn't necessarily that you need 80% in raw marks to get an A in each module, but rather if it was a really hard paper when they scale it up to UMS, they add extra marks and don't just straight convert it. I did the old syllabus M1 today (as in I had an hour and twenty minutes to do it) and I found it fine. I guess you can always retake next year.

    The way your AS grade is determined is your UMS from each of the three modules is added together to a score out of 300 and there are then UMS boundaries for each grade.

    One annoying thing about ums is if you get a low B, its still a B, oppositely, if you get a high C it only counts as a C, regardless of high or low.

    indeed true.

    but that's just the way it is

    another annoying feature is that getting 100% UMS does NOT mean you got the paper perfect.

    A rough estimate (i've been VERY strict): 70% C1, 70% C2 and 40% M1 on average 60%. (Baring in mind M1 was confusing). Normally a C is around 62% isn't it?
    Oh i'm so annnoyed, probably won't even get a C!

    I know, all the past papers were easy i could do them and drop about 2 marks, but that was impossible. All the questions about strings being attached to rings, i didnt even know which direction the forces (like friction) were acting in. I couldnt do 1. ii) either. That should get scaled up cos it was ridiculous.

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thought it was horrible. At least there's hope they'll lower the grade boundaries.
