    When we get our results. Are they raw marks, or are they UMS (hense the title, lol)?
    when i get my marks for D1 in august, i want to know what my result will be. since a friend of mine thinks he got a C in D1 last year, it lead me to think that the marks were raw, and that he actually probably got an A.
    thanks for any help,

    You can get a table/graph off your teacher though and find out your raw marks by mapping it accordingly to the table/graph.

    Well i don't know about all boards but AQA send the teachers the actual marks as well - cos i got my raw marks back for maths
    And actually thinking about it Caroline had our raw marks for Biology as well and that was Edexcel...
    So ask your teachers
    But your slip will only have UMS on it

    Yeah. For example, P5 June '03 (Edexcel), you needed 64/75 to get an A. That's apporximately 85% for 80 UMS. Yikes!

    In general, if people do really well on the whole, and you don't do as well as the average, let's say, then you may end up with a lower UMS than you actually got in terms of raw marks.

    pretty harsh - even harder to get 100% in it then:eek:

    Well, tbh, the paper wasn't that bad. I tried it yesterday, and got 65, but I really should've got 75.

    Lost 1 mark because I didn't label the asymptote on a graph.
    Lost 4 marks because I could've reduced I1 to I0, but for some reason didn't.
    Lost 5 marks in the very last question because I worked out 2 + 5/2 as 9/4 (:|)
    Incidently, the bulk of the marks for the last question came from writing: cost = 1/2, and then doing a little solving, rather than the s***load of writing I had done earlier just to get to that stage :rolleyes:

    All in all, careless stuff. But I'm satisfied, since I'm getting ever more comfortable with it. Just gotta cut out the crap. =o
