OCR Physics A - UMS Grades

    • Thread Starter


    I'm looking to go to Camp America next year, and need to pay for majority of it now.

    I know the G484 - Newtonian World resit exam is quite late this year, 28/29th June or something, and I need to leave by 25th June latest.

    Could someone explain to me how the UMS points work with this Physics course.

    G481 : Mechanics - 72 (a)
    G482 : Electrons/Waves/Protons - 133 (a)
    G483 : Practical Skills - 46 (a)

    I know I've got 2 more exams and 1 more practical task to do. I need to get an A to get into the uni's that I applied for.

    If this exam in January doesn't go to well, realistically do I still stand a chance of getting an A with my current UMS points, because I don't want to waste the £300.


    G481 is out of 90
    G482 is out of 150
    G483 is out of 60

    The whole,is out of 300.
    You need 240 (80%) for an A.

    You have 251 so you are currently 11 marks over the A grade boundary.
