    so basically i was wondering out of 100
    how many ums marks do i need for an overall A* A and B?
    Ive got my results for b1a and i got 43 so how many more would i need on my next for an overall A* ??
    and i got 37 in p1a so how much more would i need for an overall A?

    Well when I did my Core Science papers (not the modular ones, just the written one in each science) the UMS marks worked like this:
    90 - A*
    80 - A
    70 - B
    etc.. and I think that's the same throughout.
    So for an overall A* in your B1a and B1b you'd need to get 47+ in B1b, and for an overall A in your P1a and P1b you'd need to get 43+ in P1b.
    Hope I helped, and I hope that's right
    Good luck!
