    Both papers are out of 100, and so your total mark will be out of 200.
    Looking at the grade boundaries for foundation in June 2010, you needed 140/200 to get a C; this means you need around 70/100 on both papers, depending on the difficulty of the paper.

    Maths doesn't normally involve UMS conversion, raw marks normally equal UMS.

    For your interest, if you took higher, you would only have needed 46/200, which is 23/100 per paper for a C.

    Hope I could help, and good luck with your maths

    Yup, but please don't get stessed. Work hard, but most of all, enjoy your time studying. That's what gets me through.

    Good luck
