Im sure you guys at TSR must of seen posts like this a thousand times before, so sorry for my rookie skills at working out what I need! Ive tried a few example calculators but none seem to work for me so below are my grades for two A levels and im just wondering what i will need in June for A's.

Chemistry A level Aqa ( all figures in UMS)

Unit 1 82/100.............16.6% of Alevel
Unit 2 100/140...........23.3% of Alevel
Unit 3 45/60...............10% of Alevel
Unit 4 108/120...........20% of Alevel
Unit 5 ???/120............20% of Alevel
Unit 6 46/60...............10% of Alevel

Business Studies A Level Aqa (all figures in UMS)

Unit 1 61/80...............20% of Alevel
Unit 2 102/120...........30% of Alevel
Unit 3 82/100.............25% of Alevel
Unit 4 ???/100............25% of Alevel

If ive missed any key information just give me a quote cheers!
So what would I require in UMS to gain an A in both cases
Thanks for any help much appreciated!

I do business AQA. Unit three has only 100 UMS available, not 120, same goes for unit four.

So let's calculate.

So in total there are 400 UMS available for the whole A level. You have already obtaned 245 from units 1,2 & 3. For an A, 320 UMS is required, so you would need 75 UMS from unit 4, which is a mid-range B grade.

All this ofcourse depends on if the scores you have provided are correct.

For an A level with 4 units, (UMS) boundries are like so:

160/400 = E
200/400 = D
240/400 = C
280/400 = B
320/400 = A
360/400 = A*

Hope this helps!

Ohhh sorry, I assumed that seeing BUSS2 was out of the same marks as BUSS3&4 the UMS would be the same, obviously not ! Yeah all the UMS are correct to what I got a few weeks ago... thanks a lot !!

right well if we add all the total UMS we get 100+140+60+120+120+60=600 UMS

You need 80% of 600 to get an A, so 480 UMS total.

You currently have 82+100+45+108+46 = 381

So in Unit 5 you need 480-381 = 99 UMS to get an A overall.

So you need to get 99/120
