# overall grade after i resit?? watch

1. Okay, so i'm resitting 1 of the 2 AQA AS exams for psychology in a couple of weeks. In all the past papers i've been doing i'm getting an A, and so i'm hoping this'll happen in the actual exam too...

my question is: if i'm resitting and get an A, and have a D in the other exam, what would be my overall grade?...
2. C/B depending on how high the D/A is.

Rough estimate though. You need to give us your UMS marks so we can give you an accurate percentage of what you need to get an A.
3. It depends on what your UMS is. Each exam you do is out of 100 UMS, making the total out of 200 UMS. A D is anywhere from 50-60 UMS. so I'll take the middle which is 55 UMS. An A is anywhere from 80-100 UMS, so I'll take the middle which is 90 UMS. Now if add them up you get 145 UMS which is a B, if you get anything higher or lower then just look at these grade boundaries

160/200 = A
140/200 = B
120/200 = C
100/200 = D
80/200 = E
