    I just got my mark back for OCR GCSE History B, paper one. I got 87UMS, which was a grade equivalent of an A*. However I have no clue what the maximum UMS is, I'd imagine it's probably 90, but some people are saying 91. To me 91UMS seems a very weird number for an exam to be out of. I'd be very grateful if someone could tell me what it is out of, thanks. (:

    Oh also, how did everyone do? In my school there were a lot of unexpectedly low grades, people who usually got A's/A*'s came out with C's in many cases. It was probably due to the stupid U.S depth study source questions, they were annoying.

    If you're doing AS the UMS would be 100. Just look at this: http://www.ocr.org.uk/images/128198-...nuary-2013.pdf
