# Working out what UMS I need watch

1. I'm currently in year 13, doing AQA English Lit B and need a hand getting my head round what I need for certain grades.

In year 12 I got 137 (C) and on my Lit B4 I got 52 (C), which totals 189.
To my understanding, the whole thing's out of 400 and I need 60% of that, 240, for a C and 70%, 280, for a B. Which means on lit B3, which I believe is worth 120, I need 51 for a C and 91 for a B. Is this right?

Any confirmations/alterations are much appreciated.
2. If you're doing AQA, google 'ums converter AQA' and it'll tell you UMS for each module you've sat so far, how many raw marks etc that's worth.
If you know the UMS grade boundaries for what you need (the ones you said sound about rit to me) then you can work out exactly what number of raw marks you can aim for in your last exam

So using my numbers, 16/80 for a C or 46/80 raw marks for a B which doesn't sound too bad if that's right, thanks.

Problem is that the exact raw marks you will need will vary depending on grade boundaries. But your UMS calculations seem to be correct

You will 51 UMS for a C (or 91 UMS for a B) in your final exam, yes.
