    What, something's definitely wrong here, supposedly harsher marking with fewer students getting the grades and everyone I have seen on here has very high ums, and even I got 100ums, when I've being getting A's before. However, all my coursework's were marked down by at least 3 raw marks, which equates to 10ums, otherwise I'd have had all A*s. Damn.
    That's entirely because the only people who go on these forums are people who want to do well and work for their 100UMS's :P

    Unfortunately for me, with my coursework being marked down to 85 ums, I'm 6 off the boundary, so will hopefully be getting that remarked, same with Chem.
    Good luck lol

    Got 100 UMS in all Unit 3's. I've got no idea why the grade boundaries were so low, I've never got full UMS in a Science module before so to get all three at once is very strange.

    100 UMS in this exam and also the Chemistry Unit 3 one as well. I'm not sure how! I know the boundaries were quite low but I found the exams really hard so this shocked me :O

    Well done! That's great! I got A* overall in bio (381), chem (382) and physics (376).
    Was you close to an A* in biology? Remark?

    I had 342 UMS on bio. So unless they were out my 18 marks, I doubt it
