    I don't think it was even that harsh marking, I think a lot of people didn't do so well across the board in biology! I mean, it's not just the one exam! The exam I sat which is f215 has a 64 for an A!!

    To calculate the full ums boundary you do the marks for an A - marks for a B
    Double this value
    Add it to the marks needed for an A

    So 69-62 = 7
    7x2 = 14
    69+14 = 83

    I'm fairly hopeful having seen the grade boundaries for an A. Although we don't know how they've been marked, I find it amazing how you can drop 31 marks and still achieve an A.

    F211 on the other hand is 43/60. But it's so hard to predict your F211 grade as there's so little room for error. I hate F211!

    My overall grade is:

    Grade: C
    Equiv: 190
    Points 105

    What do these mean?
    How far into a C is it?
    I'm confused.
