an A for biology module 4 was 63%
i got 74/90 UMS points, so i got 65% on that exam
very confusing, im sure i scored a minumum of 80% in that exam.

an A for biology module 3 was 65%
i got 105/120 UMS points for that which means i scored 71% on that exam
again, confusing, im sure i scored about 95% on that exam.

That's chatcrap:
ECN6 was out of 90 and I got 63, which should here be A and not B...
And I reckon I'm owed more than 78 and 83 for M1 and S1 respectively...

the maximum scaled mark is the maximum mark that the paper was out of
the A grade boundary gets you 72/90 or 96/120 or 84/105

e.g

accounting 1 - max 80

A = 69/80 = 86% (probably because it was an easy exam)
the 69/90 on the paper would get you 72/90 UMS marks..which is 80%

63/90 = 70% = right on a B

looking at scale mark for a B - 48/100 = 48%

so 48% on the paper got you 70% UMS points..(which suggests it was a solid exam)

You're saying I only got 48% (hence 48 marks) in the exam? But I thought I smacked it!!! All that revision, for ****'s sake...

AQA seems the most internet friendly board (apart from edexcel putting the results on-line) so I doubt OCR or edexcel would have the boundaries on their websites.

I would really like to know the grade boundaries for OCR. I heard some very...interesting news related to the Biology A2 results on Thursday...i'm feeling v. guilty and unsure about the two A grades i recieved.

It is the maximum number of raw marks you can get on a paper.

well if it is difficult then it is justified in being low.

i can assure you that particular computing exam wasn't difficult in the slightest.

Same here mate. In the exam I thought I spanked it. The boundaries seem quite low! AQA deserve some credit for being internet friendly, but I'm not sure if it's a good thing, them being very open.
