    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.
