    Not sure where to put this or how to find out about it. I can't find the overall grade boundaries for psychology a level (OCR).
    I want to know how much I need to get to get a C overall.

    I took the AS exams in summer 2011 and the A2 exams in january 2013.
    I got two Cs in AS (UMS score 129) and for A2 exams I got a C (60) and a U (19 - lol I flunked this one because I have bipolar and completely crashed that week).
    Overall I have a ums score of 208 and a D.
    Subtracting the 19 I'd have 189. How much would I need to get in the paper I flunked to get a C overall?

    Does anyone know where/what the overall boundaries are?
    Thanks for any help, I'm at a loss here.
    (I've looked at the OCR website and found individual exam grade boundaries but not overall a-level boundaries.)

    Thank you! How do you know that? Am I being blind to something?

    The grade boundaries are the same for all 4 unit subjects, all exam boards:

    A* - at least 180 from A2 units and at least 320 overall.
    320 or more - A
    280-319 - B
    240 - 279 - C
    200 - 239 - D
    160 - 199 - E
