# Can anyone explain the numbers to me. :( Watch

Announcements
1. Hi, we are ex pats and I just returned to the UK to sit my AS as an external candidate after studying at home this last year, so we don't really have a school or anyone i can ask about this. I'm really upset that I got a C in business studies, as I came out of the exam thinking I'd done great. I don't know whether to go for a remark or not, as I'm not sure what all the numbers on the transcript they faxed me means. Not sure if I just missed a B or was lucky to get a C . I do have the grade boundaries from AQA, but don't know which numbers on the transcript I should be using, as none of them seem to come near any boundaries. Next to the grade, under mark equivalent, it says 126. For points it says 105. For unit 1 it says 52c and for unit 2 it says 74c. Can anyone help us understand what these mean? The figures for scaled mark boundaries on AQA for a C, are 30 and 45; and for a B are 34 and 50. Thank you!
2. Out of 200,
160+ = A
140 = B
120 = C
100 = D
80 = E
Under 80 = U

So 126 is a low C in terms of UMS, may not go up with a remark as and extra 14 is a big ask

thanks Burty. . So do these numbers apply to all subjects? In which case it's maybe the other 3 I need to be appealing, as I got 159 (B) in all of them. So disappointed in the C, but can't believe I neatly got an A in everything else, when I really struggled with them. Makes no sense

I would certainly remark all the others if you got 159 in the other 3 as 1 ums is very realistic to get! Either way BBBC is still great grades, but obviously if any turn to As that would be fantastic!
