    I got a C overall for my AS result which I am annoyed with as I was hoping for a B.

    I got overall 196 which is a C with:
    65 (b) in F211 (Cells, Exchange and Transport)
    95 (c) in F212 (Molecules, Biodiversity, Food and Health)
    36 (c) in F213 (Practical Skills in Biology 1)

    I think those are the UMS points.

    I was wondering if anyone knew the grade boundaries for any of these and if so if there is any point in me getting a remark for any...

    Any help would be great as I ideally would like an A at the end of A Level.



    If you scroll down to biology, there is the UMS and raw mark grade boundaries

    Hey everyone! Need a bit of help!

    AS Results:


    Total UMS: 244
    UMS Equivalent grade: A

    F211: 88/90 - A
    F212: 118/150 - B
    F213: 38/60 - C

    I am happy with results. However, I wanted to know how to convert these into raw marks. The grade boundaries only show you the raw marks for A, B, C, etc. Can anyone convert these into raw marks?

    I wish OCR has a UMS converter like AQA does!!

    How many UMS do you need overall for a B i got 202 Ums overall.

    You need 210 ums to get a B in AS Biology so you need 24 more ums to get a B

    Got C overall

    72/90 (A) unit 1
    105/150 (B)
    25/60 (E) practical

    7 ums of B so was dissapointed
