    Okay. I want to study english at cambridge and these are my AS ums scores:


    English - 90/100 A
    Latin - 194/200 A
    Greek - 177/200 A
    Math's - 276/300 A
    FP1 module - 93/100 a


    My concern is that the ums in english is only just on the boarder of cambridge's 90 ums rule.. Am I just being pedantic or should this be genuinely concerning?


    Also the board for my english was CIE. Does anyone have any idea what their marking system is (as in do they convert the raw score into a ums or do they just give you the raw score)? Their website is quite unhelpful in explaining any of this.


    Thank you very much!

    My UMSs are

    Chemistry: 92%
    Economics: 93.5%
    Biology: 96.67%
    Maths: 99%

    I want to study medicine at Cambridge. I suppose the FP1 module won't come in handy since you wish to study English.

    Although on the whole you have good UMS scores.

    The FP1 will hopefully by next year become an AS in further but yeah I know it's not particularly helpful for my course - my school is essentially forcing me to do it, god knows why. I just wanted to know how strict they are with the 90 ums thing.

    I assume that they would be fairly strict, although not 90% per se. Maybe that is a guideline relative to the other people that apply?
