The grades are always a certain percentage of the total UMS on offer. 80% for an A, 70% for a B, down to <40% for a U. So for a paper out of 90; 72 is an A, 63 is a B, etc.

Coursework (A2) is 60, synoptic is 60, together they make /120, which is the UMS mark that you see.
Combined with AS coursework, this gives 25% of the overall A level
