    UMS is always 90% for an A*.

    Edexcel Maths A – is linear so doesn't use UMS. Grade boundaries change. November 2013: 169/200 (raw)
    Edexcel Maths B – 360/400 (UMS)
    Edexcel Physics – 288/320 (UMS)
    Edexcel Chemistry – 288/320 (UMS)
    Edexcel Biology – 288/320 (UMS)
    AQA Religious Studies – 180/200 (UMS)
    AQA English Language – 270/300 (UMS)
    WJEC Geography – 180/200 (UMS)

    As above. I'm not sure why you would need to know what UMS mark is required because it is not remotely useful ...

    You'd probably be more interested in raw mark boundaries... that's the ACTUAL mark you get in an examination paper – why convert to UMS which is only a bother when you take different units in different sessions?

    The UMS mark is extremely useful.

    For who/what exactly?

    When I said it is not useful, I was talking specifically for the OP because, if 90% UMS is always an A*, I don't know how that could help a GCSE student. It's certainly not helpful for me to know that anyway.

    It's useful for working out what kind of marks you need, especially for modular specifications. If you know your UMS from cashed in modules/coursework, you can work out more or less exactly what kind of mark you need in the final exams to get a certain grade.

    weeelll, I stand corrected.

    but I still think the OP's question was probably pointless.

    It was, but it's because he didn't understand what UMS is.
