    On the Edexcel website for grade boundaries it gives the number of UMS needed for a unit grade, how do i find the number of UMS marks needed for the grade for the whole AS course (both units put together)? or do i just add the two UMS marks needed (for an A) together e.g. 96 + 54 = 160+ UMS needed for an A?

    Whatever your course is out of in UMS, the A boundary is always 80% of that. For example Maths AS has 3 units all 100 UMS, so out of 300 UMS, you would need 80% which is 240 UMS for an A. 70% for a B and 60% for a C.
