Confused on UMS/Raw/Grade boundariesWatch this thread
These are my results so far
G481 PHYSICS: MECHANICS B 67 UMS B
G482 PHYSICS: ELECTRONS, WAVES & PHOTONS 111 UMS B
G485 PHYSICS: FIELDS, PARTICLES & FRNTRS 105 UMS B
G483 PHYSICS: PRCTCL SKILLS IN PHYSICS 1 42 UMS B
G486 PHYSICS: PRCTCL SKILLS IN PHYSICS 2 36 UMS C
Now tell me If I'm doing this correctly.
My UMS points add up to 361
I need 420 to get a B, I still need to take Newtonian World
This means I need to score 59 UMS points on Newtonian World
How many raw marks exactly is 59 UMS points? Is that something the 'grade boundary' dictates? So there is no way of knowing exactly how many raw marks I need to get 59 UMS points?
That is based on the OCR Grade Boundaries for past papers (e.g at http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/16472-u...-june-2012.pdf) but it changes slightly each year, depending on how well students get on in the exam.
Also remember you don't want to be scraping just 36 raw marks, you need to get as many marks as possible so you don't end up missing out with 419 UMS overall.
