Hi Guys,
I’m a bit confused as to how far I was off certain grades in my exams and was wondering whether or not someone could help me work it out?
Basically, in Business my results show this (I’m AQA btw )

Buss 3: 72b
Buss4: 62c

I have no idea how far I was off an A/B in the first/second as I have no idea how to work it out!

Also says overall I got ‘C 272’ and I also have no idea how far that is off a B?

Thanks for any hep you can give me!

Hey bud, all the grade boundaries are here! There are raw mark to UMS conversion calculators available that you can look up to help you work out how far off you are.

So that's 134 overall.

In A2, you need 140 overall for a B and 160 overall for an A.

But for overall A level you need 280 for a B and 320 for an A.

So you were 8 off a B.

Ah right, so i was 6UMS off a B? And i presume 280 overall for an B which means with 272 i was 8 off a B overall?

Yep that's right. You could try to get your papers remarked for a few extra marks?

I think I'll be getting Buss 3 remarked

I'm going into year 14 anyway because of my year 12 results, so i'm going to resit BUSS2 as i only got a D on that as opposed to an A on Buss1.

So i basically need to make up 8UMS on Buss 2 to get a B, or am i working that out wrong? If i'm not, is there any way i can work out the grade i'll need to get that B?

Sorry for all the questions but i'm a tad confused!

You just need 8 more UMS on any of the papers (Buss 1, 2, 3, or 4) to get a B

What did you get when you first sat Buss 2? You will just need 8 UMS higher than that. In terms of raw marks, you can use this link ( http://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administ...t-marks-to-ums ) to convert raw marks to UMS.

I assume you did AS Business Studies in 2014?

If so, then you got 46/80 raw marks in Buss 2. You would have needed 49/80 to get an extra 8 UMS which would have given you a B overall.
