# OCR Mathematics UMS watch

1. So I did a OCR Core 2 June 2006 paper and got 68/72.
53 is required for an A
45 is required for a B

How many marks would you need for 100 UMS, and how do you work this out?

Thanks

The grade boundaries aren't there for June 2006. I know the grade boundaries from a separate source, which doesn't say for 100 UMS.

Surely in maths 100 UMS can't only be achieved by 100%

I know some girl who thought she got full marks on Core 3 last year cause she got 100 UMS but it turned out she got 71/72

Really depends how hard the exam was that year/ how well everyone did. I've had maths exams in which anything from 93%-100% raw marks is 100UMS

What I am basically saying is how to work out the boundary for 100 UMS.

53 is an A
72-53 = 19

Therefore, 19 marks make up 20 UMS in the A bracket.
So 1 mark = 1.05 UMS
That gives me a UMS of 96 since I got 68/72, which is 15 marks above boundary, 80+ 15(1.05.... =96
