1. Would you say this is a solid A in AS Further Maths?
Fp1 - 70
M1 - 60
D1 - 60

190/225 Raw marks

grade boundaries change however has it ever been higher than this?
2. Depends what it is in UMS terms. Wouldn't say it's a 'solid' A

84% in UMS terms is about 252/300 right

Use the UMS converter for your exam board for that exam series and you can find out.

That would definitely get you an A.

However, by TSR standards nope, that isn't a solid A

Knowing exactly how much UMS you got in that exam is more useful than knowing roughly how many marks you need in each exam to get an A, in my opinion.

Also, adding the marks then doing it as a percentage isn't useful - with Edexcel for example, the grade boundaries are quite high for D1 so you're probably not going to get as much as 84% of 300, depending on what FP1 and M1 are like.

I don't know the answer to your question (if no one does, you can have a look at grade boundaries for all of the years and work it out for yourself) but I'm not sure how useful it is anyway.

Just do the best you can and worry about results later.

In January 2012 for Edexcel, that would have got you 226 UMS, so a middling B.

where are you calculating the ums

As SeanFM mentioned above, use the UMS converter

That's cunning. I was just estimating from the grade boundaries. I've done you out of a mark on FP1, it should be 227.

This was particularly high boundaries on FP1. I remember that my students who took this exam were very scared the day before the results, when we read the grade boundaries. In fact 7 out of the 9 got 90 UMS or more.
