    The whole thing is out of 300 UMS. You need.....
    270/300 for an A*
    240/300 for an A
    210/300 for a B
    180/300 for a C
    150/300 for a D
    120/300 for an E
    90/300 for an F

    You got 70/80 which would be 105 UMS. You would need...
    165 UMS for an A* which would be 58/80 on the exam
    135 UMS for an A which would be 48/80 on the exam
    105 UMS for a B which would be 40/80 on the exam
    75 UMS for a C which would be 30/80 on the exam

    but on the grade boundary sheet it says that if you get lower than 35 then it's a U so how does that make sense. How do I getting 30 in the exam gets me a C overall?

    Your overall grade is calculated by the UMS you got in your coursework and in your exam. You only need 180 UMS out of the 300 available for a C. You got 105 in your coursework so therefore you'll only need 75 UMS for a C. 75 UMS is equal to 30/80 in the exam.
