I had a psychology exam which i messed up so bad and didnt finish it because i was slow as ever. Based on what i answered max i can get is a C.
So if i get a C so 60%, 36/60 on this paper and try to aim for high grades then what will my rough predicted grade be?:
PY1= C, 60%, 36/60 (worth 20%)
PY2= A 90% 65/72 (worth 30%)
PY3= A 90% 72/80 (worth 20%)
PY4= A 90% 90/100 (worth 30%)?
Basically since i messed up on unit 1 what percentages and grades do i need on the others to get an A and A* (please give percentage and grades for each unit anf say what total will be now that ive messed one paper up)
What's my predicted average grade using these results? watch

Which exam board is this?
You need to find the exam board's UMS convertor (just google "[exam board] ums convertor")
For UMS 80% is always an A, 70% a B, 60% a C etc etc. So find out what the full ums is (e.g for AQA a level science it's 600), then work out what UMS you need to get (using that AQA example, you need to get 540+ for A*, 480+ for an A).
With the convertor type in your raw mark and that gives you the UMS. You can fiddle with it using what you expect to get, then add all those UMS points up and see what it makes
IDK how they work out UMS, black magic or something, but there you go!
