    Your coursework mark equates to a certain amount of UMS marks. The whole course is out of 300 UMS and for an A* you need 270/300. You just find out your coursework UMS mark, subtract it from the boundary and the amount of UMS left is the amount of marks you need in the exam.

    Wow thanks, i never actually understood what UMS was until now haha. So is the coursework unit 1 or unit 3, because in the 2015 grade boundaries it was 54 /80 for an a* so was that coursework or language
