For example the 2015 German grade boundaries were 30 marks for an A which was equal to 48 UMS, and 34 marks for A* which was 54 UMS, does that mean that If I get 33/40 one below an A* i get the same UMS or does it go up?
Thanks a lot!

UMS points go up with marks, check out AQA's UMS converter: http://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administration/about-results/uniform-mark-scale/convert-marks-to-ums
For german (if you do AQA), 33 is 53 UMS, 34 is 54 UMS.

I don't know quite how it works but it's based on the bell curve i.e everyone else's results and how hard the paper was. Sometimes they're out of 100, 60, 80 whatever it tends to change! If you got one below an A* you'd get something like 53 or 52 UMS, it's continuous
