    Hi. For international A-Levels, CIE does not issue UMS. We only get a Percentage Uniform Mark and raw marks that are not in accordance with grade thresholds. So if I get 45/75 in an exam, according to the grade thresholds this would be a B. But when I send this to Cambridge(I'm an offerholder and have been told to send UMS if I miss my offer), they'll see it as a C.

    So how do Cambridge view raw marks and PUM? Say I miss my offer in a subject by 4-5 marks, will they have a look at grade thresholds for that subject to consider my performance contextually? Thanks

    They are fully aware of PUMS.

    Okay thank you. So they only take PUMS and not raw marks into account?

    I have no idea, but just send all the information you have if you miss your Offer.
