    I did the Edexcel Higher GCSE for German this year and was wondering what UMS I would achieve with these marks for Speaking and Writing. I got 57/60 in Writing as a raw mark. I got 55/60 in Speaking as a raw mark. Would that get me 90 UMS in both Speaking and Writing? So a total of 180. Of course this is excluding the UMS for Listening and Reading...

    It would be just under full UMS, probably 87 and 84

    In fact, on the Edexcel website, there is a raw mark to UMS converter for every GCSE course .... Have a look on that

    For my mocks back in January, my teacher used our best Controlled Assessmemt marks to give us a grade. I got 56/60 Raw Mark in Speakimg and 59/60 Raw Mark in Writing. These are the ones she is sending to the exam board because they were my best 4. She gave that as 90 UMS in both Speaking and Writing. Was she right to do this? She said you don't "necessarily" need 60/60 Raw Mark to get 90 UMS.
