1. Here are my current scores
Post war britain or f964 - 97
Civil war or something like f963 maybe - 71
Bismarck or aids - 45 marks which has previously been 44 ums consistently according to
http://www.ocr.org.uk/i-want-to/conv...-marks-to-ums/
Im on History A

So, if you count all that up i have
212
to reach A which is 320 and what i need for Uni, I would need 108, Ive been told i need to acheive 54 marks on the two essays i do (out of 60) this year to get an A

is it ums or marks?
i got told marks from one teacher and ums from another, ums means id need 95 marks or 48 per paper rather than 54 and 108, can anyone who is doing this help me?!
