What were your best and worst UMS marks? Did you get higher marks than you expected or some unexpectedly low scores?

Had a weird results. For my Stats 1 exam i thought i had really screwed it up and got a bad mark. Came out of the exam thinkin about resits. However, apparently got 100/100. I am still in shock.

Best out of the exams I sat this year: 114/120
Worst: 33/100 (I expected not to do well in that anyway)

I was shocked to see 41/90 for my French oral result, lots of other people had low marks for that too :/.

I purposely hashed up General Studies in January and got

Paper 1: 3/100
Paper 2: 4/100
Paper 3: 5/100

12/300 is pretty damn piss poor.

On a warmer note though, in AQA A-Level Business Studies I got 571/600... a whole 91 UMS points over an A.

Paper 1 (AS): 90/90
Paper 2 (AS): 86/90
Paper 3 (AS): 104/120
Paper 4 (A2): 90/90
Paper 5 (A2): 90/90
Paper 6 (A2): 111/120

There should be an award for this kind of thing

Mind you, no doubt someone got 600/600 for this subject

It doesn't work like that. It is possible to get 100% UMS marks even if you only manage to get 80% of the raw marks.

You're right. For example, someone who gets 85% on a paper and scores 100/100 on the UMS would get the same UMS score as someone who scored full raw marks, i.e 100%. A little unfair perhaps, but anyone getting full UMS marks should be commended on their excellent achievement, regardless of what number of raw marks they score.

Heh, unlucky . It was the A2 oral that I got a low mark in. For the AS one, I got 86/90. I was glad that mark didn't stop me getting an A though .

(bloody hell - essays I tell you! I haven't written an essay in two years.Go Bridges!!)

Worst Society/Politics/Economics 76/120 God I hated those topics *snore*

I guess they need the UMS system but its still annoying because i know full well that i didn't get full marks on any of those papers so it'd be nice to know our raw marks too. though i guess if they told us those and people started looking at how they are changed it'd just kick off another media whatsit.

Why do they have to change our marks to fit the boundaries - couldn't they just shift the grade boundaries each year to fit the papers instead and then noone would be able to complain about people's marks being changed in any way?
