    For edexcel I sat both AS and A2 maths in one year. Across all six modules there's a total of 450 raw marks and a total of 600 UMS. I understand that you need 480 UMS to get an A.

    My question is how many raw marks do you roughly need out of 450 to get an A (which is equivalent to 480 UMS)?

    Changes every year. Depends on how well people do each year. There really is no definite answer. But for an A it isn't too difficult I think you can drop quite a lot of marks.

    This is the way I felt about my exams

    C1 - Literally destroyed it, 69-70 marks out of 75 (from unofficial mark scheme)
    C2 - Destroyed this even more 71 out of 75 (from unofficial mark scheme)
    S1 - This was the toughest S1 paper released but I think I scraped an A due to getting 58-59 marks out of 75 (from unofficial mark scheme)

    C3 - I got 62+ marks out of 75 (from unofficial mark scheme)

    C4 - Didn't do as well as I hoped and I definitely didn't get an A, maybe a high C or scraped a B (more likely)

    S2 - Toughest S2 paper released and I know I didn't get an A on this, maybe scrounged enough marks to get around 50+

    Sorry if I typed all this up but do you think I got an A? I'm really nervous about getting into uni and this matters to me a lot.
