    Firstly, is this Core, Additional or Triple? Also, is this 21st C science?

    Give me the weighting of each component of the GCSE along with the total number of UMS marks in the GCSE

    Usually it's 25% for each component.

    And you'd need 80% UMS overall do get an A.

    So if it was out of 400 UMS, you'd need 320 UMS marks. If it was 600, you'd need 480 and so on...

    If you had 3Bs and 1A you would get a B overall (Assuming the 3 exams and 1 coursework piece all have equal weightings).

    Okay so the ums overall is out of 400 and I am thinking that I will get one high b and the two other bs will not be too high but not very low either like in middle. Also, I got a low a in my coursework.

    Any idea what mark the low A was? I'll assume it to be 82 marks, for now

    Which means you'd need 79.333... UMS marks in your other 3 exams to get an A. That's the equivalent to 3 really high Bs. So I'm afraid you may have gotten a B overall.

    Here is the ums converter from last year boundries you may find out if you have a chance to get an A:http://www.ocr.org.uk/i-want-to/conv...-marks-to-ums/.Normally you need 320/400 80% ums marks.
