    Say for OCR Gateway Biology I got 30 out of 75 in one paper and 27/75 in another would you have to add the marks that you got in both papers to give your UMS mark???

    No, you calculate the UMS mark of each paper separately. Do a search for OCR UMS converter and you should find the site where you do it.

    No - for each paper, your raw marks are converted to a UMS Mark. The conversion depends on how hard the paper was and on how people performed on the paper.*

    Ok so if I get a C in both papers and a B in my controlled assessment will I get a C overall?

    It depends on what the weighting of each unit is and on what your overall UMS Mark is.
