    So I got 72 (B) on BUSS3 and 86 (A) on BUSS4 at A2 on the aqa exams. My total UMS is 316.
    I believe 320 is an A and 280 is a B. So I could drop 36 marks before I drop to a C if I get BUSS3 remarked - hoping this is very unlikely.
    I need 4 UMS from the remark which costs £50 as its a 'priority remark'.
    From anyone's experience or general opinions, do you reckon 4 UMS is realistic to get an A overall in Business Studies?

    It's definitely possible, but it's not probable. How desperately do you want to A grade?

    Pretty bad. Got ABC which I'm very disappointed with. Maybe it's just me but AAC sounds so much better haha. I looked at the UMS convertor, and it comes out as 2 raw marks I believe.Also is there something new about how they are remarked this year?
