Hi, I need help.
Basically on my exam results i have been given the RAW marks for my R.E grade.
Im trying to work out how many marks away i am, from the next grade up.
However when i go on the AQA Grade boundaries (June 2016) it hasnt got raw marks and i dont understand because the AQA grade boundaries says the max mark is 90 but in raw marks its actually 100.
GCE Religious Studies Unit 1: 95 (A)
GCE Religious Studies Unit 3: 63 (C)

I do believe you've made a mistake in thinking your marks are raw, they are UMS as far as I can see, which would mean you have the normal ums boundaries for each paper. This is because the maximum mark in your papers was 90 raw, and 100 ums. The boundaries for ums are as follows:

90/100 for an A* (No A* is given at AS Level)
80/100 for an A
70/100 for a B
60/100 for a C
50/100 for a D
40/100 for a E
<40/100 is a U.

So your total will be out of 200 as you have 2 papers you have sat, which means you'll double the boundary and find that 160/200 would have been an A, so sadly you were 2ums marks away from that A grade.

In your 1st paper you did really well achieving 82/90 raw marks and in your second you achieved 43/90, you'd need to gain 2 marks to be able to have an A, if you're unsure how I worked this out, have a look at the AQA UMS converter, hopefully I helped! To clarify your 43/90 even if it became 44/90 you'd still only be on 159 so it'd need to be 45+/90 fot your A grade, and your other paper would also need to become 84/90 for an A grade, though if you do wish to remark I would personally remark ths 43/90, but speak to your teacher first! Good luck.

Are you sure that the raw mark you are talking about isn't the UMS. In which case it would be out of 100 but the grade boundaries are in raw marks and you need the UMS converter from aqa.
