    Hi,so yesterday I got a C grade which I kind of expected but also had hopes for a B. Anyway so I look at the mark and it says 65/120. I then look at the edexcel/pearson grade boundaries and it shows both papers separately and if added together the boundary for a B is 63/116 with a C grade 52/116. As its the new spec there is no UMS so I'm really struggling to see what my 65 mark actually means and how close I'm to a B. Anyone else done Pearson English Lit and understands there mark?

    I've attempted to calculate it by dividing 120 by 116 (which I'm not 100% certain is the right thing to do), which roughly gave a scale of 1.04 which then if you multiply by 63, rounds up to 66, which would make you one mark off of a B! But as I previously stated, I'm not 100% this is the correct method to work it out!

    Yeah you were right, unfortunately
