    So I did the B1, B2 and B3 exams in Yr 10 and am getting my results on Thursday. Ii got an A* in my coursework. I'm fairly sure I got a high A/Low A* in the B1, a B probably in B2 and a low A possibly in the B3. How is the final grade worked out?

    Someone Correct me if I'm wrong, but when I did GCSEs they would add up the UMS of all your modules for bio and the total UMS would determine the grade.
    For example 270/300 UMS = A*

    And the grade boundaries showing such thresholds will be released tomorrow?

    It will depend on your UMS Mark, with each component (including the coursework) being out of 100 UMS.*

    For UMS, 90% is an A*, 80% an A etc.*
