    what are the UMS grades and when you get your results it it based on them or on your raw mark.. say for example art; to get an A* its 78/80 and converted into UMS thats 108/120 what is your final grade based on?

    Your final grade is based on UMS.

    For AQA (and maybe other boards, I'm not sure)
    60% UMS over all your units is a C (so if you did 4 units and the max UMS [full marks] added up to 200 UMS, a C would be 120)
    70% UMS, again over all units would be a B, 80% an A, 90% an A*

    There's info here

    Hope I understood what you're asking
