    Do UMS divided by marks, so for example:

    60 Marks = 90 UMS
    90/60 = 1.5

    Then multiply 1.5 by your marks

    i think you can search (the exam board) grade boundaries (qualification) 2016 and it shows you raw grade boundaries and ums grade boundaries of with you can then do ums/raw mark and multiply your raw mark by that number. I'm sorry if this doesn't work though.

    It doesn't work like that.

    The marks you are given on your results sheet are always UMS but linear qualifications (e.g. GCSE maths, new spec AS Computer Science) don't have UMS and just give a grade. You teacher can tell you what marks you scored.
