    So after crying for 15 minutes I decided to compare my grades to the grade boundaries, I did AQA English Literature and the grade boundaries say that you needed 53/68 to get an A* on the exam I did, but i got a B on that exam and got 58 marks?? and for AQA language i got 104 and and none of the grade boundaries for english language go past 90??

    am i reading the wrong thing or am i so stupid that i cant even read numbers??

    You're reading the UMS marks not your actual marks.

    Sorry that you've been crying. Unfortunately, the mark on your results sheet is the UMS mark whereas your looking at the raw mark boundaries. It's a common mistake that people make - not just you.
