    Your sheet has your UMS mark not your raw Mark. The grade boundaries display the raw marks, if you use Aqa's UMS converter for 71 UMS you'll see your raw Mark and why you obtained that grade

    No I scored a c in my coursework and a E in the exam which apparently a 71 is an E when clearly it's not!

    As you can see with what I've attached, 71 UMS marks is an E grade I'm afraid. As I have stated, you're looking at the raw mark boundaries when your sheet contains UMS boundaries.

    71 ums is an E, which is what is on your sheet. You're looking at raw mark boundaries, when your sheet shows ums marks.
