    I took OCR history A j415 getting 175/184 raw marks (95%) and the three coursework (or exams) I was above the mark needed for A*.
    1- A953 B 50 marks while A* was 47
    2- A954C 75 marks while A* was 65
    3- A954A 50 mark while for an A* 38
    Despite this, my overall grade is a A

    I'm contacting my school to ask about this but was wondering if I was overlooking something or if someone else has had this happen.

    The marks you have are likely UMS marks. The grade boundaries are likely RAW. You need to convert your UMS back to RAW and then look at the boundaries.

    Ocr history was terrible this year so I feel you. Nothing makes sense to me either
