    Hi,
    I was just wondering how I can use my results to see where I scored in terms of grade boundaries? Like I know the paper doesn't give you the actual marks like the grade boundaries want, but can you use the mark equivalent to do that instead even though it doesn't add up?
    Hope that makes sense!
    Thanks

    The "Mark Equiv." is your UMS mark. So you need to look on the grade boundary sheet for the UMS mark you got, although this will really only tell you what you already know (because those grade boundary sheets don't have every single mark listed with UMS, only the grade boundaries).

    Some exam boards offer a marks-to-UMS converter, like WJEC. Even though their site is annoying to use, it gives you the UMS value for every single grade. I believe AQA also offers such a converter, and probably the other exam boards too.
