1. Hi! Im currently doing CIE AS Psychology. I just checked the grades threshold and I see theres an error. Or its just that I dont understand.

http://www.cie.org.uk/images/283918-...er-2015.pdfWhy is it said on the page the maximum total mark for AS Level is 100? but total of both papers are actually over 150? (Paper 1 80 and Paper 2 70)

Whilst I am not familiar with it and it does look confusing, I would say the 70 and 80 are raw marks, and for example if you took option AX then you'd need 147 marks for an A*, which I presume is 180/200 in terms of results (if those are A2 modules..)
3. hi everyone. jic anyone else is wondering too, Ive figured it out.
According to the grades threshold Ive linked above, to get a B it has said 51/100 = 51% (for 12, 22)
I tried to total up both papers
so the breakdown to get a B: P12: 33/80
P22: 47/70
(33 + 47) divide by 150 x 100 = 51%
so basically, the grades threshold shows overall in percentage
