    I've just received my GCSE results after being on holiday and want to find out how far I was from some grade boundaries however, I don't understand how I find out my raw marks?
    On my letter it shows me my 'mark equiv' and 'points' ... How do I find out my raw marks?

    For the exams that you did with AQA, you can go to this link here: http://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administ.../ums-converter and find your exam in the drop down list. When it asks you to enter your raw mark, just put in a random low number. It'll then give you a chart of raw marks compared to UMS points, and you can just move your mouse around the chart until you get to your UMS, and it'll tell you what raw mark that equates to. It also has the grade boundaries on there!
    Sorry if that was super confusing...there's probably a quicker way but that's how I do it!

    Your results are always shown in UMS and the UMS grade boundaries are the same for every subject and every exam.
    90% or more - A*
    80-89% - A
    70-79% - B
    etc
    You just need to know what each exam and unit was out of and that's on the exam board websites.
