60% UMS (if applicable), not necessarily 60% of the raw marks.

The % varies according to how difficult the paper is.

2016 Edexcel it was 142/200 ie 71% - UMS are not used in GCSE Maths.

2016 AQA was 116/175 ie 67%

2016 OCR was 122/200 ie 61%

The above.

To add, a C in a Foundation paper will require more marks than a C in a Higher paper, due to the lower difficulty of Foundation.

Foundation tier you need more marks to get a C than higher-as higher is harder. To get a C in edexcel last year (higher) I think you only needed 38/100 and 39/100 on the two papers. But this has probably changed due to the new spec...
