    The Raw Marks to UMS conversion change every year and also depend on the exam board. What exam board are you doing and do you want to know for a specific year or on average?

    For the controlled assessment unit, A* is always 44/50 for Bio, Chem and Physics. For the exam units for each science, the grade boundaries are HIGHLY variable. They tend to be on average 50/60 for A*, with Physics tending to be lower than Biology and Chemistry, but they change a lot depending on how hard the exam was. It can be as lot as 45/60 and as high as 53/60.
