    I so don't understand the raw to UMS conversion, even after reading the PDF file on AQA's website (meant for teachers, but meh).
    they base the UMS according to how well the population did in the particular modules. In most of the papers you would need around 65-75% to get the minimum A UMS mark. It will vary every year according to how well the everyone else did. This will make sure it follows a normal distribution/bell shaped curve centred around the average raw mark (anyone who does maths stats should know what this means).
