    tarrif points are not UMS marks, they are 2 competely separate things

    UMS marks are what each module we take is marked out of, 6 modules worth of UMS marks are added to give us a total UMS out of a possible 600, and a grade is given based on what this mark is. tarrif points are what a grade is worth to a university. so for example 480 UMS marks would be an A grade. but 120 tarrif points would be what an A is worth

    in response to the original question (sorry lol) you will get the UMS marks for every moduke you've taken for that subject- the ones in bold with be the ones you've taken recently(june 2004). sometimes your school/college can pay to have a grade put on next to the UMS marks- sometimes they make you calculate it yourself. depends how nice the college is

    I think you might get both. I've heard of people getting JUST the grade. I've also, myself, experienced receiving only our UMS marks. And equally, I've heard of people receiving their UMS marks, AND their grades on the sheet. So its like Priya said, depends on how nice your college is. Goodluck mate.

    GOODLUCK EVERYONE !!!

    Not sure about other boards, but with Edexcel you get both. I didn't realise schools and colleges had to pay to get both UMS marks and grades on the slips.
