The uniform marking percentage is weighted according to the grade (for example A* is between 90% and 100%). So for example, in extended physics, if I get 38/40 in multiple choice, 70/80 in theory and 35/40 in practical, what will be my percentage score?

you add all of the numbers from the numerator and all of the numbers from the denominator. 38+70+35/40+80+40 = 143/160 = 89%.

Normally the grade for A* is way below 90%, it depends on the subject but normally around 80% is already a guaranteed A*

Wait. Does theory have weightage of something like 50%? Also aren't they adjusted to be between 90% and 100%?

Yes, the theory holds 50% since it is 80 marks out of total of 160. Adjustment depends from year to year, you can check the grade thresholds last year to check it out

This is a quick guide on how to convert marks into grades.

The weightage for 2014,2015, and 2016 for all subjects is below. Just find the subject code, session, and component number.

I think there is a slight confusion among us. I was referring to uniform marking (I've modified the question).

Each raw mark for each component has a, not necessarily distinct, corresponding "UMS", or uniform mark. This changes from year to year. Here, the weighting for each component is applied, and the boundaries are as specified within the PDF you linked above.

I think we multiply the mark achieved in paper 2 by 1.5Paper 4 mark multiplied by 1.25Paper 6 is multiplied by 1the total marks are added to get the result out of 200

Hi, I made a web app for converting CAIE raw marks to PUMs. Please refer to my post at https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...8#post89143748
