    So i got my English First Language result last Thursday and i got an A (I'm stressing over nothing seriously).. problem is, I got 81 in total and got an A, but the grade threshold says the min. Mark for A* is 73.. so which is the mistake ?
    Did the examinor mistyped the A or the mark ?

    Looks like one is the % uniform mark i.e where you came against everyone else and the 73 is your UMS. They are different.
