I know I'm posting a lot, I'm sorry. So I did AQA French, and got an A overall, BUT it's 60% coursework and 40% exam (unit 1 and 2 are exams, 20% each, 3 and 4 are coursework, 30% each). In units 2,3 and 4 I got A*s in all, but in unit 1 I got a B, but shouldnt 3 A*s and a B make an A* overall?? If I'm right then how can I challenge this?

An A* has the numerical value of 8.
A B has the numerical value of 6.
An A has the numerical value of 7.

So 20% of 6 plus 80% of 8 is 7.6

But if you're overall UMS score is only a few UMS from an A* you should probably think about a remark

It's all to do with the amount of UMS marks you got. Does your result slip provide the UMS marks?

What is the overall grade boundary (can't find it?) My UMS marks were:
Unit 1: 44 UMS/21 Raw (B, 2 off an A)
Unit 2: 54 UMS/32 Raw (Borderline A*)
Unit 3: 81 UMS/55 Raw (Borderline A*)
Unit 4: 86 UMS/58 Raw (A*)

You need 270/300 UMS for an A* and 240 for an A. You got 265 so you were very close

Damn. Right OK, thank you, do you know what that is in raw marks by any chance?
