    Hi, I did AQA maths which was modular and I'm carrying it on for A level but I don't understand how to put it down in the SAQ. Do I put it as UMS maths along with my other subjects which are linear or do I just put it down in the section where you put your actual UMS marks in for whichever modular AS/A levels you have done?

    Thanks

    UMS is the uniform marks (ie not the raw marks)

    If you did modular exams, then each unit was marked individually - those were the raw marks- they then scale these up or down depending on that year's exam difficulty then you get UMS marks

    It should say it on your results
