    70 + 80 + 80 = 230, which is a B overall, or 76.6%.

    76.6% would not be a 6. It would be a 7 (A.)

    What do you think it is? With two As and a B, you should be able to figure it out. Answer is in a spoiler.

    B. You need 10 more UMS for an A

    80 UMS is an A,
    70 a B
    So you need an average of 80 across all three exams to get an A. That would he 240 UMS

    roughly ( i know it depends on grade boundaries) what do you think 85 ums would be converted to raw marks out of 72?

    Roughly 85% of 72
    Check on your examiners web site, they may have a ums to raw marks converter
