Because they don’t do grade boundaries for the separate papers. They only do it for all the papers together and as a percentage

yeah but if there's three exams of 100 marks then the total would be 300. also none with that, makes no sense

Yhh but they can’t do it as marks since the three papers are worth different percentages.
Paper one and two is 35%
Paper 3 is 30%
So even though it says max mark of 335 it’s because they make it seem as if paper one and two have 17.5 more marks which is the extra 5%.
Basically paper one and two are 117.5 marks
Paper one is 100
They have to do it this way because of the percentage difference and them being required to write it in the form of a raw mark
