I'm unsure how to convert raw marks which were provided by my college into UMS marks which can be interpreted by the grade boundary table released by AQA. My college careers advisory was unable to help. I attempted to use the converter provided by AQA, but the results seemed inaccurate, as it stated I was effectively at the top of the bracket for two of my results.

I'm just trying to see how close I was to an A grade, any feedback is much appreciated.

These were my `raw marks` if that is of any help (AQA EXAM BOARD)
LAW UNIT 1 (JUL 2017) - 79/100
LAW UNIT 2 (JUL 2018) - 89/0 (I'm not sure why it is provided as `/0`, but this is what appears on my college results page)
LAW UNIT 3 (JUL 2018) - 77/0
LAW UNIT 4 (JUL 2018) - 64/0

If there is nobody able to help, I'll attempt to contact AQA, thanks in advance to any feedback!

Hi

Is this one of the new linear A-levels? If so, the marks you have are not quite the same as UMS, and the grade boundaries are "notional" meaning that your raw marks may not add up to the exact grade you have achieved.

You can get more information on this from AQA's website here:
