    Hi,
    In Psychology last year, I really struggled with the essays and A02 points. I think I was still in 'GCSE' mode so, yeah I got two Ds and an E which came out at an E for AS. In A2, I resat the exam in which I got an E and got a B. In my January exam, I got an A. I was predicted a B in coursework and I have absolutely no idea what I just got in my June exam. If I had to guess, I would say a C, hopefully a B but I just panicked so I don't think I've done too well.
    Could anyone kindly give me an idea of what average mark I should expect? And when we get our results, are we just given the final results or the June results and then we have to average them? Thanks alot! :p:

    This would be a lot easier if you could give us what UMS marks you got, rather than the grades...

    I got confuzzled with all the letters :p:, but no-one will be able to tell you unless they know the UMS points and even then no-one knows what grades you got in the recent exams. Anything given will be pure speculation.

    Ah right, sorry I only know the grades. I thought you could maybe work it out from the grades.

    Nah it depends how high/low the grades were, and the weighting of the modules. Say, if you got an A in a 120 point module, and an E in a 90.. or the other way around, it makes a difference. :yep:

    At best, a B (76%) (assuming that each module is equally weighted, that you got the highest possible UMS for each grade and that you got a B in June) - assuming the worst (lowest UMS for each grade and a C in June) a mid-C (63%).
