Reason being the edexcel MS states;

A raw mark of 26 falls within the C range. Surely this cant be what I'm thinking it is.

A raw mark is the amount of marks you got on your paper (in contrast with a UMS mark). For example, one of my Psychology exams was out of 62, but the UMS marks were out of 100, but they didn't correlate exactly... like you needed 63% (39/62) on the paper to get 70% UMS (70/100), or something like that.

The mark you actually got on the paper.

ie, the paper was out of 40 and you got 26. That it a raw mark.

If they decided to make 24 the boundary for an C, then 26 might get you a scaled mark of, say, 64 out of 100.

They turn raw marks into scaled marks to make papers equal.

edit: as above, a UMS mark is a scaled mark.

26 marks out of whatever the maximum is on the paper gives you a grade C. The [brackets] beside each question that give you the number of marks available, are raw marks.

Hi all. Within my cea modular exam for social and environmental studies (opportunities for working life) I got a scaled raw mark of 66. The maximum uniform mark was 100 and the uniform mark was 68. I got a grade 2. What does that mean? Is that equivalent of a C or?
