    That is your UMS marks, you need to convert it to raw marks.

    I think the scale is in the examiners' report: http://www.edexcel.org.uk/VirtualCon...7_UG020309.pdf

    At the end.

    U can never really be sure, as UMS conversion changes per subject, but you probably got 188 marks out of 200. Not exactly sure though

    It's out of 480 not 490.
    480/200 = 2.4
    450/2.4 = 187.5
    All I can say is that it's ironic you are asking this, considering the subject in question.

    Yes it was possible weeks ago, yet they stop the method from working.

    It doesn't add on the modules from AS...well that's what happened at our college anyway, except with one guy as he did Further Maths. Our teachers went through and wrote the other modules and the overall total in pencil on the results slip before we got them to avoid confusion. But the head of A Levels was saying about how there was a big problem with the Edexcel A2 maths results this year, however I thought it was just our college.

    Ahhh very sorry! When it comes up on the side "Recent Threads", I keep forgetting to look which forum it's in, and as you had the exact same problem as my school with not all of the modules turning up, I assumed it was A Levels! Sorry about that, although I'm sure somebody would be able to find the papers for you. There's some search string you type into google to access the hidden pages, but I'm not sure what that is.
