It sounds as though you are in England taking linear A levels. If this is the case then forget you ever heard of the acronym UMS. It applies only to modular qualifications and all GCSEs and A levels in England are now linear. For linear A levels you see the mark you actually scored on the paper.

omg calm down

UMS was a feature of the old specifications, where the raw marks would be scaled to a uniform mark, and the grade boundary was for a fixed UMS - 90 for A*, 80 for A, etc. Now the grade boundaries are decided purely by the raw cumulative mark, and your AS exams don't count towards your final grade.

No. If you're in England then UMS does not apply.
