    not necessarily ... 50/81 could get standardised to 65/81 (UMS) (which would be an A) ... depending on the difficulty of the paper.
    Basically overall an A at AS is 240/300 UMS for all modules added together

    Again, it depends entirely on the particular exam and how everyone did .... I really couldn't say (but I think 60/81 should be enough for an A in that module).

    For the past few series, 50-51 has got you your A on BYB4 - being scaled to 72. 60 will get an A no probs (80 UMS or so, perhaps).

    If you got 51 you'd be looking at 68-74 UMS possibly an A

    55 would almost guarentee it

    Thats really unfair (and quite rude)! Everyone was only trying to work out the grade boundaries for their exam and other people were willing to help - so there wasn't really any need for u to jump in!

    And, I know a lot of people that try to keep track of the marks they think they've got as they go along in exams! Everyone has their own way of taking exams and dealing with the wait for exam results - chill out!
