    I'm trying to fill out my UCAS application, and have a problem in the Education section. When I add an A-Level, it asks me for my grades, giving me the option of choosing any grade from A-U. I did my A-Levels a few years ago, and only have the marks for individual units, not grades. What should I therefore fill in for the grades. I'm also not sure what mark each unit is marked out of (I know some are 100, some 90 and some 120, just not sure which is which).
    Thanks for your help.

    If i put the marks in the box to the right, what do i put as my grades? Do i leave it as pending or make something up. At the end of the day is it then better to put my mark or estimate what grade each mark was and then use this estimated grade?

    you cannot put the mark and the grade so if you put the mark you don't need to put the grade . . as too which one is better well if you an A in everything but low A then its better to put the grade but if you got B but just missed the A then its better to put the unit mark . . at least that is what i would think makes sense

    Edexcel and AQA. These exams are from about three or four years ago and so will the grade boundaries be the same for those?

    Unfortunatly it doesn't let you put pending if you are no longer at the institution
    I left college in August, but am resitting a module, but it wont let me put pending! I've had to put that I am still at the college, but I'm not sure if that is right!
    I would suggest going back to your old school/college and ask them...thats what I'm doing
