    Well yeah it was a bit hard....but not so hard that the marks for an A should be at 65% :eek3: . I knew i got around 6,7 marks wrong :/ . I guess this is the lowest boundary ever! You rarely see such low A boundary for maths units!!!

    yeah. I guess it means how much out of the exam marks (90/75/100) was needed to get a UMS of 80%

    My maths teacher said it was the hardest M1 paper he's ever seen, the people who retook it did not look happy walking out of the exam

    There are few missing in that list. For e.g. the Accounting international units...the grade boundaries are not in that list.

    The list is quite confusing though, scroll down well

    What I am surprised about is that, especially with these low grade boundaries, someone at my school managed to get 2/100 on M1 :s

    Yeah so you did the exam out of 100 and the marks which you got from your school is most likely the UMS which will be out of 120. Why confused?

    yes i am surprised. I saw that the night before results came out which made me relieved somewhat as it was such a hard paper.

    I got 81/100 for it, so just an A, but in a normal year that would have been a C, and I know i didn't do well on the paper so I kind of think i don't deserve the A
    anyone else feeling like this?

    Ouch, did you really mess it up? :sad: or was the exam good, but the result unexpected?

    then again if you look at the table... the gap between A and B is very low (7)..B and C (7)..

    That could be a reason. Maybe you did your exam at a B level or low A level and got a C for the boundaries.

    Someone correct me if i am wrong, the low A boundary only helped those who got above the A level. It actually pushed those below an A further down...

    so if i got 90/120 that equates too 75/100 raw score.

    it says i need 74 for an a.... but on the thing it said i got a b?..

    am i missing something?
