    Each module is 75 marks, right? So that's a total of 225...how many raw marks do you need to get for an A? (Or...how do you convert them to UMS?)

    When converted to UMS each module is worth 100 marks and its always 80 for an A, so 240/300
    You cant work it out for raw marks because the grade boundaries vary for each paper and each sitting.

    But how do you convert to UMS? I know you can't do it with raw marks, but I just want to have a general idea...for instance, would 190/225 be an A?! I have no idea...

    In January 2001 the mappings were as follows:

    Module 80 70 60 50 40 30
    Pure Mathematics P1 62 53 45 37 29 21
    Mechanics M1 67 59 51 43 36 29
    Statistics S1 58 51 44 37 31 25
    Decision Maths D1 63 56 49 42 35 28

    (In each row the first number is for an A, the next a B and so on)
    As you can see it varies a lot for each module

    Hmm normally its 60-ish out of 75 raw marks for an A so about 180/225 would probably get you an A in AS Maths...but its the total UMS marks that determine your grade.
