    This is the problem with coursework, if the moderating is that strict then they need to publish proper guides to marking so we can improve - otherwise it's hard to know how we are supposed to be doing it all properly!

    I read someone saying they thought/conspired that some marks hadn't been scaled to UMS just left raw...then put against the max UMS mark
    so 38/40 -----A
    -----> 38/60 ---- C

    I like this theory

    I cant remember what the raw mark of mine was out of. The Edexcel June 09 grade boundaries PDF is totally impossible to understand. Maybe i'm on the wrong one but i swear none of them seem to be the right max raw etc .

    it's because 3X (EMPA) is externally marked. People do a lot better in internally marked asessments.
