Please find below the maximum Raw Marks achieved by candidates in each of
the GCE Economics units in Summer 2019. Attached are the Raw to Uniform
Mark boundaries for the GCE Economics, GCE History, GCE Maths and GCE
Further Maths also from Summer 2019.

Β 

It should be noted that the Uniform Mark boundaries will not change for
the lifetime of the specification. However, the Raw Mark boundaries are
set independently each examination series. If you are planning to use
these Raw Mark boundaries to estimate future grades they must be used with
caution as they change.

Dear Damien Campbell,

Thank you for the quick response and for the information you sent. However, I think there may have been some misunderstanding regarding part of the request. When requesting the raw mark to UMS score conversion, I was requesting (for each paper referenced) a document which shows each possible raw mark and the corresponding UMS score, as opposed to just the raw mark grade boundaries. I would be very grateful if such documents could be also be sent.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Joel

Β 

Please find attached the Summer 2019 versions of the raw to ums conversion
tables for GCE Economics, GCE History, GCE Mathematics and GCE Further
Mathematics, as requested.

Β 

For GCE History, I have only included details for option 1 in each unit.
This is because all options use the same table, so only one option is
needed.

Β 

It should be noted that the Uniform Mark boundaries will not change for
the lifetime of the specification. However, the Raw Mark boundaries are
set independently each examination series. If you are planning to use
these Raw Mark boundaries to estimate future grades they must be used with
caution as they are prone to change.

If you require any further information please feel free to make contact.
