The Uniform Mark boundaries will not change for the lifetime of this specification. 
Please       The Raw Mark boundaries will be set independently in each examination series. 
note:
If you are planning to use these Raw Mark boundaries to estimate future performance and grades they must 
be used with caution as they are prone to change each series.

A* grade will be awarded to candidates who have met both of the following criteria:
1.
gain an A grade overall at A level (240+ UMS out of 300 UMS); and
Awarding A*:
gain 90%, or more, of the maximum UMS on the combined totals of their A2 units (162+ UMS 
2.
out of 180 UMS).
A* will be awarded at A level cash-in only.  It is not awarded at AS cash-in or for individual units.
