Dear Joel

 

Please find attached the Raw to Uniform Mark boundaries and full Raw to
UMS conversion tables for Revised spec GCE History (Summer 2017, Summer
2018), as requested.

 

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.

 

Regards
