 Convert your marks 

This page provides a link to download our mark converter and information on how you can use it to calculate your raw mark from the UMS mark printed on your results slip.


When you get your results slip, you may find that your ‘final mark’ is different from the score on your exam paper – the so-called ‘raw mark’. This is because the majority of our results are all published in UMS marks.

  • A level
  • International A level
  • CiDA from 2012

If you don't have Excel 2007 or above, or require a raw mark for a different qualification, the exams officer at your school or college will be able to provide this information.
