What do your results mean?

Modular or Linear?

Modular qualifications involve units and use UMS.
Linear qualifications involve components and use raw marks only (not UMS). For linear qualifications, you will just receive an overall grade and results will no longer be shown for individual units. Please see your teacher for a more detailed breakdown.
You may have a combination of modular and linear results which may appear confusing. Please contact your teacher or the Exams Office if you are unsure.

Modular Results

Unitised or modular qualifications have to ensure fairness and consistency across years and within subjects. The raw examination marks are converted into a common scale which is known as the uniform mark scale/score (UMS). It gives a fixed scale with common boundaries that are unchanged year on year and is used to make the marks compatible and comparable. The UMS grade boundaries are available on Columbus or the website.
