GCSE UNIT RESULTS All unitised GCSE schemes use a nationally agreed uniform mark scale (UMS) to report the result of each unit and subject awards. The maximum uniform mark for a subject depends upon the total number of units contributing to the qualification and the maximum uniform mark for a unit depends upon the importance (weighting) of the unit within the qualification. There are a number of separate UMS, each with a different maximum unit mark. The maximum uniform mark for each unit is given below. The minimum uniform mark required for each grade of a Unit Result for each UMS are:

Maximum Uniform Mark of 20 Maximum Uniform Mark of 40 Maximum Uniform Mark of 50 Maximum Uniform Mark of 60 Maximum Uniform Mark of 70 Maximum Uniform Mark of 80 Maximum Uniform Mark of 90 Maximum Uniform Mark of 100 Maximum Uniform Mark of 120 Maximum Uniform Mark of 160 Maximum Uniform Mark of 180 Maximum Uniform Mark of 200

The maximum UMS for the foundation tier is set at one mark below the minimum UMS required for grade b. In a foundation tier unit targeted at grades c – g, the maximum uniform mark available will be equivalent to a top grade c. Unit results below the minimum judged by WJEC to be of sufficient standard will receive an unclassified (u) notional grade. Candidates who narrowly fail to achieve grade d on the higher tier will be awarded grade e. Unclassified results (u) will be issued to candidates in higher tier units who fail to reach the standard for the award of grade e.
