Following the marking of scripts, an awarding committee for each of CCEAs specifications will review the quality of the work and the statistical and technical evidence for each unit. They will decide where to set the raw mark grade boundary for that unit. Examination papers can vary slightly in difficulty and so raw mark grade boundaries may change from series to series. Uniform mark grade boundaries are fixed, that is, they do not change from series to series.

Your Provisional Statement of Results will show both the 'raw' and the 'uniform' marks.
