Seems.. unfair somehow that the 3U kids get to be rounded up, whereas we don't. So then a 3U student who got 97 gets the same mark of 49 as a 3U student who got 98?
well UAC scales the marks based on the raw marks, the aligning is only there to make them look good.

Oh, okay. All makes sense now. Thanks gaoOO and jah_lu for clearing that up.

He does anyone know what the aligned mark for a 78 would be?

anyways the rounding works both ways
using my example 96_97 would give you 97 for 3/4u people
but 48/50 (96) for 2/3u
