    Why are you keep asking if your marks is good enough for a certain grade. No one knows and no one can predict it because this exam is weird. Just wait till they release the boundaries.

    Honestly, you're a moron, you claim to have gotten those high marks which is 93% yet you are not sure whether it's an A*? You're either really stupid or simply lying about what you got seeing as it was 80% for an A* in the November series.
