will 60 raw marks be 80UMS and what about 56raw marks ?
How the hell do we know what you'll get??
Can you not wait till results day...since you've asked, 80 UMS will be roughly 64-66 raw marks, so you should get a low-mid B...56 raw marks will probably be a high C

It was slightly easier if not the same as the june 2011 paper...that was 65 for an A; I reckon it will be 65 or higher, but I'm obviously hoping for low boundaries

This paper was very easy indeed . Boundary predictions are:
75- 100ums
72- 90ums
69- 80ums
etc
This doesn't shows that you are hoping for low boundaries.

apparently the c2 paper was very easy (I didn't sit it), so 70 raw marks will be close to 90 ums. Well done

I sat it as well, found it quite weird, but the techniques were the same as past papers...so expecting average boundaries, similar to June 2011.

Oh God just seen the grade boundaries
20. Re: C3 June 2012 - Post Exam Thread - Solutions and Paper in the FIRST POST
Not a fan of these grade boundaries at all. But I think I did well in C4 so maybe I'll still get an A.
