    That genuinely made me feel kinda ill having to look at that paper again! I dropped like 24 marks.. I've never done so badly in an exam before! Who knows, that might end up being a low b.. hopefully! Still incredibly annoying though, since I was aiming for 95ums+

    Hmm thanks Ashton for the paper

    Hated it. Worst paper ever and ironically, core 2 was the one I prepared for the most

    Got 87 in C1 and defo at least 90 in M1..

    I think i only got about 41 in this paper... is that enough for the 60 ums I need to get an A overall??

    Would say 58 as its inbetween the crazy last exams boundary of 54 and also aroundabout the normal average of 60- but a bit lower cus it was quite challenging

    Personally I reckon I got around 57/58
    Plus mate Im sure 60 would be a really high b anyways so longs as you did ok in your optional module you will be fine ( 60 is very likely to be an A)

    My optional was decision and I reckon I got around 60/61 there
    Maybe just have to accept the high B whereas im sure your in a better situation

    Thats a good plan actually might retake it myself if I don't get an A cus really for all the work I put in I should be getting an A tbh anything else would just put too much pressure on the already hard : C3 and C4 and M1 which I may do also

    Thanks and good luck to you also

    Thinking logically, and by the sounds of most of the posts in this thread, the boundaries should be less than or equal to 54.

    If they aren't, then it's just complete bull****, really.

    Has anyone had a chance to look at the grade boundaries yet? It's 51 raw marks to get an A and 46 to get a B. I found it here: http://store.aqa.org.uk/over/stat_pd...-JUNE-2012.PDF

    It seems quite reasonable considering how hard the exam was. Now fingers crossed for tomorrow :crossedf: Good luck everyone
