    Okay, I've seen many many many people aiming for A*'s and A's on these forums, which implies they are very bright.
    The real question is, Do you think the Grade boundaries will go up for certain subjects or down?
    I'll give you an Insight as to what I think:


    Maths = Stay the same
    English Lan and Lit = Go up a little
    French = Go down (for some reason, they are getting harder)
    Physics= Go down or stay the same
    Chemistry = Stay the same
    Biology = Go up
    R.E = Stay the same

    List your thoughts?
    Which Subject do you think shall go up the most and what do you think may go down?

    It's really impossible to say. Grade boundaries are determined by how well people do as well as how hard the paper is. Until the paper has been sat(and even after really) there can be no reasonable estimate of how the grade boundaries will fluctuate from previous years. Also remember that TSR users represent a small percentage of all students sitting these exams so it's unsafe to make assumptions about how people have done based on the thoughts of TSR users alone. My advice is not to worry about grade boundaries at least until you've sat the exams
