1. Last year it was only 155/200 for A*.
My teachers say that this years will be 170/200 for an A*. Would Edexcel increase the grade boundary by that amount? In fact, it has been decreasing over the past few years, so it wouldn't make sense for them to increase it at all.

However, this years exam was relatively easier than last years.
This is my first ever post, I don't know if I'm doing this right :|
2. u never know. it shouldnt increase bby that much but wil b in the ranges of 163-168 for a*.. i got around 80 on paper 1 and hopefully only lost about 8 marks on paper. 2 so i wish i can get a*
3. Here have been the grade boundaries for the past few years
4. For June and November 2015 the grade boundaries were 125 and 135 respectively (for an A, that is all i can remember). According to most the tests were easy so don't expect them to be too low. I dont think they will go higher than 139 though. I also know i wont have gotten an A*
5. What do you think an A will be 130ish?

I think an A will be possibly around 132 - 135.

Scraping an A.
9. I hope to scrape an A

Will be disappointed if not

Are you sure?

It's a wild guess.

For an A:
2012 - 128
2013 - 131
2014 - 133
2015 - 125.

Seems about right. The paper was challenging in a generous way.
13. Would around 110 be a B??

Would around 110 be a B??
Yeah I think that would be a safe B, and here's some predicted grade boundaries off of a website I found:

A* - 170
A - 140
B - 110
C - 70
15. But edexcel shouldn't increase the a grade mark by 10 marks, especially if paper one was found to be hard nationwide

Yh the paper/ were harder than 2014 but easier than 2015 so I think 130-132 for an A
