    Well we don't know the boundaries yet. However, they're the same (in terms of UMS) each year.

    For OCR Higher Tier (what I do):

    86% = A*
    76% = A
    66% = B
    56% = C
    46% = D

    It all depends on how the UMS system works, which varies A LOT each year.

    Hmm. I hope you're right.

    Last year, my school told us the boundaries (for OCR higher) were:
    93% = A*
    83% = A
    73% = B
    63% = C

    - This I thought was ridicolously high. I'm not sure if they're trying to scare us.. they probably were, I found those quite hard to believe. I mean, someone getting 72% would get a C. That's just ridicolous.

    Deipnosophist123 was right. The UMS needed isn't even as high as your saying. In English Literature apparently only 6% of people get an A*. I think Deipnosophist123 is talking about English language anyway. For English Literature I think the grade boundaries are even lower.

    I was talking about Language, yeah. The boundaries are much higher (a typo on your part?) in Literature, irritatingly so. 90% UMS for the A*

    Well on the coursework grade sheet for language and literature, it said that 90% (54/60) was A* because i got 54,54,53 and the 53 was an A lol :P

    right this is what it was for AQA coursework:
    93% = A*
    83% = A
    73% = B
    63% = C

    but for the exam its usually lower, though 3 years ago the boundaries were as above... so for the actual exam i reckon as follows:

    85% - A*
    75% - A
    65% - B
    55% - C

    I am guessing for AQA it will be
    40%-C
    60%-B
    80%-A
    90%-A*

    As far as the WJEC goes, English Language has quite high boundaries, suffocating in fact

    A* - 88%

    C - about 55%
