    No I don't agree with C2 having a vet high grade boundary. Higher than last year obviously but the hard questions at the end will have stumped people. I'd say 63 for an A. It could potentially be 65 IF the mark scheme is kinder this year (ie. Giving out method marks galore) but not higher.
    You only have to look at the number of private school students who probably most of have understood the last question. They represent at least 10% for academic subjects like A Level Maths, and so being at the top end of the Mark spectrum they will decide who gets the As.

    That's obviously plain wrong edexcel will be midnight based off the last 2 years and the rest may or may not be leaked? So no one really knows now do they?

    Under-promise and over-deliver? I'm pretty sure they were up earlier than that last year.

    Trust me, private schools don't have THAT much of an effect on grade boundaries. At mine, only like five of us understood the last question. The exam itself was on par with the June 2013 paper for me, maybe just slightly easier and that was 62 for an A. And plus, if that were the case, C1 would always have very high grade boundaries (the UMS ready reckoner on TSR showed that the modal mark in C1 last year was 75, yet it was 63 for an A.) so if anything the public schools will drag the boundary lower than whatever the performance at private schools is

    Looks like the list of past grade boundaries for A-level has disappeared for Edexcel?

    I still get the same thing. Other qualifications (e.g. GCSEs) work so they've probably removed the list while they update it

    It's because they've changed it, instead of A Level the step 1 part is now AS and A Level. So click the change button on step 1 and choose the AS and A Level option and you should be able to get them.

    Weird for them to do it at this time of night. I thought it was all automated!

    C3 and C4 seem spot on. Resitting these two, hoping for 190+/200 to get my A*.

    spaces would help tbh, I think 55 and 54 are honestly too low for A boundaries, let's see
