    Does 80 for an A* in unit 4 and 85 for an A* in unit 5 sound about right?
    Spot on, I'd say that +/-1

    Yes and no. I'm not on board with the wait. But, if it was just tomorrow, I'd be ready and eager to find out.

    Hmm you could be right!

    I found both exams extremely hard, especially F215 was so hard to understand because of its ecology questions which I hated. I just really hope the examiners were generous in marking our answers!

    Is it normal to have a large variation between grade boundaries? Usually it's like 6 marks apart. I guess we will see on the 17th

    Hey! I did. Thought f214 was pretty good but a lot of people said it was hard. F215 was a weird paper but overall okay i think.
    Been a while since the exams but would guess that for an A:

    F214 = 45
    F214 = 73 approx

    Probs not correct, just what I think

    Absolutely yeh. I got a decent A last year at AS so I could get Cs this year and get an A overall so don't worry about that.

    In regards to grade boundaries, especially for f215, they do differ quite a lot year on year.

    Did u do OCR chemistry f324 and f325?

    Oh that's great! I hope I can get it! Been working extremely hard this year to get these grades. I'm sure you smashed your exams!

    Nah I did Edexcel chemistry sorry. I did find the unit 4 very hard for that though! What about yours? I hope OCR weren't too bad to you.

    How did you find unit 5 for edexcel chemistry? And what do you think grade boundaries could be for units 4 and 5?
