How come A2 A boundaries are c. 10 points higher than AS A boundaries.
Do only geniuses sit A2??
Cannot believe paper 5 needs 74 for an A - no way did I get that as I reckon I dropped more like 20 marks. Just hope scores across the other papers make up for it!

74 for an A is ridiculous tbh.

Thank God I sat Unit 2 as well, which went really well.

I believe AS edexcel chemistry exams are out of 80
and A2 ones are out of 90

Really thankful I did a retake as well!
Did Unit 1, which has wonderful boundaries in comparison.
So yeah, I only need a D for this which to be honest, I'm nervous about looking at those boundaries, wow. Goodluck everyone, maybe the boundaries are high because we've done better than we thought. That's a weak line of 'hope' there but I'm sure you'll all be grand. We supported each other during revision, and I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped make this thread what it was!

Good luck with University and whatever your plans are (gap years, etc) - hope to see you around TSR on other threads and the like, and hope you get on well!

You are of course correct - and I am unbelievably witless! :-)

Ah, 80/90 I'm trying to remember what I got wrong but it was so long ago! We'll just have to wait and see, biology is no better.

Unit 5 boundaries are ridiculously high. Didn't think that exam was one of the easiest either...

I didn't like the exam either.
Too much inorganic.

Maybe we're just really clever and don't know it yet.

I was just wondering how do I work out my UMS for the practicals if I know my raw mark and what the grade boundaries are now that they've been posted? I ask because I can't use the Edexcel raw to ums converter on my computer since I don't have Microsoft Excel.

The UMS goes up pretty uniformly so for example I was given 39/40 by my College, this was one mark more than the 38 needed for an A* (54). So if you need 40 for 60 UMS and 38 for 54 UMS, 39 will almost certainly be 57 UMS. You can apply this for any mark.

Well I got a B in Chemistry overall, despite having a D in this exam.
I honestly could not be bothered for the kinds of questions in this exam, but I'm happy it's all done with.

Well done people!

Got a B in this exam, but got my A overall thanks to Unit 2, which saved me.

Everybody I know seems to have done relatively badly in this exam which is odd considering the paper was pretty nice (as Unit 5 exams go). Perhaps Edexcel marked harshly and combined it with the high grade boundaries. Who knows...

I got a B in this exam. However, my grade was brought down to a C overall as I haven't done any resits yet. I was wondering if you guys had any advice. My results for the units are A for CH01, C in CH02, C in CH04, B in CH05. My coursework was pretty shocking, too. I'm 15 UMS from a B in chemistry overall (and 75 from an A) do you think I should resit any modules?
