    Hey guys
    For anyone taking Edexcel GCSE Sciences (Biology Chemistry Physics) I have compiled a list of past grade boundaries so you can see how the boundaries have varied from year to year.

    You can see how it looks like from this screenshot for biology.
    Scroll down later to find Chemistry and Physics.

    Note that exams began apparently in June 2014 for the current specification after a change, and dates before June 2012 were simply too difficult to interpret, which is the reflection of the exam board itself as well.

    Is there one for OCR Gateway/21st Century or Edexcel?
    Edexcel is done

    Thank you!! And don't worry haha, I didn't make it that clear

    I did Maths, Politics, History and Biology. I dropped Biology because it's not relevant to what I want to study at uni and I got a B in it!

    What A-levels are you thinking of taking?
    I want to go to university med school because you're required to study Medicine and become a doctor before you can advance to forensic pathology, so I'm currently thinking of taking Biology, Chemistry, I.C.T (because I'm good at it and I enjoy the subject) and maybe A Level Welsh. If not Welsh, I don't know. I want to take a 4th A Level but I really can't be bothered to go through with two extra years of Welsh...

    I'm so glad the Physics grade boundaries have always been fairly low! Especially since P1 was very hard!

    Edexcel is done
    hey,
    thank you so much for posting all of the past grade boundaries for both aqa and edexcel. Would it be alright if you could post what you think the 2016 grade boundaries would be for the sciences? I would love to see your predictions. Did you do aqa or edexcel for science? If you don't have tims then it would be fine don't stress too much about doing it. Thank you x ☺😊

    I completely agree, I had to leave the exam hall and calm down for 5 minutes after attempting the P2 resistance question.
    I could feel tears going into my eyes as I wrote down my answers to that question, I could feel bullcrap falling onto the page as I wrote each letter and when I got home all I could think was that it was the 2 worst exams I had

    The annoying thing as well was that it was one of my last exams. It was all going so well!

    I think B1 will be very high because that paper was so easy (probably 55 for an A*?)
    B2 very high as well (probably 53/54 for an A*)
    B3 probably 51-52.

    All the physics except for P3 will be very low because of how they worded the questions and it was harder than last years.

    C1 and C2 will be quite high and C3 will be around the same as last year.

    My opinion ahaha but we'll find out on Wednesday!

    Same here, I felt that it ended on such a bad note.

    Hi everyone. I am so worried now that results day is around the corner because I remember clear as day that I forgot to write my name in block capitals in both of my R.E. exams and one of my Psychology exams. Will this have any bearing to whether or not my paper gets marked?
