    It could be right, cuz they never explicitly said it wasn't true. They just said that other factors were overlooked......

    I feel like it will increase by 1 mark again this year (has been happening since 2013 I think) but I really hope it goes down!

    Honestly, doubt Cambridge will care about us wanting the grade boundaries to go down hahaha. Best to forget about it. We've done the exam and now it's over. Focus on other exams!

    Judging by the answers people wrote, I don't think we did as bad as we think we did. Most of us got similar answers and sure it was tougher than the usual papers but in a way it was easier as well (in my opinion). Hopefully the grade boundaries do go down by a few marks but this similar situation happened last year (nothing really happened).

    Please respond to my question. In my school coursework, I got a C1,B2 and A3. In my Speaking and Listening I got an B1. How many marks will I need to get at least and C or B grade? I'm quite worried, so I would appreciate a response to my question. (By the way, the C1 was in year 9)
    I would say your coursework average is a B2 so about 33-34 marks. Your Soeaking and Listening 22/30-18/25. 33+18=51. A C in November was 75 marks in total so 75-51=24. However, I don't know if you add the reading mark after you calculate the average coursework mark. You only need 24 marks which is okay since 15 of those marks are literally spoonfed to you.

    In my coursework I got 47/50 and 25/30 in speaking. What do I need, roughly, for an A overall?
