    Oh btw.

    Those doing AQA you do realise that you only need like 55% - 65% (or was the case for last year and january) of the marks in the exam to achieve an A. Check the scaled marks if you don't believe me, in the results section.

    Takes the pressure off a little bit.

    Yeah I don't even actually know the grade boundaries for anything. What do you need to get out of the paper to get an A, B, C, D etc? What is the paper even out of? Lol haha, 74? I added 2 marks for grammar etc :-) Important marks!! lol. My motto is, if you can't think of evaluation points, do the trick of.. Furthermore, research into this is based on a small sample and so can not be generalised, research lacks ecological validity because it was conducted in a laboratory.. Research may lack cultural relativism because it may be that blabla is different across cultures, or the classic of.. it's determinstic/reductionist

    I may steal this off you :ninja: ah ha

    normally its around

    A:80 %
    b: 70 %
    c:60 %
    d 50 %
    e: 40 %
    u: <40%

    but it'll change by a few marks depending on what they whole country does. if if everyone does well the boundries will move up. or if everyone does crap..(like tomorrow ) the boundries will move down.

    i wish they had realised it earlier. our teacher showed us what the exam is going to be like next year, they have easy things like multiple choice and 2 mark questions!!!

    i hope they don't mark too harshly, maybe they'll go easy cause they know its so much to learn!
    Multiple bloody choice! :eek:

    So we're all terrified about tomorrow then, woop!

    Go to Jan 2008 / June 2007 GCE Results statistics (will be in the tables under the headings). Then go to component title Psychology A module 4. Ill write out the marks needed for an A/B.

    Jan 2008

    A 48/76 = 63%
    B 42/76 = 55%

    June 2007

    A 45/76 = 59%
    B 40/76 = 52%

    All rounded down btw. You get the idea.

    I'm on my 4th cup of coffee argh! Do you think they'll make it easier because we can't redo modules as they're changing the syllabus? Or will we still be able to retake?

    Yeah you'll still be able to retake, because the lower sixth at my school are doing my course still. So it's for the AS exams that are taken in 2009, so don't worry :-)
