    Because next year they have a different syalbus and they don't have alphabets such as: As and Bs, they have 1-9. So our year is the last year to do this syllabus. So I'm not sure if they will mark our papers lightly or harshly.

    I think they should do that as they always did( marking it correctly and fairly) but I am more concerned about the grade boundaries

    I have just noticed a trend in these grade boundaries since 2010. Every 3 years it goes up. After the rd year starts going down.

    This year they will probably try to make everyone pass as the next yr(yr10) are doing a different syllabus therefore the grade boundaries can go low. Also our yr are not that smart i think, but im not sure.

    I think so, I mean the GCSEs will be harder and uses different grade,
    To resit the exams if anyone have failed maths or English, take them about 6 weeks for them to revise and resit on the exams, they will say wtf because the topics will be different so as the paper as well.
    So I think Edexcel will be nice and put the grade boundaries low as they can because I am amazed how easy most of the questions they are asking, some at the end are hard but most students with C keep saying it's easy because most of the topics are C grade questions in our exams.
    I think 100 percent, they will put the grade boundaries low.

    But if everyone found it easy wouldn't they increase the grade boundaries.
