    Grade boundaries for Edexcel, AQA + OCR are roughly as I expected for my exams. Really nervous about tomorrow.

    I'm happy with AQA (and hopefully still will be when I get my results.) The science boundaries, especially the unit 3 ones, make me feel better cause those exams were quite hard. Also has the boundary for English Language decreased? If so, I never expected that! Although literature has increased (but I expected that.)

    I want to know WJEC but they will be a long while off

    AQA GRADE BOUNDARIES FOR SCIENCW ARE LOOKING GOOODD. I can't believe P2 is 41/60. Last year it was 51/60! There were mixed views thought because people some found it super easy and others difficult. I found physics quite hard:/

    I found that P2 exam not too bad from memory, but a lot of people said it was hard and that P3 was easier. I just hope that the boundaries aren't low because of harsh marking - they did predict a drop in science top grades achieved.

    The boundaries are pretty low but I see your point. They probably will be marking harsher on it. I didn't do triple. Wish I had done though, so I don't know about P3,C3,B3. Are you going to be doing any of the sciences for AS level?

    I think there's typing errors in biology...

    But:
    Biology: 46 ish
    Chemistry: 52 ish
    Physics: 54 ish

    I say ish, give or take 1/2.

    Ah some of the grade boundaries look so good!! AQA science is great, and english language is surprisingly lower than last year the ISA grade boundaries are higher than our teachers predicted but that's okay because of the lower Unit 3 grade boundaries
