    Thinking of all you edexcel guys, it sucks that the exam board would do something like this. Hopefully they go a bit lighter on the marking. I have my fingers crossed for you all! :console:

    you can always resit them in November and can do 3 years of A levels instead of 2 :yep:
    If I resit the exam would I still be allowed to get on the course this year?

    An A doesn't make you some sort of peasant, take it easy, a lot of people would be ecstatic over an A.
    Maybe. However, I need an A* to do Further Maths as an AS level!

    Yh especially physics. Since when was physics on par with biology? This year they gave the worst physics papers, worse than last year and instead of getting lower GBs they increased it!

    Exactly what I was thinking! Maybe we just have to accept the monstrosity that is the grade boundaries

    why does it say template in the url and in past papers theres no template
    http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...late-Final.pdf
    edexcel 2016 (possibly fake)

    http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...Boundaries.pdf 2
    edexcel 2015 (legit)
    its real just accept it, they would've used a template to make the document and just didn't bother removing that word from the url. it sucks but there's no point denying it just gotta come to terms with it

    Well.. tbf we we're all expecting this cause compared to last year the exam papers were alot eaiser and had less demanding questions.

    All we can do now is pray that the examiners weren't harsh on marking.

    Wish u all the best of luck on Thursday!

    Good Night

    I don't think they're saying that. I just think they're disappointed, as many are, after we worked and worked to get that A* and then the boundaries are the highest they've ever been. It's like someone who was desperate for a B getting a C, or someone desperate for a C getting a D - just because they're aiming for an A* and got an A, despite it being an amazing grade, they still have every right to be disappointed in my opinion

    ummm nope, you have to wait until next year because if you resit the exam in November and you'll get the results in January, so it's super late to do a course this year
    you can always discuss with your teachers :yep:

    Preach!

    And honestly don't worry about A* in sciences and maths. Just wait until results day im sure somehow they found extra marks in your paper!

    Exactly. I couldn't really care less if someone else would be "ecstatic" with an 'A'. I counted 168 and I need that A* as do many other people. Some have higher targets and standards along with abilities than others.
