    Oh nooo.

    I know. I saw. Why did it increase up to 15 marks.
    I'm literally so scared. I checked my work so many ti :cry:mes using the unofficial markscheme.
    As far as I was aware, they decide grade boundaries based on how well the students have done. A year with lots of correct answers means grade boundaries are increased. That's what I thought it was back in the day anyway....


    Oh and hi everyone :ninja:

    Why are the grade boundaries so high? The test wasn't that easy so you could up the make by 10 or 15

    Yeah you like need to lose 4 marks to get an A* and if you need an A you need to lose like 8 marks. So stupid.
    I hate Edexcel.
    I found other exam boards okay though. For example, OCR, they lowered the grade boundaries (computing for me) so inshallah I should get an A

    Exactly. Easy paper means higher boundaries. Shouldn't affect how you would have done.

    Haha, because it's my fave emoji. Like I always used it lots :rofl: hence my avatar being a ninja :lol:

    Because it was obviously a really nice paper :holmes: I think I have heard of similar jumps and decreases in grade boundaries.

    You'll be fine Aysha!
