    OCR CamNat IT [GCSE equiv] - A*: 50 | A: 45 | B: 39 | C: 34

    The only exam I took this year, so the only one I can comment on tbh. Quite a few people found it easy, so I'm predicting it a bit higher than previous years, although there was that "spot the things wrong with this email question", which I suppose would have lost people marks.

    Yeah, I guess. I made quite a few silly mistakes, mainly in the non-calc.
    They have the official mark scheme out?

    100% definitely a high A. If the grade boundaries are low, which I doubt, it could even scrape an A*!

    OMG I really want an A* I worked really hard like I started revising 10 months before the exam because Im not really good at Maths and I wanted to cover a lot of the content. I really hope the examiners are kind with my marking because I marked really harshly to get 158.

    I am almost certain, yes. A* will be around the 165-170 mark.

    My maths teacher predicted Edexcel Maths will be a really harsh marks scheme (over 170 for A*) as it is the last time this type of paper as next year's year 11's will be graded 0-9 on a different paper with slightly different topics, so this one will be high and next years will be low to show the new ones better.

    But I don't know :/

    I don't think that'll be the case. the grading is already seriously harsh (little less than 5% achieving A*). They cannot change grading just because it is the last year of the specification. This would mean that those with the same academic achievement in one year would get a lower/higher grade than a student in another year.
