    Anyone got the idea how are they going to decide what is your grade for the subject (A,B,C,...) ?For example, last year I took D1 FP1 and S1 for Further Math, my grade is 88,88,70 respectively.My overall is 243/300 and i got an A, Why ? Thank you
    FP1 D1 and S1 would make up Further Maths AS. An A is the highest grade you can get at AS

    Anyone got any predictions for AQA Psychology A, Sociology or HIS3M? So nervous for these boundaries...could be the make or break for uni!
    grade boundaries usually go up by 1 mark for Psya 3 so i expect for an A* 52, A 46, B 40 and a C 35. unless half of us did really badly and it goes down by 2 marks. PSYA 4 varies a lot so its hard to predict.

    Right, so for OCR Chemistry and Biology, the new AS levels, on our results sheet, will they give our raw marks. They aren't giving UMS as there is no UMS, but there should be raw marks right?

    If that is not the case, how would we know how many marks we are off the next grade?

    I mean those of us doing gender had a big shock and most didn't do well on that bit, but everyone doing the other subjects seemed quite happy so I have no hope on that paper

    As I understand it, there will not be any raw marks on results sheets.

    You need to ask your teacher or exams officer who can look up your raw mark on OCR Interchange.

    Alright let's get this out the way. How many of you cheated on your ISA's which inevitably contributes to the disgusting grade boundaries we're going to see?

    I have friends in 4 local schools and they all confirmed multiple classes cheated. Meanwhile there's our school doing it properly. It's so frustrating to know I'm inevitably getting a B grade max in the ISA. And that's in my best one. In my worst I'll probably get a D.
    Yes, it's annoying but as it has been said they've finally scrapped the ISAs. Just unlucky it wasn't this year. Although, the difference in UMS between the grades is pretty small. As long as you get a high C then getting an A overall between the two exams is accessible. I thought the SHM ISA this year varied off the syllabus quite a bit, it was a tough one. Very sad that the boundary is unlikely to change much.

    Grade boundaries are officially released, mark schemes are leaked onto here. It will probably only be the AQA mark schemes which leak. (Edexcel ones are out already.)

    I did HIS3M! I have no idea what the boundaries will be but I hope they're kind, weird questions and I can't think of anyone who was particularly confident afterwards.. I think the way it plays out for me I only need a middle D in this exam to get my B overall, so fingers crossed it hasn't gone any worse than that. I wish you the best of luck with your results .

    I need a high B to get the B I need for uni and I know I've got a C at best, a D realistically
