    I've passed this thread on. Earlier today, the development team launched an update and asked us to feed anything back to them.

    I'm going to die... You need nearly 90% to get an A grade in OCR Eng Lit. So to achieve an A* you need to get 100% by the looks of it. Bye bye to my hopes of getting an A*.

    In my English Lit exam (OCR), I have to get 55/60 (raw marks) for an A. Highest boundary I've seen for English in years. Extremely p*ssed.
    Yes, that's what my daughter has to get. It's ludicrously high. When my son took AL English 7 years ago, he only needed 50/60. And we can't get a proper re-mark any more.

    Actually it's 91. Insane. Who gets 28 out of 30 on those questions? I'm an English graduate & former teacher & I would have trouble. And what makes it worse is you can bet your life the press will be full of crap about 'dumbing down' A levels. What rot. When I took it, I only needed 75% for an A.

    I assume its so high because the questions were predicatble and easier than usual... But its like they want to set us up for failure. Defintely not looking forward to tomorrow.

    And I'm jealous.. 75% for an A!?
