    why do you say that ? is there any reason that you predict the marks for an a* grade so high ?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    It was simply an easy paper at A* grade. Grade boundaries will most likely decrease at grades B and C but increase at A* and A due to kind questions. There were many people coming out of the second exam near 100%. A* could be 162 but I feel this is just a bit low for this particular exam. It seems most people on the borderline are between 160-165 so A* should, if set like it normally is, be around 166-170.

    Nah, no one knows what the grade boundaries are. So you could probably get that A*. Good luck!

    hey, although people on TSR may be accurate when predicting grade boundaries, you only have to wait another 24 hours to get the real ones so don't worry yourself on something that may not be true..

    I'm worried because I really want an A but I think I'll miss it by a few marks or scrape it.

    Good luck for your results!
