    It's to do with honour and pride of the family as for scenario 1: 2 Asian familys one gets 3 A*s the other gets 3 Cs. Now that will obviously hurt their honour and reputation and that's probably the reason why.
    :ditto:

    My Asian family will literally disown me if I get anything less than what they expect from their son. It is brutal, but at least it gets you far in life.

    Really? Could you link pages where people claim to know grade boundaries? Have you found out any yourself?
    I know for a fact that they're not released (to the public) until Wednesday. I think people were linking the UMS boundaries earlier in this thread, which are the same every year.

    Excited/nervous to see the M1 and S1 boundaries on wednesday, and in general the grade boundaries. Please be low!
    I'm guessing 61-62 for an A in S1, but it would be nice if it were lower.

    Kind of, but it eventually boils down to the massive population, and hence competition which means only the creme de la creme can get into good unis, and get high paying jobs.
    Reputation is merely a side effect, as good as 'the reputation you'd have as a doctor than a mechanic.'

    I assumed that they can change the status any time now since updates from ucas to us is closed.. And so we would only find out when ucas officially opens on Thursday morning from 8 if we have met the conditions of our offer. Last year people began receiving updates from 7.30 but ucas aims for 8. And some unis even send out confirmation emails before ucas updates even though they're not meant to
    When you said unis send out confirmation before ucas updates..do you mean there's a chance that they'll send it in the middle of the night/extremely early in the morning (like before 7)??

    What do people who did GEOG3 AQA think the grade boundaries for an A*/A will be?

    It will have your overall grade for each subject and then an expanding thing like the spoilers on this site except it'll be a + to the right, and if you click it the section will drop down to reveal your module scores.

    And in response to the Asian thing, There's somebody I know who isn't top of the year type thing. She's just a normal student, so I don't get this stereotype that much because I haven't seen too much evidence of it in my life. Although apparently both her and her brother are good at tennis and piano because they got tutored in them.
    Aw rite thanks. Should be ok.

    Yes, I agree. I just cannot understand it. To me if you are not super smart then you cannot get A stars in every single subject all the time. There is a maximum for everyone and to me I know there are some subjects I could not get higher than a B. I think its luck of the draw for certain families when it comes to grades.

    Not 100% sure when but I've definitely heard of people finding out that way. It's Possible but unlikely because I don't think they're meant to do it so don't bank on it
