    Although 2016 was harder, our grade boundaries will still be higher considering the fact it's the last year with A*-U but what I'm saying that it won't be enormously high like people are making it out to be. Unless of course everyone has done exceptionally well in which case it will go high. Otherwise it should be moderate grade boundaries especially for C, B and A grades
    it actually depends on how people nationally have done - e.g. the top 20% will get A*s. But I think the grade boundaries will be lower than last year because the exam papers across all the boards have been much harder.

    About 135/136. Can't be 133 because boundaries are never repeated. A could even be 132, it's only A* that I think will be a lot higher than last year
    i thought like 134 for an A lol plus 135 and 136 have been used

    It doesn't matter if they've been used or not in the past! Grade boundaries are based on how hard people found the exam.

    I'm afraid I have no idea as I don't know how everyone did! Just try to relax - speculating will just worry yourself more so try to enjoy your summer somehow. You'll have you answer soon enough.

    Good luck *

    What you think you've got:
    Most likely 4 A*'s, 4 A's and 2 B's, but it could be higher or lower haha.
    English language, (A) english lit, (B) maths (A), science core (A*), science additional (A), religious studies (B), art (A*), geography (A), computer science (A*) and Polish. (A*) 10 GCSEs in total. I would have done 9 but they offered me Polish which I am fluent in- so I did it.

    Predicted grades:
    This is what my teachers predicted for me back in march mocks: 1 A*, 6 A's, 1 C and 1 D.

    What you've actually got:
    I will find out in 20 days!

    How are you feeling about results day?
    Happy and exited! There's no way I will not pass and not go to college, so I'm not worried. I hope I get more A*s than I'm expecting, & looking forward to seeing how everybody else does. My friend might be barely passing everything, (we tried so hard to get her to revise trust me) I'm really worried for her, hope she doesn't cry.
    I'm really exited about the atmosphere on that day, me & my other friend decided to come in earlier and panic together in front of the school gates haha. It's going to be fun.

    How are you going to open your results?
    In front of everyone as soon as I get them, I won't care at that point as I've been waiting for them for so long. But my hands will still be shaking.

    What A levels are you doing? (if not what is your alternative)
    Fine art, Media studies and computer science. I chose the subjects I enjoy most/relevant to what I want to do.

    Are you going to record your GCSE results on YouTube? (If so I can't wait to see it!)
    Maybe, I'll try to.

    Why the f*** does everyone that done edexcel maths discuss grade boundaries so much surely the first 10 times you got told the grade boundaries would be higher than last year but lower than the year before was enough?

    Where did you get the idea that boundaries are never repeated? Because it's wrong

    A* is given to more like top 5%, not 20%.

    If you did AQA, Physics was a hot mess! I did triple and P3 was also horrible. I hated Biology mainly for that B1 exam
    Exactly! B2 and B3 were okay
