    Did I really read 49/60 for B1 Biology?!
    Damn I was wrong on predictions.
    I guess people did too well on other papers.

    Oh well B3 is 41/60 for an A* so that's cool.

    People must have done very well on it.
    In fairness, B3 is 41/60 so I guess that levels it out.

    Totally agree.
    I guess the exam board had enough clever people to set it at 49.

    The other thing they also do is add marks to your paper so they can make it look like that paper went very well and maintain a high standard for an A*

    That's why remarks tend to cause grades to lower

    They don't just add marks willy nilly to maintain high standards, and most remarks stay the same.

    In my opinion the aqa boundaries seem pretty fair apart from the B1 but apart from that I am most pleased
