    These grade boundaries don't look good for me.

    Saying that, I am very happy my school chose to do the Maths GCSE a year early, and therefore I sat the exam last year when the grade boundaries were quite low.

    I am actually really nervous & upset, I was awake till 4:30am last night worrying and I woke up at 9:30am so I'm currently running on 5 hours sleep which isn't really working when the past three nights I haven't slept well either.
    Everyone in my family keeps saying if the grade boundaries are high, then everyone must have done well but I know I am not in that 'everyone' as I know I didn't do as well as some people in exams.
    Hopefully I'll be surprised with great results tomorrow...
    Good luck! Hopefully I will too, when people say "everyone must have done well" i'm like "I'm not everyone"

    AQA German is killing me! 41/45 for A* in reading and 56/60 for A* in the writing coursework. Seriously?
    I know, it's pretty darn high. Luckily I loved the reading exam, so I'm hoping it'll be OK

    Yeah I thought that was strange, as I found unit 1 and 2 much harder than unit 3

    Perhaps the grade boundaries are high because of the new GCSE spec being introduced for the year below us. Perhaps the government want this years results looks bad, so next year they can say that this new spec is great because all the results will improve
