    Isn't it 79 marks to get a C for edexcel?
    I am pretty sure it is 70 for a C.

    49 is ridiculous
    especially after all the complaints
    Same that's what I thought, the grade boundaries all seem to be ridiculously high except AQA physics 3

    On the Edexcel website it says that you need 38 marks on paper 1 and 41 marks on paper 2 which adds up to 79 for C:/

    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

    I think you're onto something there, it makes perfect sense. I'm sure my teacher did warn us that they could be high this year due to that
    It's scary to think about but I don't see why it couldn't happen

    Grade boundaries do tend to rise as specifications become older; teachers get better at teaching them, students have more past papers from which to practise, and there's only so many ways to ask a question (as we saw with one of the chemistry questions which was almost identical to a previous question).

    Whilst I doubt that grade boundaries would be deliberately raised for that purpose, I can't say I'd be surprised about it...

    I know!! The exams weren't partcularly difficult in comparison to previous years but you basically need to have aced everything for the A*, think it's a little too high
    I know, j thought the paper was somewhat easier but not to the extent the grade boundaries should be this high
