    I don't think it would make sense because many say that the current GCSE specification was too easy which is an influencing factor on the spec being changed, so they wouldn't want more people getting higher grades because it would again, show that it's still too easy. Also they don't want too many people resitting due to complications of having to sit an exam of a completely different spec.

    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

    My chemistry teacher said this would happen, but surely they just set the grade boundaries to what a certain percentage of candidates achieved? So, an A* say might be always set to what the top 10% of students get, an A might be the next 10%, etc.

    Not to worry. You could get 35 on one, 35 on the other and you'll still get a C. Teacher said so..

    wtf why did they make aqa p2 higher than b2 when b2 was a beautiful exam and everyone found p2 hard around the uk.. with that brown dwarf nonsense, we must of underestimated ourselves OR they don't want us to have any A*'s..
    but then again, the geography A physical is extremely low, and most people found that quite easy (apart from me)

    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...
    This is so true and although it means we may all have worse GCSE's, our A-levels will be better as the specification changes. And a-levels are more important than GCSEs so I would much rather it be this way round.
