    Wow those boundaries are low!!! Probably a really picky mark scheme though....

    F214 - A is 42, A* is 46 (quite low boundaries)
    F215 - A is 57, A* is 62 (very low boundaries)

    F324 - A is 42, A* is 46 (low/expected boundaries)
    F325 - A is 79, A* is 87 (very high boundaries, very high indeed... Goodbye A*)

    Those last two are chemistry not biology boundaries! It's 42 for f214 and 57 for f215

    Omggg yayyyyyy for once they haven't ****ed us over with the grade boundaries

    Yeah they did,for f214 at least. The boundaries increased from last year's one, which isn't fair as last year's paper was easier than this year's paper.

    So do you think 59 would be enough for 127 ums in f215?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    on F215 each mark (in the B to A* range) is worth 3 ums - going by this you should need 60... 59 would give you 126 ums so its close but no cigar as they say, sorry :/

    But F215 was easier and the boundaries are ridiculously low! Lower than they have ever been in the past EVER...so they'll even each other out I guess...

    Well thanks for the vote of confidence...👍 there's no need to be nasty...if you read my post properly, you'd see that I didn't actually say it was easy, I said easiER ( than F214), which it was.

    I actually though f214 was easiER than f215! Hated that paper so much but I always knew it would be rank judging past papers! And also really low grade boundaries may mean really strict mark schemes 😭 what does everyone need? I need an A with a C in coursework 😭 I'm hoping 90% from AS will help drag me up!

    I am in EXACTLY the same position as you ( coursework, AS etc) I reeaaaaallly need an A 😣 I thought the long answer questions in F215 were good! I got really stressed in F215 because none of it seemed to be very closely linked to the bloody syllabus!!!

    I know! I think that's why I did so well lasts year because it was all very closely linked to the syllabus whereas this year F215 was SUCH BS!! What is your firm and what do you need? I'm praying we've done it!!!!!
