    I'm debating whether it's worth looking at the grade boundaries tomorrow. I don't want to break down before I've got my results but I don't want false hope either. :C

    What difference does it make? The grade boundaries represent how well students as a whole have done. They've obviously been worked out to account for all students, you included, so it doesn't really matter how high or low they are. All it tells you is how well or badly everyone has done, you'll still come out with the same grade overall.

    I am not too sure about this hypothesis because AQA seemed to mark the June 12 Unit 1 papers more slackly than the January 2012 Unit 1 papers.For example 1% of people got an A* in B1 in January but 10% got an A* in B1 in June, which seems fishy and the BBC did an article on it-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-19599279.So I would expect the marking to be harsher because its the first sitting.
    If Im not mistaken, the unit 1 papers were first sat in Jun 2012 along with the unit 2 exams

    Unfortunately your grade depends on how everyone else has done and it's another day of wondering where you are on the spectrum. (I'm so optimistic.)

    Can the exam boards not just accidentally leak our results to our inboxes? Now would be great. ^_^

    In theory, they should (plus a few minutes). But some exam boards are slower than others at putting up their grade boundaries.

    Mark Schemes aren't released until 9 months after.
    Yh, but the teacher's can see, so they may know some of the answers. So maybe they can tell you? Though I seriously doubt it. Though I'm not too sure about AQA . . . I think almost all exam materials are released for teachers before the results (like one or two days) and for us students like a whole year almost. That's actually stupid.
