    considering you did an all nighter, shows how unprepared you were lol.

    For the Depth you need to make sure you know your experiments. around 25 marks are available for experiments which can be easily picked up. Then the rest is your knowledge and application. I am considering Aeronatuical Engineering so I want a B minimum this year. I got 45 in the Breadth so I need to aim for at least 50 in depth
    i did everything i could before the exam, i didnt leave everything to the last moment, good luck tho

    55 won't be 90 us it will be like 82 or something
    Nah the grade boundaries for A will probably be around 50 or lower, so it would be around 90 UMS, at least in my opinion with having done exams with OCR for so long.

    i did all the papers, not one bit i remember came from the past papers, it was all new stuff... done flash cards too
    thought that too about most questions, everyone else was in the same situation,
    the grade boundaries will apparently be very low, ask your teachers for advice for depth, u have a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy, don't batter yourself about it, you can always resit in any case

    Overall most likely 70ish percent. I do hope that its lower. I got 45 in breadth :/ i need at least 50 to perhaps get an A overall

    No, grade boundaries are going to be extremely low seeing as the majority found it hard. Lowest boundaries were in 2014, where 59% was an A. Expect similar boundaries to this

    No that would never happen. The exam was not that difficult.
    My predicted Boundaries
    A - 69% - 73%
    B - 63% - 68%
    C - 57% - 62%

    That seems reasonable, looking at the old spec too.

    I think it would be around 75% for an A overall tbh. I would agree with your % had everyone not found the last paper so easy.

    Just remember when you say "Everyone", it's only people who are on student room. How many people is that like 100 maximum? There are 1000s of candidates sitting the exam lol

    But everyone in my year doing physics found it really good. Consider the fact that some of these people barely revised physics throughout the year. Well, who knows until grade boundaries are released.

    PLEASE RESPONDSo paper 2 went so much better and I got 50 something out of 70, however due to my first paper I don't know if I'll even get a C overall, so I was wondering, is it possible that even though I'm dropping physics after AS level, I can do a resit in like September? Have OCR made resits for the new spec? Will it matter if I'm dropping it? Any response is greatly appreciated

    Then there are people from my school where only 3 of us find it went well. The other odd 20 said bad xD.
