    Guys there has been reports the edexcel boundaries are fake. Please wait until the real boundaries are uploaded onto the site!
    If they're fake, they're incredibly well done. The one in the OP is hosted on the Edexcel website (try deleting sections of the link and you'll see it automatically goes to the root page which is Edexcel) so short of some hackers going in and depositing the file in the right location to troll some A-level students, I'm inclined to believe they're real.

    Stop giving people false hope when there's a 99% chance the boundaries are right.

    Did you do Edexcel? If so, coincidently the AQA C4 also had a 5 mark question at the end of the vectors. Those boundaries not out yet.

    I screwed up one of the graph ones where you had to split it into shapes, but overall it was tough but not impossible. C4 is another matter, and bless the poor people with those M1 boundaries. Also, S1 this year was a much nicer paper than 2015?! :eek: Ah well, if these are correct, Lord help us all tomorrow....
    Yeah I did M1 too :cry2: I'm surprised about S1 though, my frieds loved it yet the GB for that was hella low!

    Which hacker in their right mind would dump fake A-Level boundaries at 00:30 onto the web :laugh:

    I'm sure they're real boundaries

    There's hardly any chance that the grade boundaries are fake cause its hosted on qualifications.pearson.comUnless they got hacked, or edexcel made a mistake, no way its fake.....
    I haven't looked through the URL properly but ther other thing is the design of the front page, everything else published so far this year (that I have seen including things published in the last month) has been in a different design (same as last year) but these are different

    I'm not saying three are definitely fake but I'm not 100% convinced they're legit

    Same! I did M1 last year and although the consensus was it was a better paper this year, 64 is a tad harsh. I did D1, 53 for an A is unreal...

    If what you're asking me is right then 40 UMS gets you an E still and 50 gets you a D. 40 UMS is 29 marks and 50 UMS is 33 Marks

    so would 32 be 45 UMS+? You can check on Edexcel ums calculator. I would but I'm in Venice and don't have a laptop :/ flight leaves in 5 hours...

    Edexcel went under a rebrand recently so they've changed their document formatting. The same applies with AQA afaik.
