    I'm not sure I'm allowed to. But ask Arsey, they are real.
    Your source is the Emporium. Any chance of the boundaries for the rest of the Maths exams?

    Yes I do OCR, the grade boundaries were crazy high last year I found the King Lear section easier than Wife of Bath. I hated the amount of choice for the question haha
    I did the same texts as you. Apparently, since the texts are refreshed every few years and this was the first year using the new texts, the grade boundaries will be somewhat lower than last year. This was my tutor's speculation but she's usually right about this sort of thing.

    I'm so jealous of people who sat Edexcel right now.

    Hoping WJEC M2 grade boundaries will be just as considerate...

    That makes sense! Fingers crossed then! My teacher always marked our mock papers under the assumption that an 'A' was 26/30.

    I know right! I am definitely not expecting an A if they are that high this year too! My teacher wouldn't tell us our coursework marks either so I literally have no idea what kind of grade to estimate :/ I did too, I was really pleased there was a question about suffering :lol: The question I did for WoB fitted really well with that text but not so well with the other one Hopefully the boundaries will be low because it's a new specification or something :lol:

    Yes, it shouldn't be that high this year. It was 26.5 last year which is pretty bad :eek:
