    It's ridiculous. Near perfect on each exam just for an A, let alone A*!!
    57/60 for an A* still, thankfully.

    I still do not understand how one can be expected to attain 29/30 and 28/30 on two essays - both written in an hour, closed text, and on a random theme.

    Absolutely ridiculous.

    Just got AQA to check now but I'm happy with the WJEC and OCR grade boundaries

    EDIT: Holy Sh*t, just saw the grade boundary for C3 WJEC (didn't sit the exam)... To get 100 UMS you had to get 75/75...

    RIP people who found that exam hard

    Bro, 56 for an A 80% is fairly high and for Bio it was expected as it was hard paper.
    Bio was tragic, but 61 for the A is magical

    Totally ****. Need an A in the exam this year to get my total up to a B (C last year). Even with 36/40 in the coursework it won't happen now Pls let my firm Uni be lenient.
