    Thank you! The site's a bit confusing to actually use but I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually lol

    What GCSEs have you taken and a levels/further ed have you chosen if you don't mind me asking? Sorry if you've said it before this thread is so long)
    Haha, I remember when I first joined TSR, it was so difficult to navigate around :daydreaming:

    I've taken English Lit, English Lang, Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, History, Spanish and BTEC ICT and after a sort of "gap year" I hope to study History of Art, Maths, English Lit and Philosophy & Ethics at sixth form next September

    What about you? :cute:

    that's for January 2013, not English language taken in june!
    No, thats for June 2013. A quote from AQA: "In November 2012, Ofqual announced that the grade boundaries for the January series will only be set after the June series. This means that UMS marks and grades will only be available after June and released on results day on 22 August 2013".

    Some good grade boundaries from AQA today except the Science ISA,Further Maths and Maths Unit 3.I can't believe the ISAs have completed changed their grade boundaries and this means its unlikely I've got 100% and my teacher said they were marked down considerably last year which didn't matter because I'd got 48/50 but that could mean that 44/50 could easily come down to 42/50 meaning I pretty much need an A* for B2 but the grade boundaries were good for it with 45/60 for an A* and triple science people must be jumping up and down today 39/60 for 100% in B3!

    I really loved the French Listening grade boundaries 25/40 for an A* and 22/40 for an A I'm confident I've got an A, which I reckon is all I really need because I think I've done really well in the Reading, especially with 36/45 for 100% and Writing.

    The Geography grade boundaries are nice only 40/50 for 100% but I'm still extremely worried because its still 20/50 for a D and if I don't get 53 UMS and my coursework doesn't get any higher then I won't get an A and it felt like I really failed that exam.

    The Maths grade boundaries aren't too nice but could have been worse and I only needed just over 75% UMS for an A* and the Further Maths grade boundaries are a bit high at 149/175 for an A^ but I aced them 2 exams so I should be fine.
