    Out of my 5 exams/coursework done with WJEC. .I'm having with 3 of them, very good solid boundaries, a bit higher but the exams were a lot more reasonable compared to last year AS exams ahaha. 2 of them are ridiculously high, over 70% for an E in one of my A2 exams... :facepalm:

    The F324 boundary for an A is up hugely! (its up 9 from last year but last years paper was absolutely dire)... how did everyone find it this year? do you think the boundaries reflect the difficulty?
    Urmm yeaa quite reflect but still AS boundary for an A is high 56/80 although it wasnt hard and 52/80, which is much better. Biology AS exam was just a nightmare probably the worst exam that could have been created. Bye medicine in UK, hello Europe however i'm still doing AS do i have to give up if i have ABCC or smth like that or it depends what teaachers predict me?

    unless you have your exam paper in front of you right now you cannot predict the grade you will see on your paper come thursday, you just cannot.
    Yes you absolutely can, if you are good at counting up your marks after the exam. Last year I knew all of my module scores to within a few UMS once the boundaries came out.

    AQA Business here.

    Really hoping this is the case for my course. If it rises as much as some of the other courses on here have been then I'm gonna start worrying.
    The only reason i think they have dropped in our course because we had long answer question with 20 marker at the end ... i dont know how your was like

    I'm genuinely curious what the examiner's report would say.

    Do you think theres a chance that they've made a mistake in the chemistry grade boundaries?

    Probably yes correct for maths exams, but for longer answer questions this is much harder to do, you are probably one of very few people who can do this, the rest of the people have no idea how many marks they think they got and just panic and panic and panic, I know because it was me last year. Counted all my marks in bio and chem before leaving the hall, and was way off (to low each time) and got much much higher, its sometimes harder to judge.

    Good for you though, nice to have a really good idea before results.

    How did you go about working out the UMS, rough estimate? How can I find the 100UMS boundary for Edexcel maths? Thanks
