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

    "They all f*cked up Q1-9. The end."
    LOL I bet the usual "Only a minority of candidates were unable to finish the paper in time" bs is incoming
    When it should be more like "Only the most able candidates were able to complete Q1 onwards"

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

    God these Edexcel grade boundaries haven't helped my faith in getting an A* in further maths. I took S2 last year and got 88 UMS, so I need 91 average in FP2 and FP3 to get an A*.

    I think I got 69/75 in FP2 (this could be 70 it depends on whether the first question gives a mark for identify the incorrect region given the choice of two) , where 68 is the boundary so that should be 91 or 92 UMS. Can someone please please tell me which as it's important.

    Then in FP3, I think I lost 4 marks which would be on the 71/75 boundary, but some of those are shakey so 72 is possible, as is 70.

    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
    Well BUSS3's first question, which is usually a free 10 marks "fill in the formula" question, was a paragraph-based one that hadn't appeared for years. I think it might drop a bit based on that and the second question not having that much to write about. I get an extra 4 Raw Marks due to extenuating circumstances so hopefully I should be able to mitigate the blow an increased boundary might have.

    my bad completely forgot that this was a mainly A2 thread! Is A2 much harder than AS?
    No problem
    And hm I found it more interesting than British politics (I did American at A2) but I did find it more difficult yeah. And these grade boundaries have made me lose a bit of hope 😂 but I guess we won't find out till tomorrow
    Good luck for tomorrow!

    Boundaries are beautiful.
    Lol if i still **** up.
    M3 72/75 for A* made me LOL since M4/5 were easier.
    (i'm ocr but still. . . )

    if 63/72 is 80 ums and 67/72 is 90 ums can i guarantee that it is 71/72 for 100 ums? I reckon I've got 71 in s2 and i need 100 xD

    You dont know that yet, so many people right now are just panicking, calm down unless you have your paper/know how many marks you have got in the exam you do not know what your going to get. Keep calm, only a day to go!

    No you dont have to give up, get AAA predictions and you will be fine.
    Yep, still no idea for chemistry there is hope for an A, however in Biology i will pray for a B so that i get A prediction. Thanks anyway, i see you are preventing people from comitting suicide in here (not me, i'm pretty calm because i expected it). Still, Italy or my home country is an option for medicine.

    I don't know OCR's but AQA's M3 must've been the case of 98% of the paper is not doable by 99% of the candidates. lol
