    If you think about it abit more the F321 paper really wasn't that hard, hence the reason for the higher grade boundaries which I completely expected.
    it wasn't hard,it's just how tricky it was!

    Let's be rational here. You should judge your own performances from your last exam period June last year and Jan this year and see if your performances reflect the grade boundaries or you are often lower. If the boundaries are low, don't be happy too soon yet because it means that the majority of students screwed up and unless you are one of the top one, you will be outstanding. In a nutshell, it doesn't mean anything at the moment. What matters is the results and track tomorrow. Don't hope up false hope or be pessimistic for no reason. Enjoy today guys!

    Then you can understand why the boundaries are high, because not everyone has been caught out by the tricks

    Exactly the same feeling that I have right now!
    I think that's the worst part for me. All my teachers had high expectations of me and I can just imagine them looking at my results and wondering what has happened. :ashamed2:

    Have you looked at your grade boundaries? :-)

    I'm afraid according to Arsey it is 75
    I wish the edexcel chemistry boundaries would hurry up! I am quite scared for how high they are going to be.

    normally june papers have higher boundaries than jan's paper so it's understandable,but for a paper of that standard,i expected a 47-49 boundary!
