    The AQA boundaries for the science unit 1,2 and 3 higher tier exams seem really good for the A grade! Although the A* boundary on the chemistry paper is a tad hogh

    I saw that. I'm doubting my German grade a bit now pretty much all of the other boundaries look good though

    What does everyone think of chemistry? I'm not sure how they compare to previous years, but they seem a bit high
    Well, it's a shame, since the only GCSEs I did were maths and German

    Lower, but not the lowest. It's been below 160 recently I think.
    Yes mate i done those past papers they were harder than these when u compare but oh well im glad its not in 170 area. Im hoping i scrapped an A* paper 1 average would be like 80 for me and paper 2 average 84 min... fingers crossed good luck guys cant wait for tomorrow!

    60%, because the combined speaking and writing come to 180UMS, and you can get 300UMS total

    Did anyone do AQA additional science? The coursework mark up to 44 for an A*! Luckily I got that, I was hoping that it would be a couple into the boundary, to boost my grade. But on the mark exactly is quite tight.

    Oh okay, Thanks. I got 58 and 59 out of 60 in writing and speaking respectively. Is that full 180 UMS?

    Also who did the iGCSE in further maths (AQA)? What difference is an iGCSE, because they were offering it in english for people who were unlikely to pass GCSE, so is it more simple or what? Because further maths certainly wasn't!

    I'm thinking exactly the other way round!

    I found the listening paper easier than normal so I thought those were good boundaries, but reading was a bit more difficult in my opinion, so that's where I don't think the reading is a reasonable grade boundary xD
