    Edexcel is the only board I don't dare look at. Anyone seen any major change from edexcel overall?

    It's shockingly low isn't it?
    50/70 for an A?????

    I think I'm fine with my philosophy paper, but my new testament unit is the highest grade boundaries EVER 56/70 for an A.....
    I'm screwed.

    Not going to be trusting OCR tomorrow. They marked me down by 11 marks last year, and i'm not as trusting with them this year. I *need* an A or else I'm screwed... xx
    It's amazing. 36/70 for the C I need . But yeah 57/70 for the A*, with a sympathetic examiner, perhaps, I don't want to get my hopes up too much though.

    The ethics paper I did isn't much better 55/70 for A, but I didn't totally balls that one up so that's slightly better. It's really disconcerting how at the top end each raw mark is basically 2 UMS :K. 11 marks? Christ, so did you get a remark?

    How bad is econ? I've downloaded boundaries now! Shame none of my exams are there...

    I've started worrying now, last night, in my head I'd convinced myself I have an A* when I know thats not true

    Quite bad 49/60 for an A which is ridiculously high, I need 96 in this exam for the 90 average, there's a very small chance of that happening

    haha yeah , science did that to me in my GCSE years , didn't like it at all ! plus whats worse is with Biology , the examiner marks at his discretion really , and you need specific words to get the mark ( atleast at GCSE level anyway )

    yeah AS results man , really hoping for atleast AAAB ! i mean i could live with AABB i guess , dunno how badly that would affect my chances for Nottingham/Bath Economics courses haha. how about you ?
    Mm trust me it stays the same for A Level. I got my paper back once and I lost a mark because I wrote small intestine instead of linings of small intestine. :rolleyes:

    Wow I'm sure you can get that. And trust me Nottingham is awesome. I went to the Summer School and I fell in love with the campus. I didn't even want to leave. As you can see by my name I'm a potential medic waiting for AS results, but I might change my mind after tomorrow. I'm not sure I've got the grades to apply for Medicine, so I've already started looking into alternative routes to either transfer in my first year or do postgrad It could go either way for me tomorrow. Where else you thinking of applying?

    That is one feel I do know. My range is AABB - A*A*A*A*. Realistically I would be ecstatic with one top grade. I need AAA. What is your offer?
