    All boundaries seem nice :dontknow:

    Except:
    English on OCR
    Economics Unit 2 OCR
    Langages on AQA

    So far
    People would say OCR A Chemistry ones are too high because the exams were challenging but I personally think its about right for the difficulty of the papers really

    Edexcel boundaries are quite interesting. Very pleased with the low boundaries for M1 and M2.

    C3 ones are shocking, but was kind of expected after the post exam reaction.

    Really disappointed with the S4 boundaries. Was a difficult paper and the boundaries are very, very high.

    Actually I can see both AS and A2. Try opening it in a different browser, that's what I did
    I can see it using Windows Explorer now

    I think it shouldve been 80-81 for an A*, not 83 ugh. It was nearly as hard as jan and A* was 77
    I disapprove about it being nearly as hard as Jan's, there were only 2-3 parts of the questions which were actually challenging, the rest seemed pretty standard really.

    Ouch, what's the exam out of?

    I need to get an A in the three units that I did... Now looking at these wholly stupid boundaries, perhaps I'll only get an A in one

    Hey ho, we can't do nothing now but rant in vexation. Tomorrow we'll find out
    The exam is out of 100
    I really hope you do get an A in all three of them! Good luck with your Chemistry

    When you say unit 2, are you talking about AS? The macro one?

    Didnt you think im the 80s was a bit low for an A though? Made f335 easier than f334 you shouldnt be dropping almost 40 marks and getting an A tbh, just gotta deal with it...harsh I know

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    No I don't think it was. If you look at F335 papers, they're quite difficult, as they throw absolutely random synoptic crap into it- look at the 2012 papers, it had something to do with anhydrides which no one really had a clue :/

    Plus the calculations were really weird this time round. I know we have to deal with it. But I just feel let down that OCR have jumped it up so much, without a prior year, I feel this shows inconsistency. If grade boundaries are always going up, that sends a very negative message out.

    And it's always our year that faces the brunt of things that the government does. Really, if I get a grade that would've been higher in all the past years, I'll be seriously annoyed.

    I'm sure the vast majority of people on the F335 thread found it, at best, average?
    Yep i'd say typical F335 paper, so grade boundaries should have been similar to every previous year, trust it to be us lol :rolleyes:

    Why is D2 not included in the OCR list of A2 modules (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/142072-...-june-2013.pdf)? Bearing in mind that it has been for all other exam seasons.

    Ouch, that's the same for our unit 2 as well. We can only drop 12 marks, gonna be really tight :/

    Thank you! Likewise, I hope you get the grades for your chemistry! We must make sure that this doesn't demotivate us from other subjects

    You have a list?

    The grade boundaries don't really change anything. Still hoping for A*A*AA.

    Because of STUPID AQA increasing the Biology ISA boundary by 2 marks means I've probably got a B overall.

    I needed AAB..

    I'm looking at getting BBB

    I'm screwed.

    Wish I hadn't seen those grade boundaries because I'm depressed and stressed out now.

    Do you really think Languages seem that bad? I sat French and German AS with AQA and think they're quite fair. :confused:

    Even the coursework modules have gone up by a few marks as well... If it turns out to be these very little marks that count for getting into university... Well, that would be horrendous.

    Just gotta wait in sheer agony for tomorrow
