    Unless you're not referring to Edexcel it was one of the easiest C3 & C4 I've ever seen. Would not be surprised if the grade boundaries are rocket high. Could be 64 for an A in C3 and 68 for an A in C4.
    I was refering to AQA, which the boundary (just released) is 53/75 for an A* :O

    Someone needs to update the link at the start of this thread for AQA. Lots of people will be looking at that and not looking at page 35/36 for the AQA grade boundaries.

    Those aren't the AQA boundaries. Literally someone got the 2015 boundaries and edited 2016 into it. None of the max marks for any of the papers make sense.
    it is the real grade boundaries. its on their website

    It's on their website so I think it's the real one.

    Did anyone do Psychology and Sociology?
    What do you think of the grade boundaries for those subjects?

    PSYA4 seems okay, but I thought PSYA3 would lower? I didn't do gender, but apparently that question messed everyone up. Sociology Unit 4 seems okay

    Upon further reflection and comparison...

    2015 CIV1D CLASSICAL CIVILISATION UNIT 1D - 50 for an A
    2016 CIV1D CLASSICAL CIVILISATION UNIT 1D - 46 for an A
    2015 & 2016 CIV1D CLASSICAL CIVILISATION UNIT 2B - 47 for an A

    Seems that classics has had a 4 mark drop for unit 1 this year. This could be good considering our class spent so long working on the first unit for revision?

    Law on the other hand somewhat frightens me.

    Unit 1 has gone up from 79 to 82 (ouch)
    Unit 2 has gone up from 70 to 72 (ouch)

    AQA has screwed over law students </3

    But the boundaries are different to 2015?

    On my browser it says "page not found". Is this because the servers are down?

    Is it OCR Physics A you are talking about?
    Can't be, they are extremely low, too low in fact. I'm guessing the mark scheme is extremely strict
