    Unlucky I did history unit 3 module C so I was quite happy, yours requires a higher mark for an A than mine does for an A* - but I'm guessing they're more generous on your paper. Geography unit 3 looks bad but that's actually average (iirc it was 72 in jan for an A*).
    I knew our paper was straightforward and that it would be higher than normal, but that 56/70 for an A is just evil. That's some comfort, although my hope is that the lower than usual boundary for Unit 4 geog will help to compensate a little :/.

    I did History Unit 3 Module A. I'm pretty tense now, I must say - I was hoping History was going to be the subject where I could get an A* to make my offer. That now looks very difficult...
    There may be lots of historians crying at my school tomorrow. Edexcel just cranked the boundary up to 11.

    Yup. F335 grade boundaries shot up by around 5 to 10 marks; I really don't know why, majority found it, at best, an average paper :/

    But even F332, 82/100 seems really high. They've been fluctuating so much, that it's hard to see if they have any consistency tbh

    Ignore what scaled means, it just refers to a comparision between raw and UMS. Use this table to find out what an A is:

    If they have access to the relevant login, then it would be now.

    Nope, at least I'll be in for less of a shock when I miss my offer tomorrow.

    The R stands for replaced paper!
