The reason I put 169/200 for A*: I have seen so many posts on TSR of people saying 'I got [insert number between 160 and 170], will this be an A*??'. Unfortunately, exam boards are quite mean in which they will put the A* grade boundary just above the threshold so that many will miss out on the grade by one or two marks. It's happened to me before in November, I got 166 and A* was 167. They put this here because there were many like me with the 166 mark. So my rationale is that so many people are worried about getting an A* with marks mainly between 162-168, so I predict A* at 169.
What do you think you got?
2. Edexcel maths I think 160 A* 130 A 97-99 B 62 C

4. What do you guys think a B grade will be? I got around 110-120, is that enough?
5. Is 136 enough for an A for edexcel maths?

That'll be definitely a high B. A B is normally around 90-something.

The highest it has ever been for a grade B is 101 and that year the paper was so easy so based off the past 3 years I would say a grade B will be 96-99 as paper one was Hardish so well done you have most certainly got the B

How did you possibly get hold of the official mark schemes?

Someone leaked them
16. Oh my...
17. What a way to tell us...😂
18. Know anyone with the AQA mark schemes?

So the fact that the mark schemes have been leaked, means that all papers have been marked by now?

No

Not necessarily, but they are anyway. (the mark schemes are produced soon after the exam is created, I'm pretty sure) Most of them, at least.
20. In comparison with the papers from previous years,

AQA English Language Unit 1: 58/80 for an A*
AQA Physics 2: 42/60 for an A*
AQA Physics 3: 43/60 for an A*
AQA Biology 2: 46/60 for an A*
AQA Biology 3: 43/60 for an A*
Edexcel Maths: 165/200 for an A*
