    this one had an absolute **** for an essay , plus a couple of weird questions in the first section. that tbh should be enough to lower boundaries to like 46 ish , but no cos it's OCR ,let's stick the ****ing paper at the highest boundary ever ****ing recorded !

    hahaha im gonna smack a wall in a minute lol - yeah you'll have got 76 easily bud
    I know the essay was awful. The first section had some nice but some annoying questions nonetheless, 1 of the comment questions caused me trouble so I'm not putting high hopes for high ums. OCR make us wait until the morning for an awful boundary -.-

    Lool I don't blame you, and cheers!

    What really stood out was in Macro, there was no AD/AS diagram question. So how the grade boundaries are so high, I don't know because usually those diagram questions are free marks.

    The joke is, that I got the diagram question wrong in micro though. Should have shifted both Demand and Supply but I just shifted one.

    Isn't it so typical of Edexcel to not publish their grade boundaries yet, on their twitter it said it would have been published at 00.01!

    AQA Geography a bit lower

    AQA PE a lot higher, in fact an A last year would get you a B.

    OCR Latin is quite bog standard, maybe a little lower than expected

    Edexcel Maths I think is very nice

    Having seen these my new prediction will be - AABB

    Tell you what, they're really nice, but if we all get bad results now then we'll know just how badly we've done to have gotten such a low mark. But hopefully that won't happen!
    Oh dear The whole country must have found these June exams reasonably tough!

    Yeah definitely, a bit dissapointed at the effect S1 has on my FM average but its not that bad, econ is the one that stands out but who needs a-level economics for a maths degree :ninja:. It's only 1 out of 5 at the end of the day, I'd happily go to Warwick nearly as much as Cambridge.

    I noticed this also, though there were quite a few nice questions on inflation which were really easy to answer, I liked also that protectionism as I recall was only really a theme in the essay? and other then that the question that threw me off was the comment on macroeconomic objective one.

    Ah well whats done is done

    The chemistry papers confused me a lot

    The only subject I feel confident with is AQA Geography.
    AQA Env Studies could be the reason I don't get into uni. Envs3 was the hardest exam I have ever sat and yet the boundaries have increased
    And as for Edexcel English Lit, looks like I have to wait even longer before I find out how screwed I am!

    i reckon , they might be marking that essay really really nicely. because apart from Q1B , there was nothing in that first section that should have really tripped you up unless you made a silly mistake or something.

    where a significant amount of marks wouldve been lost , would have been on the essay. those marks lost + the marks that people lose in section A ( and majority lose atleast 2-4 ) wouldve made for a low-ish grade boundary , but by marking that essay very nicely it's caused the boundary to go higher if you see what i mean ?

    AQA Geography boundaries aren't too bad I don't think, although an A* is now out of the question I think. What do you think?

    Same S1 is worrying me, Cambridge look heavily on that for Econ according to the Corpus Admissions tutor.

    I think there was a question on protectionism early one. Like 1b, I may be wrong though. The macro economics objective one was a bit ok, definitely harder than the other questions but yeah, what's done is done.
