    Only ray of hope are the AQA Biology unit 5 boundaries, 67/100 is the CAP mark
    I'm very worried though that we've collectively mucked up that paper, cos it (the 67/100 CAP mark) is the lowest out of all years', also it's 5 UMS lower than the second lowest (which is 72/100 that has stayed the same for the past 3 years). This is creepy...

    He's talking about the new AS.

    CHEM4 isn't too bad, 90/100 UMS cap is lowest ever. CHEM5 is a bit nasty, but I sort of expected that tbh.

    That's weird, I came out of that exam thinking it went really well and that grade boundaries would be high. I mean it's good they're low I suppose but it does make you wonder if we all mucked up the essay or something

    I don't get why the Unit 5 boundaries are so low The essay question I did (Importance of Ions) was absolutely beautiful!

    Exactly! It's not like the sciences or maths where I can be certain, history is really confusing.

    Looks like we'll just have to wait and see :/

    I feel the same. It was a standard paper with a really lovely essay question. Nearly everyone on the exam discussion thread of this exam agreed the boundaries would stay the same as the past 3 years if not even higher. This is really very surprising and worrying. I wonder what has gone wrong...
