    LITB1 boundaries are really low as usual. That means absolutely nothing when AQA and English are involved :unimpressed:

    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.
    True but I wouldn't place full emphasis on it. University stats is vastly different to a-level stats. My S2 luckily mitigates the poor stats performance but I can see why if you only have S1 that it could be bad.

    1b was to do with ciricular flow of income I believe

    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 ?
    But that's the thing, mark schemes for the 18 marker is so vague. They say, don't really say how it works so the marks could vary a hell of a lot. If may have been marked nicely but then you could be the odd one who got a harsh marker.

    I mean doing mock 18 markers in school, one teacher would give 18/18 and she marks OCR Econ papers but the other would give 12/18 and both could justify why so they were both right if you see what I mean.

    Oh right it was circular flow of income now I think about it.

    I'm sure I did well on S1 but you know how maths is. One accuracy error in 1c could cost you accuracy marks in every question up to 1e since it's not always follow through.

    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?
    I think they are quite good. I'm glad they decreased the boundary after the shocking questions they asked in unit 3! Seeing as I got an A overall at AS I think I might be able to get it again at A2. Fingers crossed. Although I would love the A* I doubt I will get it.

    Why is D2 not included in the OCR list of A2 modules (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/142072-...-june-2013.pdf)? Bearing in mind that it has been for all other exam seasons.

    yer agreed, but that's my other point, there not as low as other boundaries? although I suppose most recent boundaries are always higher due to teachers/students getting familiar with the course.

    Looking at grade boundaries has calmed me down for some exams, and done absolutely nothing to relieve the horrible anxiety about others.

    I am really happy with the f215 boundaries, I was worried that they would be similar to January's which were just horrible, but these seem pretty fair actually.
    Yeah I agree, that would have been scary :/ Can't argue with it! What grade are you hoping for in F215?
