    wouldn't it make sense to gauge the marks and the boundaries off of the 2015 Grade Boundaries since its nearer to our actual exam? In that case you got a B2
    The grade boundaries change depending on how dum the population is and how hard the test is. Therefore, he probably did get an A. However, I think it would be best to gage yourself off 2015 papers.

    how many hours have you been working? i find it so hard to work in the day, have to stay up at night (hence the 11.30pm post)
    I find it super hard to work during the day too. Normally my prime activity hours are from 00:00 - 06:00, though I'm normally up till about 08:00.

    I've done one hour finishing off my History textbook, and now I'm gonna spend another hour finishing my History timeline and compiling a list of important quotes.

    I generally do 2-3 hours a day, but I'm well ahead of most people.

    I think it would be a good idea to revise all the content then past papers then cram the whole content night before but with enough rest. I mean its not like you'll lose information

    I agree with the first bit but I wouldn't want to cram for my real exams. I don't think I'll need to because I'm revising quite a bit.

    I agree. If you do it properly we've got enough time to bag those A stars and As.
