    Do you think that thereason why grade boundaries are low is bcz of mark schemes/examiners are more harsher?:confused:
    I'm pretty sure they are low because its the first time we have sat them and we may have done badly collectively since its new. There are news articles about it on BBC Nd the guardian btw

    I think the reason that the boundaries are low is because we're the first ones to do this new specification and I wouldn't have thought that the mark schemes would change much in terms of how specific they are since science is quite an objective subject...

    By the way, I've changed my avatar if anyone's noticed :cool:

    Biology I am not surprised tbh the paper was definitely harder than chem and physics ,, how does everyone feel with these boundaries?

    I'd have preferred physics lower than chem but tbh I'm safe

    I'm not too worried about chem and bio but not so sure for physics because it was the hardest paper for me and also we were never taught how to do the coursework or anything. Can't wait for tomorrow
