    For AQA Physics A, what is the overall AS level out of?
    I'm unsure if its 300 or 250 as the ISA is worth 20% with the exams 40% each.

    It'll be 300

    Yeah I did, what unit did you do? I did cold environments.

    Don't you think the boundaries are a bit high this time?

    Oh that's a tough unit! I did cultural diversity- a really weird question I felt :/

    They're the highest yet! 57/70 for an A seems really, really high. I'm sure I've dropped more than 13 marks, and I need an A for this exam, so yeah, I'm really worried now. I was even going for the A*, but 62/70? No way is that possible now

    The unit is quite interesting, the question was quite bizarre though. I guess we've both experienced that this time around

    Thing is though, grade boundaries are always determined by a bell-curve. Meaning that the same number of people will get As and A*s. And given that this is just one single 70 mark question, I think it's much harder to judge how we've all performed. I'm glad that the boundaries are higher there rather than unit 3 though, which would have a worse impact I think. Don't worry about it - chances are you haven't lost much from them being high - in fact, it might just be a reflection of people like you performing particularly well this time around Maybe they were generous as a result of the confusing questions? I was going for an A* too and I think I may have got it in unit 3 but like you, I'm not that confident about this unit. I'm actually resitting it (got a low B last time, that was me completely missing the point of the question), which doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

    I guess there's not long left, we'll find out soon enough

    I found this unit rather bizarre to be frank! Especially because I chose the human topic, I found it really weird to find any real theories to relate to, as well as very weird fieldwork (asking random people about their views on "culture", gosh that was so painful!). And then in the exam we have to produce a "report", I mean this required memorisation of quotes and references, which really fits more in the style of a coursework imo. Found the timing really hard as well :/

    Cheers for that reassurance, really gives me some hope! I somehow managed to get 108 for unit 3 in January, so that motivated me to seek that A*... But unit 4... It's just weird!

    I'm sure you'll do well in both units dude; we will indeed find out tomorrow. Just dreading that moment we find out!

    Does anyone else do OCR economics? F581 boundaries are extremely low, not too sure whether thats good or not :/
    afternoon !

    aye 44/60 , looks good but who knows... im not suprised to be honest , it was a hard paper and the question about income elasticities and the second to last question were really difficult haha - i loved the essay though , although loads of people found that hard.

    what do you think to the F582 boundaries ? 49/60 is the highest ive ever seen for an A , so annoyed by that !

    Edexcel economics has risen for A levels by a mark I guess. From 70 to 71 for an A in ECON4 but I guess that's not a lot :L . Really hoping for an A in economics but tbh I think this results day il be getting ABB/BBB/BBC :/
