    WTF Edexcel.

    FP1 and D2 boundaries so high yet D1 that low
    FP1 grade boundary is very low- for an A anyway.

    For an A its low but 74 for 100 UMS and 67 for 90 is a bit harsh imo. I actually found this paper much harder than D1 and D2 and harder than all the past papers.

    The last two questions on FP1 were pretty difficult so I thought the grade boundaries would reflect that which it has for the A boundary but not really for 90 UMS and 100 UMS.

    Fair enough, I'm not doing D1 and D2 until next year anyway.

    I'm in the exact same boat as you, want to apply for History oxbridge and I think I might've only got a high B. Don't worry too much, it's the first year of a new course and no one will have aced it, I guarantee. Oxbridge will take into account the situation, I mean, we didn't even get the textbook until 4 weeks into the course! As long as you get a decent predicted grade in it we should be ok.
    Extremely true! The boundaries seem a little ridiculous though. I mean, considering it's a new course, and nobody really knows what they're doing. It's not like we had past papers, past examples, etc to work from. It was trial and error, more than anything, and I dare say this year won't be much different.

    I found AS easy though - but the exams, given the grade boundaries and stupid mistakes I made (timing was a huge issue for me this year)... there goes my Oxbridge dreams

    Your Oxbridge dreams aren't gone at all. Just wait until tomorrow and see what happens, Oxbridge understand the situation. Also bear in mind plenty of applicants didn't even do the AS this year and are doing it all next year.

    To be honest, I feel kinda sorry for those who aren't doing it. I feel like it's been a real learning experience and equipped me for what A2 will bring (which will be harder still, but I feel like I have the 'foundations' down almost). But I suppose they'll think the same thing - just the inverted form - , because they may have started A2 when I, and others doing the AS exams, had to revise, revise, and wait for it... revise.

    Thanks so much! I just don't think I'll be able to apply with ABB or ABC or ACC or BCC

    Might apply post-A2 though!

    All the boundaries are the opposite way round to what I want them to be! S1 (Edex) is so low! And D1, but FP1 and M1 which were the two I struggled in are quite high (especially M1, relative). Also, AQA physics looks a bit high for my liking...

    Anyway good luck to everyone tomorrow!
