    Hey Matt quick question !

    I saw the grade boundaries for RS on edexcel it says max raw mark is 84 but wasn't the test out of 80? Is the extra +4 marks punctuations, spelling etc? How do you think the examiners would award those 4 marks I need all 4 marks if I want to sniff the A* overall.
    I think it was out of 84? Because I remember it being an weird number (i.e. not ending in a 0 or 5), but yes there are 4 marks for spelling and grammar. They would most likely split these marks over the questions you answered, to gain the mark you have to have few if any errors in spelling/grammar in the question, and they'd do this for each question, good luck

    I'm nervous about Science because I either do really well or really badly, don't ever really hit the middle ground

    I'm nervous about English and History too

    Have any other boards released their grade boundaries yet or just Edexcel?
