    Can anyone make sense of the Edexcel C3 and C4 grade boundaries? There are '01' boundaries and then '01r' boundaries - what does this mean?

    (Sorry if anyone's posted about this already)
    01 are the UK exams, 01r are the international ones with different papers for students in time zones of more than 6 hours than UK or something. It says so in the intro

    AQA Chemistry is higher than I would like, 80/100 for an A

    Edit; For Chem 4
    I hate Chem 4's grade boundaries. They used to be lower before 2012. Dunno what changed. :/

    Yeah also I think a few people got confused about the demand and supply curve shifting? I loved the question on regulations as well, although if it had come up in January's exam I would have failed since I didn't revise regulations lol.

    I thought 49 seemed pretty average? Since its the highest, i'm guessing that a lot of people must have done pretty well then. I hope i've done enough to get an A
    yeah there was that too , i think the essay has saved me on that exam if i'm honest , although i don;t know for sure and we will see tomorrow morning

    nah , 49 is the highest it has ever been for an A. its usually around 46/47 out of 60 for the A but i dunno... like you said it must mean everyone has done well , so who knows

    I know how you feel, they seem really high
    For my Physics exam 64 marks is B but for Chemistry 64 marks is a C, it seems unfair but I'm guessing there were lots of people who did well in Chemistry, that or AQA just hates students lol

    Yeah, a lot of people came out of that exam very unhappy at my school and it shows! Thanks

    I need an A in Additional Further Maths AS, that's what Durham want. So, essentially, because of the way you have to arrange grades, if I get 93 UMS in M2, that will mean I have an A* in FM, so I have more flexibility with the modules I can put into my AFM grade. It's all rather confusing, but if I get that grade in M2, and haven't messed up my other exams too badly, I should be ok. If not.. I'm screwed!

    What about you? I'm sure the high grade boundaries reflect the fact that we've done better than expected .
    I only need 3 As for Imperial, but the Maths boundaries have me worried slightly.. Another DE candidate! Only 2 people in my school did DE haha we are quite rare. M2 was horrendous! Probably one of the worst exams I have ever sat >.< but hopefully I have done better than I felt *Sigh*. I am sure you will be okay, MEI always juggles around the modules in a satisfactory manner.

    I'm sure you'll do great . Haha I know, only 3 at mine! It's a pretty good module though, I just hated the coursework.. mainly because our teacher did nothing to help us! M2 was definitely the hardest of all the past papers, but I tend to find mechanics slightly easier - maybe that's a bad sign! Yeah I hope so!

    Oh ok, fair enough. But that's for UMS isn't it? Do you know where I can see the raw marks?

    So pleased with M2 and FP3 grade boundaries! I thought FP3 would be far higher as it was quite an easy paper. D1 is higher than I had expected though... (OCR)
