    What do you think an A and a B would be?
    If they lower A* to 39 A will be 34 and B 26 (but that only happened in june 2012 when the spec was new so i doubt it will happen again)
    If A* is 45 A will be 37 and B 29 (if they decide to be mean and think the paper was fine)
    If A* is 42, A will be 36 and B 28 (this is something that is likely to happen if the overall statistics show low grades of students then they will have to lower the grade boundaries)
    If A* is above 45 we all are f***ed

    Wrong 0.7% because 0.666 rounds to 0.7 not 0.6

    I personally think that this year, A* will be 41/60. Here are my reasons:

    In June 2012, A* was 39/60. Some people may say that it was because it was a new spec. However, in June 2014, A* was 44.
    Given that today's exam was possibly the hardest ever in the series, I think A* being 41/60 a pretty good prediction
    What would you say a B grade would be?

    Lets pray the grade boundaries are low considering the paper was really hard!

    Firstly, June 2012 it was not 39. It was 26 (Yes, I know!!)
    Secondly, absolutely no way that this year's paper is the hardest ever. June 2012 is nasty, and January 2013 was an absolute *******.
    41 is really low given the last 3 years have been 45, 44 and 47
    I can assure you that in June 2012, A* was 39/60.

    Umm if you put 0.66 then you did x100 or else you'd have got 0.0066! All the people saying 67% are wrong :p:
    oops made a mistake in writing that, I got 0.0067 and didn't times by 100

    If I get As in B2 & B3 what grade am I looking at roughly considering I got 38/50 in my biology ISA, got roughly 22 marks on this exam. :/

    Categoric data is like red, blue, white... You can't plot it on a scatter diagram.
