    The chemistry OCR grade boundaries are, but the biology unit 1+2 are orite. Aren't they?[/QUOTE

    Be careful - you don't know how they've been marked.In fact i'm a little fearful of biology more than chemistry.Low boundaries = harsh marking.
    Thats true as well oh..

    I think it's pretty high too. I'm absolutely dreading seeing my overall Chemistry grade. What do you need to get into uni?
    I need 3As, but it would be nice to get an A*. Did you take the EMPA? The boundaries for that are pretty low so hopefully it will compensate for my abysmal CHEM5.

    Will track automatically update if you keep hitting refreshing or do you need to log out and back in to see any changes?

    No, I did Unit 6T. My teacher told me I did well but didn't tell me what I got even though I kept asking. Unfortunately his definition of "well" is never equal to mine. My Chemistry teachers seem to think I'm only capable of a B/C even though I got an A at AS. I need an A in Chemistry to apply to uni. The rest of the class got to sit Unit 6X because they did badly, but not me because I apparently didn't need to resit it. I'm hoping I actually did do well and that they didn't ruin my chances of getting an A because of their own stupid judgement. Good luck with your results!

    I second that ! Put your best foot forward people .. I remember when I was anxious last year and didn't sleep .. do what you choose people .. if you don't sleep .. don't worry too much .. it'll be over within a day and if it doesn't go to plan .. thousands of people are in the same boat. Relax. Think. Enjoy

    Is it there not one for maths? As I've just tried it, and it only does a couple of subjects.
    Oh sorry. I only tried chemistry and maths as that's all I do with Edexcel

    Would I have to ring them, tell them to send them to me. Or would they just send them to me?

    Can't believe the Edexcel boundaries for units 5 Chemistry nd biology,

    69 for a flipping A?!? They cant just jump from numbers like 56 and 61 to ****ING 69!

    Is the class of 1994/95 A bunch of mini geniuses or something.

    Every a2 exam ive done has had the paper assigned the highest grade boundaries in its history, (January 73 For an A in Edexcel chemistry 4) And its happened again!

    Honestly can't believe my luck.
