    Why the hell do OCR never lower their grade boundaries for economics? They are pretty much always the same. I'm failing this crappy subject again.
    They really don't. 48 for micro in jan and then 49 for macro in june gtfo ocr

    What does the (R) mean, I think it means retake, but that isn't possible, for example Physics Unit 2 Edexcel was done once in 2013 but there are 2 boundaries, 6PH02 Physics At Work (Paper 01)6PH02 Physics At Work (Paper 01R).

    What is the difference between paper 01 and paper 01R? Does the R signify replacement? I ask regarding the edexcel maths papers (especially C3!). If it did signify replacement then the replacement for C3 has ended up having higher boundaries than the original which doesn't seem right because those that saw both were unanimous in thinking that the original was easier. The difference between the two in raw marks for each grade is about 10 marks?! Anyone know anything more on this?

    Has anyone else noticed that AQA have whacked up the Physics ISA grade boundaries this year for the first time in ages, cheeky *******s! And the Unit 1 grade boundaries are stupidly high
    Tbh we all expected the ISA to be an absolute joke. No surprise they increased it.

    It means international students as they sat a different paper in a different time zone.

    But they could still accept you. I can't get an A either so I am hoping for the B.

    Good thing Edexcel set the C3 grade boundaries quite low, given the disaster of a paper they gave us.

    They do international papers for those in other timezones; I'm not 100% but it might stand for 'Regional' or something and correspond to the international papers.

    You just said they increased it. Unless I'm missing something then you're contradicting yourself.

    But they have increased it, normally it's been at 43 for an A but it's 44. Not much, but 1 mark can make all the difference, especially in an ISA.

    Yeah I know, My point is that it's annoying they chose to increase it this year.
