    I am so confused.

    He's saying that Edexcel went through a template style change this year which is evident from the A-Level grade boundaries. Don't worry. These GCSE boundaries are real.

    Imagine it's a typo and they actually meant to make the A* boundary 180 rather than 170...




    You're welcome

    In all seriousness though, I am so desperate that I'm actually hoping that they meant to write 160. I guess that seems more in line with last year's A* boundary of 155.

    Thanks, I can read. Can you?

    I was saying that 85% seems standard for an A* at GCSE, and that it's higher at A Level.

    I would agree with you but it was 155 last year and that's a huge jump

    No. That's only with UMS at A-Level.

    They honestly sound so fake because though ppl did find it easier than last year's there is no way they could do 170 for an a*- that's mad!
    I was told that if I wanted an a* ( which is impossible if this is all true) I could lose 40 marks altogether and still get it
    Also a lot of the really clever ppl would have already sat the exam early

    You do not know that you have missed out on it.
    Don't put too much stock in unofficial mark schemes. It is hard to judge method marks.

    The grade boundaries are there for a reason. They are so high because the majority of people this year seem to have done so well they were forced to push it up so they don't have an overwhelming percentage of people getting A*.

    It shows that teachers and students are thoroughly becoming better at preparing for exams. Your A* may not be out of the window yet. You will not know until tomorrow (I hope I get an A* as well!). Good Luck!!
