    It did say in the video that (0,1) is one of many correct solutions? Correct me if I am wrong
    it says it is a solution but not the answer.

    Welcome! Glad you've joined the chat, it really helps me get through. I'm both nervous and excited but that's normal when it comes to something so big. It is taking so long!

    It's taking way too long, I think when its the 24th then maybe we'll feel more patient because of the grade boundaries being released.

    I don't think they will be lowered as I don't think this years paper was as hard as last years.

    The grade boundaries aren't going to be lenient in Maths and English.

    Remember next year in these subjects there is a new specification ranked 0-9 instead of A*-U. Meaning that they'll probably, I'm not entirely sure, make the grade boundaries high this year and make them low next year to make the other course look better or something I can't remember the reason my teacher told me.

    I'm sure it won't be too much of a rise but I know they'll rise as last year the Hannah's sweets question brought A* down to 155 in Maths, it's mean to go up to about 170-175 this year.

    Yeah, not surprised about last year. Let's hope that they're low enough to make me feel better :P

    I was thinking more like 130 for an A as it was slightly harder than 2013 and 2014 overall
