    I was thinking the same too. One other thing that doesn't seem right is how only 4 people have been caught out as a result. Where are the other 36? It's a messed up scenario, but it is only fair that AQA assures all other Sociology students that this problem was dealt with correctly. At the end of the day, this will result in increased grade boundaries for the rest of us
    There was actually a person on TSR a few weeks ago saying she was being investigated due to this... she didn't know this was going to happen so probably most people were innocent in that group. A few people getting better than what they would've otherwise won't increase the grade boundaries... and even if you know the questions but haven't revised anything during the year, it's worthless anyway.

    I don't think those that are innocent should have their future jeopardized because of this. I didn't mean to sound as if I wanted everyone caught out- only if this thing was planned, which I thought at first.

    The main point is you shouldn't worry about grade boundaries i suppose getting a harsh examiner is worse than high grade boundaries in sociology (i do science so i don't really know)

    Thanks there. You're right with the examiner thing, but I'm more worried because I completely messed up in Unit 4. Timing was not great, and I spent less time on the essay question worth the most marks
    I remain slightly optimistic though

    I do feel slightly sorry for her, but how what if this whole thing was planned? Considering the person who leaked it would've known about the clash?

    Pretty sure AQA would've done a lot of digging too
    I was in the group chat, it wasn't planned
    Infact the girl that leaked it lives in Ireland

    I don't think you should advertise that, especially with your RL name on your profile. Better to be safe than sorry.

    So I was thinking, how did they track the girl in that article? Surely someone must have snitched names to the exam board in the hope the blame gets put on them instead of the rest of the students..?

    Just being curious; can Scottish people speak with that aristocratic British accent as well, if they want to?
    Yes. I lived in Scotland for a good 10ish years but now my Scottish accent is completely gone.

    They will not be out until about a day before results day.

    Edexcel yes, OCR no. OCR boundaries are usually published at around 08:30.

    Edexcel are usually on point and sometimes release them before midnight, AQA last year was about 6:30 and OCR about 9:00
