    I've worked out that the link for the edexcel grade boundaries tonight are going to follow this link:

    https://qualifications.pearson.com/content/dam/pdf/Support/Grade-boundaries/A-level/1606_GCE_A_level_Grade_Boundarie s.pdf

    Obviously it won't work at the moment but at midnight it will all change... :P
    2013 boundaries didn't follow the same pattern
    so not exactly

    Hi just looking for some advice. I have applied to Plymouth (my firm) to do Early Childhood studies. I need 280 points with a minimum of 160 from two A levels which would be two C's. I already have a Distinction* in my btec which is 140 points. I have seen it in clearing and don't think it is a very competitive course but am worried about the two a levels being C's, how likely is it to be to accepted with two D's, 40 points off what I need from the a levels but only 20 points off the overall amount I need????? Thank uuuu and gd luck eveyone!!!!!

    Does this definitely happen? The guy who posts all the AQA papers/markschemes/examiners' reports tried to get them last year but it didn't work.
    It says on AQA website those with access to e-AQA (eg teachers) can see the grade boundaries at one minute past midnight

    Hopefully the grade boundaries for AQA sociology are really low, preferably low enough that it will be possible for me to get an A with 5 marks from my unit 4 exam :adore::adore:

    In that case, hopefully they get posted.

    They'll come out at one minute past midnight, they'll probably be leaked at two minutes past midnight

    Apart from the one marker from the first question and the last question, I thought C3 2016 was quite straightforward. Although, the last question was almost a complete repeat of a question from 2006. Nothing that hard to spot at all if you compare it to June 2013 and June 2015 in my view.

    C3 June 2016 was doable if you did enough past papers. 2013 and 2015 singled out a big number of people fairly quickly when it came to their unusual range and domain questions and sneaky trigonometric identities in both papers.

    C4 June 2015 was an absolute bloodbath and still shocked people with the grade boundaries. Therefore, I can only assume that with a standard C4 paper set in 2016, they will be merciless.

    C2 2016 was unprecedentedly easier than 2015 and I think that will likely have very high grade boundaries.
    No I don't agree with C2 having a vet high grade boundary. Higher than last year obviously but the hard questions at the end will have stumped people. I'd say 63 for an A. It could potentially be 65 IF the mark scheme is kinder this year (ie. Giving out method marks galore) but not higher.

    Nearly all of my exams (AQA Physics A, OCR Chemistry A, OCR non-MEI Further Maths) were quite nice this year.

    Around midnight for Edexcel. AQA will either be leaked tonight (they are released at 00:01) or available in the morning for all to see I believe

    Should be midnight (an hour) for Edexcel. I swear someone posted the AQA ones, maybe 9am but it's at some point tomorrow morning.
