    They seem quite good. I see that they are identical to the grade boundaries of 2003, as "AQA saw no need to change them". I hope they do see a "need" to change them this year, but I doubt it.

    If anyone is interested (and doesn't want to go to the link and work it out for themselves ) here are 2003/2004 boundaries (including coursework marks) ~

    A* = 82%
    A = 67%
    B = 55%
    C = 43%

    i think i have worked this out correctly but, coz i got full coursework mrks thats 20%, so if i work off 82% for an A* i need to get 78% right out of that paper, which is 106 out of 135, which is what the examiners reports says yay! i worked it out right, lol thats was confusing, but as i am crap at chem papers an din my mocks got like 65% i dont think i;ll get A*, lol

    I think the previous poster meant that even with full marks on the coursework, it only gives scope for you to acheive about 6% less than the grade boundaries to meet them, despite "counting" for 20%.
