    Does anyone know the overall grade boundaries for higher? The coursework is worth 60% and the written is worth 40%. Someone told me its 90% for an A* and 85% for an A. Are the boundaries really this high?

    -Thanks in advance for anyone who gets the grade boundaries!

    This is AQA, I think generally the boundaries are higher. Anyway hopefully someone knows the boundaries. I will be pissed off if the boundaries above are true. I put in effort in my coursework so I didn't have to revise much for the exam. I ended up with 57% out of the 60, hoping I would only need 20% out of the fourty in the exam. If it turns out that the boundaries are really high, I will end up with a B. Which is pretty pathetic considering how much effort I put into the coursework. I would accept a B if I didn't put in as much effort. My workrate deserves so much more!

    Maca, you need 75% on the paper to get an A. 100% on the paper won't get you an A*.

    AQA suck. Even for French they suck. Any AQA subject I do sucks with grading. I found out a random fact about the AQA and OCR comparrison. 51% of the people who do OCR French get an A*-C compared to a low 32% who do AQA French get an A*-C.

    Bottom line is that if you do OCR or exam boards with similar boundaries, you have nearly double the chance of achieving the grade you want than if you do AQA.
