    Ok - Judging on the difficulty of the papers what do people think/or what usually is the A/A* grade boundary, for the overall exam as a percentage or whtever? This is for seperate sciences btw...

    OCR dont seem to show examiner reports on their website...

    Do you do OCR Double or Triple? Are the grade boundaries different?

    Really? Oh I'm so confused...

    What about the extension? Is there a separate grade boundary for the extension, or would this be added together to give a different, overall boundary for triple?

    I think extension is added onto it, and UMS is marked that say 70% = A* or whatever.

    Hmm I'm confused about triple/double grade boundaries.

    If the extension gets added on and it's harder, surely grade boundary overall for triple would be lower?
