A 60 - 74
B 50-60
C 40-50

Edexcel Double Award Science ( CO-Ordinated)

Edexcel Double Award Science ( CO-Ordinated)

A* 82 +
A 70-82

That seems unnecessarily high. I am pretty sure that this is what AQA requires of you in Double-Award science:

A* = 77/90
A = 65/90
B = 52/90
C = 41/90

I am almost certain this is what boundaries will be for AQA Double-Award science, as they were just slightly lower last year and I've compared questions from 2004 with questions I answered in my external exams last week and the 2005 questions seem just that bit more "thorough". By that I mean that the 2005 questions required answering in slightly more depth and there were less calculations. In my opinion calculations are easier than explaining something in words.
8. All my exam boards are different.

Edexcel geography is usually 83% for an A* (was 78% last year).
9. Mate ive put the science as a percentage not a mark out of 90
10. Oops my bad... Yeah percentage wise that looks pretty darn accurate.
11. no not edexcel maths higher at all ... paper was much easier then past ones so A* will be in the region of 80% +

It better not be...this year's papers were much harder than last years, so hopefully the grade boundaries will be much lower. They wouldn't raise A* percentage to over 80% would they?
13. well in previous years - and i mean 2000 and beyond its been 82% with coursework
14. u really think last years were easier... i thought last years were really challenging - was reflected in the A* boundary being 61%

That's why I find it quite depressing - i did last year's papers and got 90 but this year i missed loads of questions out so will probably not get the much-needed A*. Oh well. Yeh, i think i found last years papers easier because it ahd loads of algebra which im good at whereas im useless when it comes to shape & space, and lots of it were in this years papers!
16. wow 90 thats impressive - i thought igot that in this years paper but honestly thought it was quite easy as in the first paper the last few question involved powers which normally appears at the beginning

but iguess everyone has different strengths in maths and luck of questions

Seriously last year's paper was only 61% for an A*? Woah. I thought it was in the 80s.

I did that paper, so don't really know about this year's...but from what I've heard, I think that this year's would be higher than last year's definitely. But I wouldn't think much over 80%. Maybe around 80%?
18. Last years maths papers were much harder than this years, was very difficult last year, i felt i completely ****ed my exam in maths last year and still came out with an A, French was also very difficult last year.

The boundary for a B is nowhere near 50%, much closer to 40% if that means anything to anyone.
19. Remember that if all depends on how people do in the exams. For example people mentioned the maths paper last year. That was very difficult so they made the grade boundires very low (something like 40% for an A) because of the low results. Theres no telling/ We just have to sit back and wait
20. Our esteemed examiners are totally unpredictable when playing around with boundaries.
