    OCR Geography

    A* 85
    A 68
    Lol. Forget It. They have never had an A* boundary over 80%. Its always been A* = 80% or less. And this year's paper was deemed, 'reasonable but hard in places' by my geography department. No way will it be that high.

    Ps. This is Geog Spec A

    Is that just for Geography or for all subjects?

    Just a guess, don't worry :rolleyes:

    OCR Maths (higher):

    A*= 76%
    A= 61%
    B= 48%
    C= 34%

    Science (AQA, Higher):

    A*= 79%
    A= 68%
    B= 54%
    C= 40%

    What have been the Grade Boundaries for Edexcel Science in past years and i felt that after doing the past papers in mock the actual papers were slightly harder so whatever the boundaries were they will not increase or decrease by much?

    Unfortunately there's not that much point trying to second guess these weird examiner people. Just have to hope for the best...

    Doesn't the exam cover all three sciences so the grade boundary would be for the whole paper?

    I personally found Biology the hardest, although I was annoyed with all the friggin papers due to the obligatory crap questions with nothing to do with scientific facts.

    :ditto: For me biology was the hardest too, while most people came out of the exam saying that it was easy! I found it especially hard as I had to guess literally all the answers, and couldn't use what I had learnt during the course.

    yeh. biology was quite a crap exam. i think physics was the one that strayed least from the spec and it didnt hav 2 many "unscientific" questions".

    That was so annoying about the Biolodgy questions being not about science and the physics being all about science. I learnt loads of science for biolodgy and i cant do physics and i was hoping it would be un sciency and then grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr........

    I hope the OCR maths boundaries are not that high!
    That was really annoying aswell cos i did last yrs paper (when the grade boundary was 65%) and got 87%. Then i know that i didnt do aswell in the exam, unless i got A LOT of method marks.

    I thought the grade boundries were based on the results rather than the difficulty of the tests.

    For example they will have a certain quota for A* and a certain quota for A because they don't want too many people getting too high a grade otherwise people could claim GCSEs were getting too easy.

    Could be, but I've heard people say that UMS marks are always the same for each grade, however, the difficulty of the paper decides how the RAW marks are scaled...
