    Edexcel - pick random paper - judge on handwriting - throw it on big "done" pile in the middle of the room. :laugh:

    lol. Haven't they been working on some electronic way of throwing the papers or something? I hear that picking and throwing could take them some miniscule time or effort.

    Getting personal, but they may as well do given the range of articles about them in newspapers this week. If you haven't seen it yet, look at the thread about GCSE RE in this section to see what I mean.

    I'm taking RE at A-Level, but it dosen't affect me thankfully. (Breaths a sigh of relief), but I agree with what you're saying. The grade in RE could make the difference between someone achieving the sought after 5 GCSEs at grades A*-C, which could affect whether they are allowed to enter sixth form or college, so it is very significant.

    There is something simular about Grade Boundaries in the thread entitled ''shocking grade boundaries''. I do exams with AQA, but I've searched their site and nothing seems to be appearing - am i missing something?
    :confused:
