    corrupt markers. everyone who didnt do so well on this paper and initially thought you would do well please request a marking script to see exactly where you lost marks, just ask your exams officer more about it. aqa questions repeat themselves hence you can work out roughly where you made the mistakes

    I personally think AQA screwed us over with grade boundaries.
    I got 40/60 in the EMPA, which, when converted is equal to 36/50. Previous grade boundaries for the EMPA have been 31 and 33 respectively for an A, because with ISA's you can do two and the best one counts, where as you cant with the EMPA. This year they decided to put the boundary for an A up at 40 and 37 for a B. **** AQA!

    i got 54 ums which is 32 raw marks (grade D). to get a B on that paper you need 40 marks. aha yes i must have counted wrong, so i needed 3 raw marks for a C, 8 raw marks for a B.

    on my coursework i was 1 raw mark off a B, so chuffed, all those ums points are crucial.

    240 is for an A. 240 * 2 = 480 for the whole A-Level, you got 246 this year so 480 - 246 = 234, which is your target for A2, its a high B
