You could try having a look at the examination board websites, although I just had a look and found it quite confusing. There is a previous post on the site which says that the grade boundaries for OCR maths, physics and chemistry as well as AQA computing are:
A=80%
B-70%
C=60%
D=50%
E=40%
It is likely that the grade boundaries are the same for all exams or at least similar. Good luck!

The truth is that there are no grade boundaries until all papers have been marked. The ones above posted by Helen are preliminary boundaries and should be used as a rough guide only.

Boundaries are calculated at the end of the marking process in accordance with a normal distribution curve to ensure that (to the left of the curve), few people get E's, (to the right of the curve) that few people get A's, and the middle of the curve (where most people will fall with a grade C).

Thanks for that help Unregistered. I try to help but sometimes I can only go on what others say. Thank you for helping clarify that point. Good luck in your exams if you have any.
