    I think it will be higher than 80% as the jan paper was 80% (48/60)and they said they will make the grade boundaries harder like 50/60 soo thats like 83%

    Who said? The exam board? (I think 48/60 like you said was a* on jan 2012): But also they must have a minumum of people getting grades, eg. if the exam is hard: lower the boundarys.

    Hopefully six marker won't be one of those "evaluate" ones; they're so tedious and marked so harshly.
