I suppose it all depends on how you found the paper but looking at all the past papers for the last 4 years, this one and jan 06 have been by far the hardest. Im hoping/thinking around 75%+ is an A for this paper. What do you guys think?

Yeah, probably 75-80% - Normally around that.

Paper was out of 72 correct? So around 56 marks would be an A.

I was talking about the OCR MEI S1, but really they're all very similiar when it comes to grade boundaries.

Also, for an A overall, do you think if you got around 75% in the S1 then near 100% in C1 and C2, you could still get a good A?

If are required to get 80% UMS to get an A grade, then i think it is same to assume that if you attain 100% in two examinations, and then a reletively low A grade in your S1 examination that you would be walking out with (100+100+75/3) 91%. Which is a comfortably high A grade.

What are you talking about?
You might think that you did everything correct except for one question for instance, but in reality people do not get more then 50% and still walk out with an A.

so u think raw mark for an A will be much lower? I always thought you had to get around 80% (in terms of raw marks) to get an A in a paper.

i think to get an A grade you need to average an overall of at least 80% from the total marks.......

so 80% of 216(72 x 3) =173 marks from 3 units

so i guess you could get 100% in c1(72 marks) and c2(72 marks) and still get an A with 29 marks in s1

lol.....but what are the chances of that?

I think it'll be 75% + because it was a hard paper.

I know it's supposed to be 80% for an A, but don't they do something with the raw marks to make it so its scaled to 80%? I have no clue..all of these marks confuse me totally.

Yes, they do scale it but 80% in Raw Marks is always more than 80% in UMS Marks (sometimes equal to).

yeh. raw marks for an A in jan and june 2005 was 54 and 56, and those papers were pisss easy, so this S1 boundary should be pretty low.
