    I looked at the grade boundaries for the January 2013 exam online and it said that it was 46/84 to get an A. Am I understanding this right as it seems incredulously low and my teacher told us that the usual grade boundaries are 72/84 to get an A (which seems a bit too high).

    In my mock I got
    15/21
    14/21
    26/42
    Total 55/84

    My teacher told me that this was a high C but according to AQA it would have been an A

    My teacher also said this however everyone is saying the grade boundaries are low, plus aqa could not lie haha

    That's weird. On my mock I had 39 and my teacher said that was a high E. (She was disappointed because I slept through the mock Lol.)
