    English always has high grade boundaries; its annoying. :/ ugh. What about any other subjects? I doubt english will have any difference in its grade boundaries tbh

    You have to be specific. Grade boundaries are always different for each subject and each exam board, and also which unit.

    My teacher advised that AQA English Lit are planning on raising their grade boundaries because they want to completely change the GCSE, and ned proof as to why it's not working, ie many people are failing. Then again, he could be saying that just to get us to work. Ah well, we shall see when the grade boundaries are released tomorrow

    It's the first time the unit 3 exams are being sat so they maybe low, and if we have done worse, would they bring the grade boundaries down?

    I predict:
    Edexcel Linear Maths: I think they will be higher then November 2012, but lower than March 2013

    Edexcel Triple Science: For the extension topics, high boundary for biology, and low-mid boundaries for chemistry and physics

    AQA English Lit: High, due to reforms and that nonsense

    I've forgotten the rest. Good Luck

    For the exams I took (all Higher):

    -AQA English Lit/Lang: Around the same as normal, maybe a little higher for Lit and a little lower for Lang (because of the fracas last year)

    -Edexcel Maths: Similar to normal (harder non-calc and easier calc)

    -Double Award Science: Low

    -Edexcel RS: Lower than normal

    -CIE French: Higher than normal

    -OCR Music: Please let them be low pleasepleasepleaseplease...

    -OCR Latin: Please let them be low pleasepleasepleaseplease...
