    Do you think the grade boundaries for science gcse this year will increase or decrease? In the June 2013 paper the grade to get an A* was 52 marks and an A was 45 marks so do you think think this years paper will require more marks for those grades?

    I have a feeling that all the grade boundaries will decrease slightly to adjust to the move to linear sittings. Overall, see how they compare with the past papers and predict grade boundaries from there.

    i did c2,b2,p2,b3,p3,c3

    c2 will be quite high... 52 for an A*, 45 A
    b2 will be very low... 46 for an A*, 40/39 A
    p2 will be average... 50 for an A*, 42 A

    c3 will be alright... 50 A*, 44 A
    p3 will be slightly lower... 49 A*, 43 A
    B3 will be lower but still high... 52 A*, 46 A

    This is what i think... i think i will get B,A,A,A,A*,A* ( i made hella lot mistakes on C2
