    I did the Edexcel rs exam this year and found it really easy. I know over the last couple of years loads of people at my school got A's and A*'s in it even if they were only C grade students in other subjects. So no i don't think they'll do anything with the boundaries they tend not to interfere with rs.

    Don't worry about it! I did exactly the same (ran out of time in my first exam and left 4 questions blank) but my teacher said it would be absolutely find as long as you answered the other exam really well. I'm aiming for an A as well

    Unit 10 messed up big time, I was really upset at the time but then my RS teacher went through the grade boundaries and reassured me that I was fine and I could still get an A

    Yeah the grade boundaries seem to be really low and they never change so we should be fine! English lit is so hard to gauge your grade though!! At least geography and English have the coursework element as well

    It was 71 and 72 to get an A in unit 3 and 10 last year...... I have an A* in Geography coursework and an A in English coursework. Btw, are you a boy or a girl?
