Will the grade boundaries be higher if the exam was harder? I found the physics exam much harder than the biology and chemistry, so does this mean the boundaries will differ much??

I sat the OCR 21st exams too and I found them a lot harder than last year's series, and so did roughly 97% of everybody else I spoke to. :P So yeah, when a lot of students find an exam a lot harder, this results in lower marks which means that grade boundaries must be lowered to keep it 'fair' for everyone. Grade boundaries for OCR 21st Century are usually extremely low anyway so I wouldn't worry too much I mean, for physics, usually about 50% is sufficient enough for an A* :L which is great! XD

Last year they were pretty low, as that series were harder than previous and many found them harder this year than last especially physics so they should go down, one good thing about ocr is they are good for balancing it out tougher paper =lower boundaries
