    What mark did you drop on the MC?

    The very last one didn't know it was mechanical strength I said it was so the current went into the sheath, I don't think I had seen a question like it.

    Yeah, it was assumed in the question. Have you not seen the paper yet?

    Haha thanks! It's funny how many repeated questions were in that paper.

    Questions 3, 5, 6, 10, 11, 15, 18 and 20 had all come up in a very similar form, if not the exact same before on past papers!

    General thoughts on grade boundary for A*?
    Possibly 60-61. The multiple choice was easier than last year but the written was slightly harder in my opinion. It might balance out to give the same sort of boundaries

    I agree, the multiple choice seemed slightly easier than last year's! Although there were a few questions which might have caught people out, like the 4R one and the couple question (considering couples aren't in the A2 part of the spec).

    I can't see the grade boundaries going up to be honest, I think that they will remain around 60 for the A* mark or maybe even go down 1 or 2 due to AQA's mistake.

    24/25 is amazing! I know for sure I lost atleast 7 marks Even if you made silly mistakes on section B you'll still come out with top marks
