    It was probably the easiest ever though, so boundaries were to be expected. I think i only dropoed marks on eye calc. and i cobsider myself bad at nedical physics

    Same, reckon I got a very low A in unit 5 (astro), but unit 4's boundary is very generous. The ISA boundary is ridiculous though

    To be fair I got 45/50 which was pretty high for me I was aiming for an A and I am not usually good at the ISAs I got a B last year maybe loads of other students got that sort of mark.It still has to be moderated though and the grade boundaries are really worrying because you don't have to lose many marks to go from A to E, lets hope AQA don't harshly moderate or it will be a disaster.

    I also got 45 this year (in the pendulum one) which I thought would be an A* (going by last years boundaries). I wish my school would just let us cheat like other schools :/

    My teacher is a moderator so I don't think my mark will change much

    I hate the unit 5 ones

    I reckon it'll be close. I think I'll be just short of an A* :/
