    It honistly will be hard to tell, as there has not been a similar paper in like the history of S3, hence expect boundaries to be lowered by like 1-6 marks (i hope).

    As the other poster said, hard to tell. FP3 last year might be a good model to look at; also not loads of people taking it and also a hard paper. I'd expect the boundaries to not be amazingly dissimilar to that (with the a* probably shifted up a little bit).

    Is there a link to the FP3 page?

    You can just look up the 2014 grade boundaries. I believe the A* Droped to like 63 from its normal threshold.

    Hi guys, looking back at this thread is like looking at another lifetime. Grade boundaries will be released on 12th August (6 days) and, personally, the S3 grade boundary being very very low is pretty much a dealbreaker for me...

    Enjoy the rest of your hols (if you can) before the big day...

    Same here! I'm not overly confident I've got 90+ in enough modules but aslong there is a significant dip in S3 boundaries to account for that strange part c 5 marker I should have it! Good luck!

    Weird to think it's been nearly 3 months since results for this exam, let alone the exam itself..
