According to the developing language mark scheme, to get an A for each question, you would need 45/48 (90/96), which to me seems absolutely absurd. However, i did check on the AQA June 2014 grade boundaries, which states you would need to get 70/96 for an A and 80/96 for an A*.

On the mark scheme, the AOs are split into 6 bands, which according to my teacher, band 6 is the A, having to get 22/24 (A01) 15/16 (A02) and 8/8 (A03) for each question, which seems completely impracticable, being over 90%.

Has anyone sat this exam or can clarify what mark is needed to achieve the A?

To get an A overall, i need a high B in the exam, having got a B at AS (basically everyone died in my english department last year) and an A* in the language investigation, so it's really touch and go at the moment.

Thanks.
