    Obviously, coursework, specification, exam difficulty.... dependant.

    But I think it is about 80% for A* normally. And 70% for A, 60% B, 50% C. (on Higher).

    My physics teacher was standing over me for about 10 minutes he really put me off, reading all the lovely rubbish I was writing :rolleyes:

    I did ocr biology and i didn't find it bad at all. Most people finsihed before the time and were lying down or flapping thier papers!!! The heat was the worset part, one girl fainted in the middle!!!

    I just hope it cooks down and the rest of the papers are like that. I'm dreading the extension ones!!!

    I did AQA Biology. Nothing too hard really. I stupidly got a question on blood transfusions wrong... I thought O blood could accept any other kind, but actually that's AB and O can only accept O. Ah well, only one mark lost so far...

    AQA double award (co-ordinated) and it went fine. The A* mark is usually about 75% (for that specification).
