    Well he would say that. It's his job on the line.

    Dont u think one mark on the paper should equal on mark on UMS regardless of grade boundaries. I say this because is some instances the difference of one mark on a paper can be up to a difference of 5-10 marks on UMS.
    In reference to the one paper each year thing.....I think that the papers should be set fair enough so that if u get 80% u get an A.The whole idea of making papers harder but then changing the boundaries doesnt help us students...they think changing the boundaries makes it ok......it just panicks us and makes us underperform eg Edexcel maths P3.
