    Well I will as i'm on AQA.

    But I reckon that the leaks mean that the grade boundaries will wrongly be higher due to the cheats, and this will rob some people of the grade they need to get onto the course at a given nui that they hope to achieve.

    The cheaters won't get caught.

    But what about P2 - How many people saw those 5 questions? think of it, UKL the night before a big exam.

    Say, 30 or so people see it, tell their friends etc. You can't be sure of the numbers.

    i sat the one of the hardest bio central concept papers - but sooo many ppl cheated - and the grade boundaries will increase!!!

    Yes I agree.

    In my view, 200 people somehow saw those 5 questions, whether it be off UKL, or off someone who saw it off UKL - You can see how qucikly it can spread.

    these people, many may well be getting D's and E's - these 2 hundred instead get high A's - This may well push up the grade boundaries by a amrk or two.

    Kid then gets robbed and gets 479/600 - misses A, and misses offer.

    Wouldn't surprise me.

    No he has a point, my point is that the P2 Maths exam may well have wrong grade boundaries after being put up on the web for everyone to see.

    No one knew that they were actual exam questions at the time though, so won't have gone telling everyone.

    I agree it's unfair when a large scale leak such as the example above occurs. I think more should have been done, but hey it's EDEXCEL what else can u expect.
    I am with AQA on all of my exams and have confidence in the system. As long as leaks don't occur, few if any people can cheat. It's almost impossible.

    nah i don't think it'll change the grade boundaries too much a few borderline candidates may be unjustly moved down a grade but otherwise it shouldn't make much difference.

    Errr, it doesnt matter how many people saw the question before the exam, for a start, the people who are capable of answering the questions the night before would of been capable of getting A's anyway. No1 knew that it was the paper to be sat the next day, so no1 would of told their friends.
