    To be honest i dont know, my school were very well prepared for this year. We had been giveb clear methods of writing answers and the context 2 In the AQA was somthin we have done plenty a times before.

    If i were to estimate grade boundiresd( i know i cant predict it) however if you were to look at certain factors. Ie first year, schools not fully prepared, government under pressure to reduce gradeflation but also inprove the general national skills set.

    I would presume
    A- 62 capped off at about 66/7 for 100UMS
    B-56
    The rest of the grade would be a linear gap of 6 marks so you do the rest.

    It will be at least 57/58 out of 70 for 80 ums, which is an A. 100 ums will be 63/70 imo.

    Do you really think the exam to have been so easy? Most A grade boundaries are 58 almost constantly every year for AQA. It's a range of 56-60 for the past few years I think.

    That would mean the A grade boundary would be lower than the B grade boundary.

    Do remeber every other year the exam was out of 75 marks, this year out of 70 therfore the skew of marks would be positive. Thefore the Grade a boundry could vary and fluctuate between 52-62 the confidence interval would be large, as it anyones game. As i stated, most schools are not prepared, theres uncertainty about exam structure, the gov have to look good ' The new exams have to be reflective of increasing standards', the Exam boards do not have historical data to go by, so tbey can only estimate, (Do a little search for ofqual grade predictions) so they may have predicted an A is 57 which could be the case, but depends on the noise of the data, and how much other factors intervenes with the real value.

    Oh, I didn't even notice the difference in marks. I suppose that the MC is still out of 25 then?

    What questions had marks shaved off then? I barely noticed anything. Hopefully not so much from the essay as I wrote more than two pages for that...
