    More than once, I'm sure. June 2012 comes to mind, it was 43.

    I realise the general consensus is that this was a difficult paper and that this will be reflected in the grade boundaries. However as we are all A2 students do you think this would push up grade boundaries, or do you think the fact that we are resit candidates means that on average candidates will be weaker? Thoughts on the grade boundaries. Using the unofficial mark scheme, looking like i'm between 42 and 47 marks.

    Check your e-mails, I added you earlier in the day. Would like to see your answers added to the file.

    Thanks.
    Thanks, apologies the page hadn't refreshed. Added to the scheme and left the font colour as black so it's easier if you'd like to make any additional changes to what I've added
