    I just wanted to ask how you can find out the grade boundaries for previous years as I am a bit confused.

    Here is 2015 Biology GT. How is the maximum syllabus mark 200 when we sit paper 1,3,6. (40+80+40=160) not 200. Does this mean this year the 3rd variant you needed 159/160 for an A*? Thanks in advance.

    i think you need to get 159/200maybe each paper is worth a different percentage. check out the syllabus for it.I do coordinated sciences and its (40+120+60)= 220 but the max grade is 240 as each paper is worth a different percentage. paper 1 (30% of mark), paper 3 (50%) paper 6 (20%)good luck!

    Oh, ok. I just asked my teachers and they said the same thing about the weighting. I think you multiply your percentage for each specific paper to the weighting of that specific paper and add them all up. Thanks for the help!

    Please note that the boundaries vary each year, as each year candidates score differently, causing shifts in the boundaries. You cannot archive an A* on an individual paper, as the A*/A boundary is created after the results of all candidates have been collected.

    In maths, the boundary for an A* was 87%, where as last year it was only 74%. Please bare that in mind
