    Hi,

    I want to know how possible is it to get full UMS in the Unit 1 for English Language, considering it has really low grade boundaries like <65/80 for 180UMS (which is full UMS for the unit). Why do people get so low in English and why are the G.B so low?

    I got full UMS over my AQA English Language GCSE if I recall correctly, and it really just depends on ticking the boxes on the mark scheme. It doesn't matter how long the grade boundaries look, you just need to focus on following the mark scheme
