    I'm taking AQA Geography AS this year and was looking at the grade boundaries for the 2015 results and for unit 1 it said you needed to get a raw mark of 66/120 to get an A? And I was just wondering if this is accurate because that means I need to get just over 55% to get an A, and from what I remember my teacher telling me I seem to remember it was more like 80%, 55% just seems way too low. Does anyone know what the actual grade boundaries are? Or am I just being really stupid haha

    My teacher always told me that it was always quite low in the 50-60% range.
    When you look at the Official grade boundaries that is what they really are.
    (Though aim for 80%+ anyways )
