    I guess it will be higher. The paper wasn't all that hard. Maybe 145 or 150 out of 180 for an A*

    2013 A* = 129/180 (72%)
    2014 A* = 129/180 (72%)
    2015 A* = 135/180 (75%)
    I understand grade boundaries are based on overall performance of the year but not entirely, never seen a year where grade boundaries fluctuate by more than 3% and usually it takes atleast two years for grade boundaries to change at all.
    My prediction, a harder paper than 2015 so i expect about 75 or 78% for an A*.

    probably another board. I think the grade boundaries should be lower this time - AQA were plaing mind games with their formatting and wording of questions lol

    Im not sure about igcse seeing as I did gcse. I personally think that it was definitely harder than last years, especially chemistry today!! I predict they would most likely move it down a few marks.

    I'm doing Edexcel too... I thought the questions were weird: nothing at ALL like all past papers! I thought it was fine though. A few people have said they thought it was hard though, so on that basis I think the grade boundaries might be a bit lower than last year (hopefully!)

    Did you do the chemistry today as well? The one where it had questions about burning copper and dynamic equilibrium etc...
    What do you reckon the grade boundary for an A* will be (for bio).
    For me it's not over though because I do triple

    I'm doing that too... I don't about the boundaries for the papers individually, but for A*A* last year it was 272/360...

    There are two papers to do in Edexcel.
    You did paper one which is out of 120
    And paper 2 is out of 60.
    Adding up to 180
