    Hey guys, anyone that knows anyone who was done the OCR science exams will know that the exam board have been somewhat 'kind' to us. Everyone seems to have found the exams relatively easy. But this means the grade boundaries will be higher, but how high can they get, any opinions?

    You reckon? I thought grade boundaries can only be changed by a few marks a year, my way of saying I hope they're not incredibly high lol

    Highly doubt A* would be over 48. I think it'll be 48 for an A* 40 for A and so on - similar to last year's boundaries

    OCR 21st century or gateway? 21st century is usually really low, 69% ish for an A* in the papers, but 90% if measured in UMS.
