    Does anyone know what the maximum marks could the exam board lower the grade boundaries by? And what would it take for them to do so?

    A* - 161 marks
    A - 130 marks
    B - 99 marks
    C - 70 marks

    Yeah I'd say around 135, in past years they have only ever put the grade boundaries up or down by a maximum of 10, so I believe it will go up ten from 125 to 135 for an A, And probably around 165 for an A*

    If these were the grade boundaries it would be amazing, lets hope they are.

    Hopefully because November 2015 was easier than today's paper and they needed 167 for an A*
