    grade boundrry predictions for chem and bio breadth?
    No idea - not even my teachers know. At first I'd expected them to be fairly low, but with most people I've spoken to having found both exams comparatively easy I'm not sure anymore. Perhaps around the same as previous years?

    Yes, when some of my friends did the exam this year they said it was ridiculously easy, and that they only slightly faltered on a few questions, but wouldn't an easy exam just mean very high grade boundaries? Didn't bring this up though, as one of my friends found it hard and I didn't want to scare her.

    A teacher of mine said that as there's going to be a new specification the board has decided to give everyone an easy test so they can get good grades. So maybe the grade boundaries could be relatively low. But then again it's unlikely that an exam board would easily give away grades like that. All in all its worrying and confusing and I just keep on spiralling down the "but if" tunnel. :/

    People at my school found the exams relatively hard - i think it'll be around 65% for an A.
    We even had a talk from our chemistry teacher saying that the exam was challenged
    But then again compared to the specimen papers, I do think that the exams were easier, so I'm really kicking myself over the stupid mistakes i made.
    But then again they did change the a levels because too many people were getting top grades...

    i think they will be low considering its a new spec
