    It really depends on the paper. Last years paper was considered easy so I think you needed about 80% to get an A*. Other years it has been around 70%, so its difficult to tell. It will probably be low for tomorrow, as the paper is likely to be hard seeing as last years was easy.

    What's your predicted grade? I'm sure you'll be fine - if the exam is hard the boundaries will be low (hopefully!)

    I'm predicted a B, but after today's exam, I am aiming for an A.
    The exam wasn't too difficult (but the 6 mark question on extracting drugs from leaves, though)

    thinking its going to be higher than last year since it was such an easy paper and the teachers are getting so much more used to teaching this specification, probs going to be within the 60s.
