I think they could shift down by 2 or 3 marks for each boundary considering how hard ppl found eating and gender.

For reference, that's roughly

A* = 71% for PSYA3 / 77% PSYA4

A = 63% / 69%

B = 54% / 60%

C = 47% / 52%

D = 40% / 45%

E = 33% / 37%

PSYA3: Probably the same as the questions for my topic were predicted correctly based on loopa but I heard gender was incorrect, so depending on how many did gender and messed it up, we could see a small shift of 1/2 marks but I doubt it.

PSYA4: Those who did schizophrenia really did not expect biological therapies to come up again and most people I'm aware do schizophrenia so that will have an impact. Research methods as well had some bizarre questions (I personally didn't mind it) so I could see a bit of a drop in the boundaries for PSYA4, maybe 61-62 for an A* and 54-55 for an A?

Is this overall? so if a person got 45 overall e.g. 20 on paper 3 and 35 on paper 4 they would get an A?

No, it was 45 for an A in PSYA3 alone and then 57 for an A in PSYA4. 20 in PSYA3 would be a U and 35 in PSYA4 would have been an E I believe
