    The thing about AQA and other exam boards is that it depends on how well the rest of the UK does. So if the rest of the UK did crap then then the grade boundaries would be low and so it would be easier to get an A* but if the nation did well then the opposite so it is hard to tell how many marks you would need to get a D!

    Yeah that means you shouldn't worry because even if you get a D your coursework is great and so your overall grade would be shifted up to a B or high C.

    If my advice helped please like and follow
    Thanks!

    Basing this on the AQA grade boundaries from 2015, I would say the grade boundary for a D this year would be around 35/80.
