    Of course!
    The previous grade boundaries were as follows;
    2015- A*: 54, A: 45, B: 36, C: 27
    2014- A*: 57, A: 48, B: 39, C: 30
    2013- A*: 52, A: 43, B: 34, C: 25
    Personally, while the calculations were rather difficult and some of the questions were phrased oddly, the majority of the questions were accessible to a large group of people. My predictions for the grade boundaries are; A*: 55, A: 46, B: 36, C: 29.
    Hope this helps!

    Wow, thank goodness! I was expecting them to be much higher, this is like losing 10 marks on each module for an A*, assuming you get full marks on section D

    I think I did pretty good on the first paper about 68/75. On this paper I think I got about 65-70/85, I made a few really stupid mistakes like writing the wrong number and calculating things wrong but i got 46/48 on the coursework so hopefully I have an A*

    Damn, you've definitely gotten an A* with those marks- congrats!

    Thanks

    However, they do seem to be quite low, I never thought an A would be 53%, are you positive this it what they usually are?

    Thanks! I'm going to be taking physics for A Level, how do you think you did?

    I thought that the first one went swimmingly, and, in combination with my CA (A*), I hope that I've done enough to get an A*/A too! I was going to take physics, but I'm focusing my attention on chemistry and biology for A Levels.
