    Good luck, mate :P They say only 1-2% of the country will get level 9, and the people who would have gotten an A* on the old paper are probably now more like a 7 because of the shift in boundaries and material. Our teacher says if we get a 6/7 in the mocks he can hopefully get us to an 8 by exam time.

    I was told that out of everyone who achieves a grade 7 and above, the top 20% will get grade 9. Does that equate to 1-2% out of the whole country? To check, see the stastics for how many people achieved a A grade last year and work out 20% of that?

    About 15% get A/A* and 6.6% get an A*. You may have already checked that, though
