    That would be reasonable, but don't you think it will be abit higher? it seems a little too low possibly, despite the exam (especially unit 1) being a little hard. Don't they raise it each year? Thanks for the reply btw

    I was initially going to say that I expect all boundaries for all subjects being lower because of the ripple effects of the A-level reforms.

    However, then I realised that if anything, they will be higher than usual so that less people get high grades, curbing the claims that exams are too easy.

    So maybe an A will be around 53/54. I'd be really surprised if it was any higher than 55.

    That would be amazing, but seems to good to be true :/ I agree with what you said about grades being lower due to reforms, but Edexcel politics has not been reformed yet and still remains the old spec.

    Also, if you don't mind me asking, did you sit this exam this year? if so, how did you find it and which topics did you choose?

    not yet, but they've announced their draft specification so it seems probable.
