    depends on the grade boundaries. I hope it's not more than 108 for an A to be on the safe side

    Grade boundaries will most likely be that low for an A tbh, I'm just praying I get enough marks for a B grade

    same i felt like the first one was a bit tiring to complete due to all the little multiple choice questions with maths behind them.

    Feel free to post your own verdicts.
    I have thought of this list for a long time, and wished to post this for the benefit of other users.
    Note this is paper 1 only.

    OCR BREADTH (OUT OF 70)
    A 53
    B 46
    C 40
    D 34
    E 28
    U 0

    ALL THESE ARE BASED ON SKEWS OF GRADE BOUNDARIES OVER PREVIOUS SERIES. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THESE AS CONCRETE.

    THEY SHOULD BE LOWER AS TO NEWER SPECIFICATIONS BUT DO NOT CONSULT THIS MATTER UNTIL BOUNDARIES ARE PUBLISHED AFTER THE EXAMS.

    Good luck!

    what about depth?
    OCR CHEMISTRY DEPTH (OUT OF 70)
    A 52
    B 45
    C 39
    D 33
    E 27
    U 0

    I think the last question, the drawing the apparatus, the long marker questions and isomerism will cause people to lose marks (lots of them).

    They should be lower, as you should remember that students that have a lower intellect also tend to take these exams, and also that fewer resources were available then in the previous specification, and that it is linear, the content is harder to cover in one attempt, so marks should be lower than the ones I predicted.

    last year it was 78% for an A, you are predicting 75%, surely it can't be lower, but if it really is as low as you say or even lower then I'll be very happy
