    Is this OCR MEI or regular OCR? Because C1 is looking pretty high... and regular OCR was not that easy

    Regular OCR. Agreed it wasn't that easy, but C1 always has very high grade boundaries with very limited width between them as there are always many candidates who are very well prepared. C1 is always 72/72 for full UMS

    I agree about C1 having high boundaries, but I have never seen a paper as difficult as that. The JAN11 paper had an A boundary at 54, and that wasn't a particularly challenging paper. Last year's boundaries were only so high because it was extremely basic. I've got a feeling that there will be a drop this year.

    Also, I would probably say that the D1 boundaries will be a tad higher. It was relatively straightforward (from what I can remember), minus the graphing question.

    The last few C1 have had extremely high boundaries and it's hard to compare boundaries pre2013 as A-Levels were considerably easy at that point. D1 I thought there was quite a few 1 markers that were far less straightforward than previous years. Evidently these are only my predictions; they could be massively incorrect.

    That's true, but I feel like OCR purposely created a harder C1 paper to prevent the grade boundaries from rising to ridiculous marks.

    But oh well, I guess that we'll find out in a week!
