    Could someone help me with the grade boundaries for my exams. I'm confused by my AQA AS (retakes) and A2 results for Business studies and my A2 Spanish speaking and written paper. According to the link below these are the AQA grade boundaries for june 2016. On my exam results sheet which I got today it says that I got:

    AQA grade boundaries: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...-JUNE-2016.PDF

    BUSS1 38 marks = E
    BUSS2 67 marks = D
    BUSS3 66 marks = C
    BUSS4 42 marks = E

    Spanish unit 4 centre oral 40 marks = C
    Spanish unit 3 55 marks = U

    Which gives me an overall mark for Business Studies AS of an D (115) and for A2 a D (223). I'm really confused and my exams officer was just patronising and rude which is not what you want on results day

    Am I using the wrong link, are my results wrong I don't know but I just need some help and advice ASAP! Thanks

    Have you got both marks and UMS on there?

    If you find they don't match up, try using this one. It's the UMS boundaries.
