When seeing the GCSE grade boundaries for OCR, which are scarily high across the board, I came across a problem.

On the OCR grade boundaries document, the Biology B grade boundaries are different to those on the UMS converter.

I have only included the A* boundaries but this applies to the whole set of boundaries.

Document: (B1 B2 B3) A* - 61; (B4 B5 B6) A* - 60

UMS Converter: (B1 B2 B3) A* - 54; (B4 B5 B6) A* - 55

What has happened?

Thanks

OCR just updated the grade boundaries document, and now they are the same as the UMS converter, so much better

OMG THEY UPDATED THE PDF WTF. It matches the UMS calculator now.

B1, B2, B3 = 54/75 (A*)
B4, B5, B6 = 55/85 (A*)
