    I think these are so so high, there are higher than Edexcel's (as theirs is out of 200) I do think the papers were okay but I'm not expecting an A* with those boundaries. wbu?

    170/200 = 85%
    150/175 = 85.7%

    ?? They're practically the same..

    I'm just saying that not as many people were mentioning the AQA ones too- maybe it's because less people do they exam, I don't know. good luck if you are getting results tomorrow

    You might be pleasantly surprised, the unofficial mark schemes won't show method marks accurately. And even if you do get an A, it's still amazing (I know it probably won't make you feel better if you wanted an A* ) good luck though

    Thanks, no I was just pointing out that both exams seemed to be 'easy asf' according to grade boundaries but probably weren't for some people. Thanks, I am going to fail badly. OOPS!
