    One main factor when deciding grade boundaries is that of general performance, and to shift the bell curve of average grades they must accommodate all marks achieved. This must mean that, on average, we did really well as a collective. There will always be the same amount of people who achieve A*'s, A's, B's etc.. give or take a few hundred, so stop worrying - or at least this is what I'm telling myself... xD

    Good luck everyone, I guess this might give you all bit of hope

    By the way.. when are you all collecting your results?

    Everyone is moaning that they won't get the grade they wanted, but they haven't gotten their results yet.

    GL to everyone.
    Remember that GCSE's are definitely not the be all or end all, nor does not getting into your choice of Sixthform / College
    Alevels are all about individual effort and desire to succeed, which if you have you will do well.

    Yes However, I've heard that the number of A* at A-Level dropped this year, but we'll just have to wait and see. I'm getting my results at 9, good luck
