    If it's username/password access only, and you do not have the right to have those, then it is ILLEGAL for you to be accessing these documents.
    That's the only problem with the password protected documents. :p:

    I have the password and I can assure you that the examiners reports have not been released by edexcel yet and probably won't be until the 23rd.

    Also please don't send me requests for mark schemes because the mods have told me I can't do it any more.

    Ok cool. dnt worry im not asking u for mark schemes. I had a look through a mark scheme and it says uniform b for an A* is 360/400 which is 90%. Am i making sense? Probably, im sounding confused.

    But i wish some1 cud tell me abt the grade boundary of 2006. Grade boundaries frm year to year dont really change.

    Thanks people.
    Kind regards

    'UMS' marks don't generally change, i.e. 360/400 is always an A*. However, the RAW mark boundaries (the actual marks you get in the exam) do change, and so the marks are scaled in proportion to reflect that.

    For example, last year, Biology A (Linear):
    A* = 83%
    A = 75%
    B = 61%
    C = 47%
    D = 34%

    Whereas in 2005:
    A* = 79%
    A = 69%
    B = 58%

    and so on...

    even though between the two years the A* boundary varies by 4% the UMS boundary would have stayed at 360/400.

    Hope this helps

    Oh yes...another worry.!!

    Do they give us the grade by adding up the marks from our written exam, modular exam & courseowork. My modular exam & coursewok was OK but i think i didnt do that well in my physics written paper (mod 5& 6). I dnt knw what was going on in me? I learnt everything but went blank infront of the paper. I made some really stupid mistakes like instead of writing: 'listens microwave radiation' i wote 'sends microwave radiation'. HOW STUPID & FRAUSTRATING !
