    The Edexcel Economics B course I'm doing is a "new" course so there aren't any grade boundaries for A2, just AS, so I was wondering if the A2 boundaries are likely to be similar. You only needed 102 out of 160 for an A at AS, which I was very pleasantly surprised about, so I was wondering if this year (I'm in year 13), the numbers will be roughly the same as that? Would be useful to know so that I know what marks in exam questions for classwork and homework I should be aiming for.

    Thanks if anyone can help

    It's gonna be impossible to tell seeing as nobody's done the A2 exam ever and how well people did is usually how they work these things out.

    It's a new spec and no one knows the difficulty of the papers so your guess will be as good as anyone I wouldn't focus on trying to match boundaries, because you'll be maximising your chances for whatever grade you're after by simply focusing on learning and revising the material
