    How did everyone go on in this GCSE? A lot of people thought that exam was terrible. I myself achieved a B, but I was expected an A. I think quite a few people in my class underachieved in this subject.

    I thought the exam was ok. I went in with an A* in my practical and i got a A in my final grade. No one in my class got an A* which was strange.

    lissie89, you might be able to resit the exam but would you want to? A B is still a good pass. if you're going on to music a-level then study like mad for that :]

    I was predicted an A* with about 5 other people in my class. I got an A, no one in my class got higher than an A. Apparantly it was 85% for an A*!!!!:eek: 85%!!! That is ridiculously high. Does anyone else agree?

    I got a D (inches away from a C, though), simply because the teacher wasn't very good and he couldn't control the class very well...:mad:

    I was predicted an A* but I thought that was being a bit optimistic. I did get it in the end but I was on OCR - the exam was a completely different format than we'd seen in mocks, it left a lot more room for you to ramble rather than wanting specific answers which I thought was a bit strange.

    We were told 80% was an A*, 85% does seem a bit steep (not sure what grade boundaries where in the end)

    I got an A.. and was predicted a B, so i'm well happy. I thought i did terrible in my listening paper.. it was completely different from the other practice papers we did in class. for example, we never had to learn about composers from each area of study.. nobody in the class could answer the composer questions.

    but yes 85% is a lot.

    a question- is edexcel the board with the highest grade boundaries? because music drama and art A*'s are all ridiculously difficult to achieve.

    I am right in saying that because you got A*s in everything else, people always say 'what di you get the A in?' haha:p:

    I think so - the Art A* boundary is 97%, so I'm assuming it's the same for other art subjects (i.e. Drama, Music, etc).
