    For AQA GCSE Double Science Coursework, can anyone send me a link of recent grade boundaries related to my course? We are doing the old specification and we were not told if the Coursework was higher or foundation just that you could get any grade on it.

    I also do AQA GCSE Science and in general the boundaries for any controlled assessment / coursework are fairly similar every year, for most if not all subjects the coursework / CA is untiered, so you can achieve ANY grade A* - G. For the June 2016 Science CA the boundaries were:

    Core Science:
    MAX = 50
    A* = 43
    A = 40
    B = 37
    C = 34
    D = 28
    E = 22
    F = 17
    G = 12
    U = <12

    Additional Science:
    MAX = 50
    A* = 44
    A = 40
    B = 36
    C = 33
    D = 27
    E = 22
    F = 17
    G = 12
    U = <12

    The boundaries generally dont change for science CA especially at grades A, C and G

    Well the coursework i did was out of 50, but split into 2 parts, the first being out of 20 and the second being out of 30. So i'm not sure unless you're doing a different Spec :-/

    Yes I think I'm doing the same one as you! Does paper 1 have the methods part which is worth 9 marks alone.

    For your sources you can use anything such as the internet or textbooks as long as you can fully reference them to avoid plagiarism

    You know the AQA notes sheet, does it have to be neat? My writing on there is kind of squashed together.
