    Hopefully! Synoptic definitely has to be lower since no one really had any idea what they were doing in that paper
    grade boundaries have to be low as first year on new spec however paper 1 was easy so not sure

    Yeah I agree, paper 1 was pretty straightforward so it will probably have quite standard grade boundaries. What do you think the grade boundaries will be for an A*?

    Paper 1- 63/80
    Paper2- 60/80
    Paper3- 56/80.

    Paper 3 will be very low and macro was marginally harder than micro as pretty much everyone answered the demerit question for paper 1.

    Overall for an A- 180/240. Around that. Maybe 210 for an A*.

    I predict similar.

    Based on the papers themselves with paper 3 by far being the hardest.

    Based on the newspapers saying that grade boundaries for new spec exams will be lowered.

    Based on the fact that we are the first year and the last time in economics a new spec was introduced it was 54 for an A out of 80 something like that

    What do you think a B or even a C would be?

    Though using these foundations for a prediction could suggest that 210/240 is way too high for an A*

    I think its ballshit. Whilst it is true that the grade boundaries could be this low, especially after reading the news etc, it is unlikely they are legit. The edexcel grade boundaries were leaked and the link went to an actual pdf document whereas this jjust goes to a twitter page of someone pretending to be troy whatever his name is. Plus the background just seems like it was put together on a word document or something. Anyway fingers crossed they are legit.

    I got my results - A*AB.

    The B was in AQA economics and I was 3 marks away from an A!

    Considering I had to sit 3 papers that's just ONE extra mark needed in each paper for an A!!

    Should I go for the remark?

    exact same as me. 3 marks from an A. I have put in for a remark of all 3 papers and am awaiting the result. Fingers crossed but I am not hopeful.

    I was 4 marks off an A (into the B band by 20 marks) I got into my insurance which is Durham but my firm was Warwick which i needed the A for. Do I get a priority re-mark on hope of getting an A or stick with Durham in fear of it falling below a B and loosing my place at Durham?
