What are you expecting 9-1 grade boundaries in Maths and English will be? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I want a 9 in English Literature and Language more than anything and do think that it's something I'm capable of. Despite that, I do think it's much more difficult this year to make a guess as to what the grade boundaries will be because the 9-1 course is new and therefore we have no prior examples to reference.
    What do you think the grade boundaries will be for English Lit, Lang and Maths?
    I got a 71/80 in my December Language Paper 2 Mock and was wondering what grade people believe that would possibly correlate to in the real exams.

    I would imagine 71/80 would correlate to a Grade 9, especially this year. This is because the grade boundaries are 'bound' (pun intended) to be as low as they ever will be because it's a new somewhat unfamiliar course.

    Edit: Plus the grade boundaries for English are always really low. Also take into account that there is no foundation or higher tiers so everyone is taking the same paper.
