    I'm so happy today I found out that my English mock results were printed wrong and instead of getting 6s for both, I got a 7 in Language and 8 in Literature! I'm really pleased especially as I thought I flopped language.

    How were your results?.

    Did you teachers say anything about the grade boundaries especially for the language paper 1?
    Like how many marks would you need to get a grade 8 or 9? Because I was told I was one mark off a 9 in language

    75/80 was the grade given to us for a 9 in language paper 1.
    I achieved around ~65 I believe, what did you get?

    Oh then the grade boundary for my school was 74/80 to get a grade 9 and I got 73.

    I do however think the discussion on here about grade boundaries isn't really going to get us anywhere because nobody will know the actual grade boundaries until we've sat our exams. I think the best thing to do is try to exclude grades and grade boundaries from your mocks and focus on constant improvement of the mark out of 80, because ultimately a higher mark out of 80 will be a higher grade, whatever way you look at it.

    My school had 78/80 as the grade boundary for a 9; needless to say, there were many dissatisfied students when the results were handed out. Also, the people in my class seemed to have done better in the Literature papers than the Language ones; was that the same for everyone else?
