    So I'll be the first year doing the new specification this summer for me A-level chemistry. I don't have any past papers to practice with obviously so all I've got is two specimen papers. Are specimen papers harder than actual exam papers? Also as I'm the first year doing the specification will the grade boundaries be lower than normal?

    Grade boundaries dont necessarily lower. They change the grade boundaries accordingly to make sure that the same percentage (ish) of people get the sane grades as years before. Although it is likely that the boundaries will lower because everyone is in the sane boat as you, so others may not get high grades
