Hi, as a current year 11 student something that really worries me is the grade that I'll be achieving in gcse english as most will know are currently very unclear. Please can anyone who has recently done any mock exams tell me what grade boundaries were used in your school both for language and literature.

Thanks for letting me know and sorry for the late reply. Yours are so different to mine for a grade 6 I needed to get 54 marks in language papers 1 and 2. Furthermore in my school a grade 9 is unheard of. I have only just done literature paper 1 so have no clue of the boundaries but in paper 2 86 was a grade 8, 72 a 7, 63 a 6 and 52 a 5.

My English teacher said the grade boundaries would probably be lower for AQA, when results come out. Based on the results for my school, it was made so more people would pass to increase the average score, and purposely so people wouldn't be 1-2 marks off a grade.

Using old spec grade boundaries, a 7. However, do note that your teacher may have given you that mark with the assumption that it would be equivalent to a 5. You should always bear that in mind.

Apparently the grade boundaries will be really high, for both engl and math (wat teachers at my skool have said) but the whole country if not most schools are finding it very hard especially math so shouldnt grade boundaries be lower??

Unless we all come up with a plan to purposely do bad and make them easier
