Hi folks, I'm on new syllabus OCR (Bio and chem).
Formerly to get an A* you needed an A overall, plus 90% average UMS over the A level papers.
Now the papers are integrated, to get an A* do you have to average 90% over the three papers per science we sit this summer? Thanks

No more UMS now, what you see on results sheet is raw mark- A* is likely to be around 70% raw marks- if you look at last year`s AS grade boundaries and account for the fact that we only have 2 sets of sample assessment material- new question style has made papers noticeably harder than previous years hence the fall in the A* grade boundary

Previous years look ridiculously easy in comparison.
Out AQA exams last year were really quite difficult.
