    These are the historic boundaries:

    2012: A* 89%
    2013: A* 88%
    2014: A* 82%
    2015: A* 81%
    2016: A* 79%


    Will this year's boundaries stick with the trend and be around 80 or is it possible to jump back up to 88? How hard was this paper compared to past years?

    I don't think it would jump to 88 cause Edexcel has progressively been making the listening paper harder. I personally found it harder than last years and I was really upset with how it went. Lets hope its lower than normal
