Hi - I just sat my GCSE OCR History B Exam one hour ago and I was looking for the grade boundaries out of interest. I went on the OCR Website to look for the 2016 grade boundaries (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/323540-...-june-2016.pdf) and the paper I sat (aspects of international relations) only seems to need a 51/80 for an A* which seems quite low as it is usually 90%. However, on my mock I got a 57/81 and I got a B, so I am very confused. Any help would be great, thanks.

For an A* overall, the exam board typically wants to see an average of 90% across all papers and coursework (if there is any). I was aware of a person who did remarkably well in all papers and still only came out with an A as they didn't meet that average.

90% in UMS marks you mean.

I don't think other papers and coursework matter since it is just a mock so UMS marks don't matter.
