    HI I HAVE BIOLOGY AS MOCK AND I JUST SOLVED
    AQA PAPER 1 AND PAPER 2 SPECIMEN 2014
    AND GOT MARKS
    paper 1 = 42/75 56%
    paper 2 = 52/75 69.3%
    total = 94/150 63%

    Last year, 88/150 was an A. However, I'm unsure as to what grade boundaries your school will use.

    generally it's 60% for C but in a recent paper i did it was like 65% for an A.
    schools generally use 60% as a C

    Last year, a C was 44% It is not always 60% for a C. The misconception arose from UMS which is now being scrapped.
