    I would say if we got lucky, but it's definitely a possibility.

    Been through all the past paper grade boundaries for the old specification and got these.

    They're probably all a little high because the papers have got harder.

    Wow! thats extremely useful thank you for sharing, and yeah we have to take into account the fact that the new specification is relatively more difficult, i've also heard people say that for the new specification a larger proportion of questions on the paper is at an A grade compared to the last spec.

    Yes - it's now 50% A-A* topics so I think they'll shift down by at least 10, plus the papers were a lot harder, and it was the first year of the specification. So, they'll be quite a bit lower I think.

    Well, theres one thing we can be certain of and that's the fact that it generally depends on how everyone else did, and the fact that you've looked at past papers gives a fairly accurate indication.

    And by any chance do you do AQA triple science?

    I would say if you got at least 27 marks in each paper than you can be quite confident that you will get a 4

    Unfortunately not - I do OCR triple science which is probably the worst exam board.

    It's by far the worst - I swear they asked absolutely no science in the papers with really stupid contexts...

    Great post, but just wondering, how did you come up with these boundaries, especially the one for a 9?

    We know that 7 is an A and 4 is a C so I set those at the A and the C boundary.
    A 5 is a high C/low B and is 2/3 the way into a grade C.
    I set the 9 boundary somewhere into full UMS boundary and then equally spaced the other boundaries.

    I did this for every year from like 2012-2015 (including November resits) and then took average/mean/max/min ect

    They seem accurate enough and i think that the grade boundaries for 6,5 and 4 will be slightly higher.

    Thanks for that, should of got over 100, but some high predictions by some people had me worried.
