    There's controversial grade boundaries most years tbh. Might be worse than usual though
    Not ones of national interest though. I think the passing mark for the new GCSE maths may possibly raise some eyebrows.

    Depends on the real reason why they aren't releasing them until results day (I'm pretty sure reducing anxiety wasn't the reason somehow). If it's in any way linked to the likely grade boundaries of the new linear A levels (while they hadn't all been set when they announced this, they analyse trends and likely boundaries as they go along so they would have some idea) then it could be as they're happy to release the outgoing specification gbs but cannot say this so are "keeping them all back" while in reality releasing the ones they are happy to release if you care to look!

    Some of them may be unexpectedly high, but equally some of them may be unexpectedly low.
    Not all of the papers will be the same (as in particularly high or low compared to estimates)
    Please be careful saying things like this - you are just guessing. Conspiracy theorising isn't helpful or appropriate

    The OCR Physics A unifying paper grade boundaries are going to be hilarious.
    Tell me about it, any predictions?
    I think I got around 30 max.
    Hoping that's enough for an A. Highly doubt it though

    I saw the A grade predicted by someone here on TSR at 33/34, which seems reasonable to me. Some people I know from college, and on Reddit, are expecting to get less than 10 marks, so...

    I think I answered less than 30 marks worth. I'm expecting low to mid 20's if I remember correctly.

    Yeah I guess so, I really need an A for my firm. I pray I get in I think I got 160-165 max overall over the 3 papers.

    Good luck, only time will tell now. Really interested to see the unified boundary though
