    Well Im quite average at maths and got a 7 last year (so they may be a slight increase), but ive heard when a new specificaton is introduced the grade boundaries tend to remain low and then increase over time, like the grade boundaries for science. The grade boundaries will increase for sure but it shouldn't be anything too significant.

    no, 9-1 exams have only been sat in 3 subjects, and even for those 3, it's impossible to gauge grade boundaries unless the exams have actually been sat, even then "predictions" are often inaccurate.

    I did the new exams last year and the best advice I can give you is to not think about where the grade boundaries may be. If you are someone who's aim for English and maths is to pass , just work your butt off! And also ground boundaries change every year and aren't set until all exams are have been sat. Good luck and as long as you work hard you will be fine!

    You always make me laugh when you go on about predicted grade boundaries .Always comforting to know how many examiners who can tell the future just happen to be on TSR.

    Clearly it wasn't clear enough as another person thought it was directed towards them.
