    Nobody knows. Exam boundaries are set after exams are marked and the results are analysed. There has never been an exam for this specification so there is no track record to go on. Grade boundaries for new specifications have historically been on the low side in every subject because it's a bit harder to prepare for them and there's limited exam style practice available. Maths papers,especially at AS, have tended to be consistently predictable In content and difficulty. My guess is around 78-82% for an A, most likely a bit less for the first round of exams.
