    I would love for it to decrease but let's be practical about it. They will deffo not make it 41/240 for a C
    and remember last year, so many people were entered for higher when they should've done foundation.
    This won't happen too much this year.

    Lmao no, the only reason the grade boundaries were low is because everyone flopped around the UK! The same percentage of people that failed in the year before is the same as the people who failed this year.

    You’re doing A-levels as you mentioned on your blog so why should it matter.

    Grade boundaries are how they are for a reason. The pass mark was so low because people found the papers difficult. Each year, roughly, the same amount of people pass so it isn't to say that it was easier to pass last year
