    Yes AQA Grade 9-1
    The new 9-1 exam scheme is now marked based on what the population gets so it could vary. So say if you are in the top 50% you for your marks you could get a B or A.

    I’m on AQA too, here are last years grade boundaries:
    http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...Y-JUN-2017.PDF
    So from here you can see 72/160 was a grade 4 which is a pass. You need about 35-37 on each paper. 72/160 is 45% of the total marks. However it is likely this year the ground boundaries will go up slightly so the grade 4 boundary might be around 79 (that would be a 10% increase which is quite high).
    You said your aiming for a ‘A’ which is a 7 so therefore that would’ve been 104/160 which is 65% but as I said this is likely to go up slightly this year to maybe 110/180.
