Exam boards are aware of the low entry numbers so will make sure grade boundaries aren't affected by this and the higher calibre of students. You don't need to worry.

you should be doing the new spec. Why are you questioning about this a day before the exam? lol. You should've asked someones when you got the time table

I was not told anything about the new specification from my sixth form, however the issue has been resolved now.
