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.

im a year 12 student taking C1 and C2...
14. Oh fair enough i thought we were the last year to do the old spec.
15. i live in the UAE maybe things r different here..so i bet there is like 40 people sitting this exam from here as year 12 so i hope they dont bump up the grade boundaries.

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
