    Hey, I just had a biology GCSEs mock exam and at the end counted everything up and I anticipate that I'll get around 70%. What 9-1 grade would this be? Thanks!

    I would call it a B, so like, a 6?

    I got 42 on my mock and that was a 5- so probably like a 6 or 7 but it depends on how well you all did on average and who your exam board is

    it all depends on grade boundaries, most likely it’s a 6/7

    Yeah I am AQA; what area is your school? I am hoping it's similar with regards to the grade boundaries. Last time I did a mock I got 67% and got a 6, and was about 4 marks off a 7, however it was a much shorter test (1 topic.) Thanks!

    in the real exam, you'll probably get an 8 if you hit 70% on both papers, grade boundaries are looking low

    That sounds about right. Maths and English are core subjects and look at the boundaries for that
