At school we got our second mocks back which we did around Easter from the exam board and everyone did not do well. Our science teachers told us that they are expecting a 7 to be around 50% which is mad and for my second mock I got 39 out of 90 which is not good :/// I am predicted an 8 and have been revising and I just did a spec paper and got 55 out 90 (I am in top set) so I am not sure if that is good or bad as not sure how reliable my school is being. Has anyone else got any ideas o what the grade boundaries will be like for OCR Chemistry and Biology and Physics?

not sure about OCR so ive got no idea if this will help but i sit AQA and got 50% on my chemistry mock and came out with just a 7 (like right on the grade boundary) in my opinion i presume around 65% would be a 8

I do AQA and I got 76/100 which is apparently on the border between an 8 and a 9

wow, so it seems 50% is around a 7? That's so low! Where did your teachers get these estimates from? I thought a grade 7 would be around 60%. In my school, for every mock exam/class exam, we have been using MUCH higher boundaries for chemistry (65-75% = 6, 75-85% = 7, 85-95% = 8, 95%+ = 9)

Yeah we say a 7 is approximately around 50% and that's based on the maths and English grade boundaries for last years exams, particularly maths because there's more in common between those subjects.

I assume your doing OCR 21st century, I am too, I did a spec paper today as well and I got 75/90. And looking at last years grade boundaries for OCR 21st century an A* was like 70-80%. I don't think that they will be that high this year so I definitely do not think that a 9 will be 95%+, it will probably be more like 85%-90%

I highly doubt grade boundaries to be this low. I do AQA triple higher and think the paper wasn't too bad. Probably around 58-62 for a 7 in my opinion, but hey, i could be completely wrong What you guys think?

We had to have 65 for a 7 and 80 for a 9
