This might be a really stupid question, but I don't understand Edexcel's grade boundaries for June 2017.
I'm looking at the raw marks, and for example, the marks available overall from both of my English litlang (9EL0) exams will add up to 100, however the grade boundaries says 300 marks overall.
Where are these other 200 marks coming from? Am I missing something?
Same goes for business (9BS0), overall should be 300 marks but the grade boundaries say 335

Has anyone else noticed this? Or am I just really thick, oof

Would you mind linking the grade boundaries so I can have a look? Thanks.

Most likely scaled to make a certain weighting.

For lit&lang? I'm not too sure. I think there was a lot more I could have done, completely forgot to mention anything about realism and expressionism. How about you?

Honestly same, that's all I really said as well. I guess they were being kind with Brooker before they dropped us with that property question, oof. Friday... I don't even want to think about that, I feel like it's going to go so bad, at least with the Othello side of things. How about you?
