Last year,2018, the new linear A-level demanded 66% to get an A grade (notionally 67%, 65% and 67% in the three papers).

In 2017, the A grade boundary was 67% (69%, 70%, 63%).

2016 was the last year to use modular UMS-based papers. Each of the 4 papers had the same weighting: 73%, 73%, 67%, 68% respectively for an A grade.

I will go back one more modular year to 2015: 81%, 72%, 63%, 69%.

You're welcome to go further back in time if you like, but it seems very unlikely that 80% will demanded of aspiring A grade students for the AQA Psychology A-level. Knock yourself out: http://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administ...tables-archive

Thank you. I didn't think it was that high but it's just what we're told at college

I believe that's called behaviourism, isn't it? Telling you something in order to trigger a response. Or have I got psychology totally messed up!

The evidence suggests something other than what your college is telling you, but I think they're trying to get you all to gird up your loins for a final push for grades.
