I was having a brief check on the grade boundaries last year for AQA Biology, OCR Chemistry and OCR MEI Mathematics and I thought the grade boundaries were really low with the exception of OCR Chemistry.

In my school, the grade boundaries are extremely high such as 92% in order to get an A* in AQA Biology whereas last year, only 69% was required to get an A*. The same applies to OCR MEI Maths as 79% was required to get an A*.

Will the grade boundaries stay around the same limits such as 65-75% for A* in Biology and Maths ?

Grade boundaries are a reflection on the paper and performance of pupils in that year, so comparing year to year is not wholly reliable plus no one can tell you if they will be the same , higher or lower. There are also only a couple of years worth of linear papers so far? Be cautious and its probably not a bad idea to treat them as being higher to give yourself a tougher test just in case.
