Hi, so the grade boundaries in the 2017 papers were 124 marks for a grade 7. In 2018, however, they went up by a staggering 15 marks to 139 marks for a grade 7 (I thought that they could only increase them by 10 marks maximum). So I’m wondering if it’s possible for the grade boundaries to go back down by 15 marks so they can be the same as the 2017 grade boundaries or at least could they go down by 10 marks because the 2019 papers were much harder than the 2018 and 2017 papers in my opinion. I understand that the 2017 papers were the first year to sit the next exams so it’s understandable that the grade boundaries were so low but the difference between 2017 and 2018 was massive, English was also the first for 2017 and they only went up by a few marks in 2018. I’ve calculated the marks and I believe I got 130 marks which by 2017 boundaries is grade 7 and by 2018 boundaries is a 6. I’m just curious what’s the maximum amount the grade boundaries could decrease by?

The 2019 papers were considerably more difficult than the 2018 set.

What do you think the grade boundaries for a grade 7 would be for the 2019 set?

Im not sure but I’d be very suprised if they increase from last year by more than 5 marks. My opinion - they will remain the same give or take a 1-2 marks
