My predicted boundaries:
9:198-200 (Last Year = 202)
8:165-169(Last Year = 170)
7:133-136(Last Year = 139)
6:105-108(Last Year = 109)
5:78-84 (I think at max 90) (Last Year = 79)
4:58-62 (I think at max 70) (Last Year = 50)
3:40-48 (I think at max 55)(Last Year = 35)

Anyone else agree? Had something similar in mind?
Cheers.

Yes that’s what me and quite a lot of people were predicting. Hopefully these are roughly the correct boundaries

After about December in year 10, the training teacher watching our class was told to teach us for the remainder of the year as practice... NEVER AGAIN. Oh my days those were the worst lessons of my life . Thank god I had my normal teacher back in year 11

These are very realistic, as they should drop but like 4/5 marks max.

I think that November 2018 was harder than June 2019, so the boundary should fall between then and June 2018. Obviously the November cohort is less abled generally so it will be closer to June

my maths teachers had a meeting when all the exams were done and said that June 2018 paper 1 and 2 were relatively fine and paper 3 was extremely hard with the paper we've done people were struggling in the first paper found paper 2 fine and struggled even more in paper 3 our paper was nowhere near June 2018 ita going down possibly 9 -7 marks down

I agree. Grade boundaries are going to drop. They would have been fine if only paper 3 was bad, but people were also struggling with paper 1.

Paper 1 was harder than June 18. Paper 2 was simlar/easier. Paper 3 was one of the hardest papers yet in the spec. Because of that they'll drop, but not as much as people are expecting. The boundary will be lower than Jun18 and higher than Nov18, so I predict 199 for a 9 ish (sorry, I'm not very familiar with the other grade boundaries)

thank you ! have you seen the jump between grade boundaries that examiners do honestly you would be shocked, they can go down by 15 marks sometimes ! i get that happened due to the exams being new and all but honestly
i think the grade 7 will go as low as 126 marks

How many marks do you think you'll get vs what do you usually get in mocks?

I think you very well could get a 7 if the boundaries drop low enough. Good luck anyway

127-135 marks that is definitely at least a 6 maybe even a 7 if the boundaries go low enough.

Paper 1 and 2 was similar to last years difficulty, but paper 3 was the anomaly. That's why they should drop but like 4-5 max.

I am stressed about results day. Hopefully not about maths but chemistry physics and English language. In the English exams, I don’t think my story was great and I do wonder about how I did on the literature questions. And had a bad head ache on paper 1 chemistry and paper 2 physics was crap. So I am extremely worried right now
