2021 sociology grades (AQA A level)

Hello everyone,

I have a question and would like honest opinions.

As you all know the exams for 2021 have been cancelled and my school has been heavily focused on making us take exams (mainly high controlled exams).

Throughout all my exams I have been receiving roughly 69% in my a level sociology which my teacher says is a C grade. Which I was okay with until I started looking at past grade boundaries for a level sociology and other official websites which makes average grade boundaries for AQA A level Sociology which state then I'm actually getting low A's/high B's.

If this is the case and my teacher's gradings are wrong should I have a private discussion with her about the situation or is she right for giving me a C or is the past grade boundaries and average grade boundaries more reliable as there is a big difference?

(I hope this makes sense...)
