Does anybody know how the 2022 Geography grade boundaries will approximately look like? Since this year the 3 papers add to 207, and in 2019 a grade 6 would be 123 marks less, does that mean a grade 6 for this year will be around 84/207? I hope this makes sense, thank you!

What they've implied (although not explicitly stated, as far as I'm aware, is they'll first look at the proportion of students obtaining each grade in 2019 and the proportion being awarded each grade in 2021. They'll then split the difference (i.e. take the mid-point) and set the grade boundaries such that this proportion obtain that grade this year.

A change in the total number of marks between 2019 and now (which seems odd, but I haven't checked) would be unaffected by this process.

Which exam board is this for?

Ohh okay, thank you. This is for AQA! They've taken out a section I think, so the amount of marks overall is lower.
