AQA Grade Boundaries Physics A level

What kind of grade boundaries are people expecting for this year, people seem very mixed on whether this year's papers were hard or not. How did you find this year's papers compared to past papers?

Past papers are a lot more easier compared to this year for paper 1 and 2. Haven’t rlly done any past papers for paper 3, so i cant rlly compare this years paper 3, to the other past papers. But the turning points module was acc quite decent. Practical paper was ok tbh, nothing amazing rlly.
I rlly want an A. But idk since my paper 2 went terribly wrong lmao. Paper 1 and Paper 3 was alright. It should be lower then 2019 hopefully.

The turning points was pretty good and I did reasonable on paper 1 even though the questions seemed a bit weird.
Just not sure I did well enough on paper 2 and the practical side though. Would like an A* but the A is what I need so I guess for now it's just hoping I did enough for at least that.

You never know, they are planning to give some more top grades out this year and I didn't find these papers any easier than many of the practice papers really

I won’t be too annoyed if I get a B. Il be over the moon for an A. After paper 2 my chances of getting an a* dropped fast. Felt so bad right after that crappy exam. At this point I jus wanna go uni lmao. Got maths left on Tuesday. Hoping for an easy ass paper.
I have edexcel stats and mechanics on tuesday

I don't necessarily think they were really easy papers but they went extremely well for me, super confident in them. Paper 2 was just a bit better for me I think.

Ah fair enough. For me paper 2 felt slightly harder. But I do think paper 1 was quite easy. Only thing bad about paper 1 was timing.
I’m a bit scared for paper 3. Literally cramming in stats and mechanics lmao.
