Ocr a physics 2023 grade boundaries

What do u guys think it will be. I think paper 1 was very hard but paper 2 was alright - I still think compared to other paper 2s it was one of the harder ones.

My guess: paper 1 - similar to 2018 grade boundaries
A* - 83
A - 72
B - 60
C - 49
D- 38
E - 27
U - 0

Paper 2 - similar to 2019
A* - 87
A - 77
B - 65
C - 53
D- 41
E - 30
U - 0

Tbf I thought paper 1 was sm harder than 2018 so I was thinking like 75% for an A*. And for paper 2, I feel like there was so many explain questions, so even though it was nice to get into, I thought the grade boundary was going to be like in between 2018 and 2019 where it was 81% for an A* in 2018 so like 84% ish. But I’m rlly not sure. Hopefully paper 3 is nice

I guess all we can do is try and smash paper 3 at this point (and pray the electromagnetism question isn't too many marks lol!)

What do you guys think now that we've done paper 3?

Your wish came true at least

I think like 76/100 A* p1 and 84/100 A* p2 and 57/70 A* p3 as it was a nice p2 and usually it’s 55/70. So overall like 217-220/270 A*?

Sounds about right overall. I'd say paper 2 grade boundary was slightly higher, but paper 3 slightly lower because it is only nice if you revised the right topics. There are definitely people out there who went all in on electromagnetism for p3 because it didn't come up in p2

Based on my calculations about what I got I think I'm sitting around that 220 mark. Hoping for the best
