AQA A-Level English Lang Coursework Grade Boundaries

I was wondering if anyone had estimates or know what the grade boundaries were in previous years for eng lang coursework? Out of 50, i got my grade back as 44/50 (88%) and i'm unsure how that'll stack up in the grand scheme of the grades

Hey that is grade A according to 2019 when grade boundaries where strictest, you were a mark off grade A* . However grade boundaries may be different this year but I think will be similar to the strictest grading of 2019 as we’re now going to pre pandemic levels and they are making marking strict again

is it not out of 100? i got my mark back out of 100 bc there's 2 pieces of course work at 50 marks each..?

You're right you need
90/100 to get A*
82/100 to get A
69/100 to get B
57/100 to get C
45/100 to get D
33/100 to get E
If below 33, it is a U

this also changes by a few marks every year, so if you were to go off of 2019's grade boundaries it'd be 92 for an A*

correct, it all depends on how hard all the students thought the paper was, so if alot of them get bad grades the grade boundaries could be lower and vice versa
