well your right on whats been said, but you never know bcs ive heard a few people say itll be lower bcs apparently were a dumb year group but some are sayin itll be higher, just make sure when you do past papers you dont go too easy on yourslef
when you grade yourself use 2019 grade boundaries and push the boundaries up by 2 3 marks for worst case scenario

Stop spreading false rumours. No-one knows anything about the grade boundaries - not even the examiners who set the papers!
Every paper has to be marked before they are set ...

No one knows that yet, not even the exam boards. They will mark the papers first to see what raw marks people get, and only then will they set the boundaries, and they will set them at a level where the correct proportion will get the required grades.

NO it doesn't - post a link. It says grade distributions which is quite a different thing.

Grade distribution means there will be roughly the same proportion of each grade as in 2019 - that doesn't tell us where the grade boundaries will be. The grade boundaries depend on the cohort and the difficulty of the paper.

Grade distributions is the distribution of grades, so to keep in line with 2019 results, they might decide on the top 5% getting a 9, the next 10% at 10 etc.

Grade boundaries on the other hand are the raw marks that are needed to get a particular grade. If students found a paper particularly hard, and on average everyone got lower raw marks than previous years, the grade boundaries would be set lower. Alternatively, if everyone found a paper easy, they would be set grade boundaries higher. This is why grade boundaries can only we set after all papers are marked.
