is this enough for an E

so from my aqa a level physics papers 1/2 i added up my marks and worst case i got 50 marks. say for some reasons i get 0 in paper 3. will this secure me at least an E because of how bad paper 2 was? sorry if this might sound dumb im just stressing out so hard and need reassurance

raw grade boundaries are available below % grade boundaries on AQA website, for 2019 an E was 62 marks across all 3 papers for astrophysics option
for 2023 (way lower grade boundaries ofc) it was only 42 for an E - plus obviously grade boundaries are likely to be quite a bit lower this year because of paper 2 so i’d say you have a pretty good chance
good luck for tomorrow, hope it goes well for us all!! :smile:

so grade bounadries are probs gon be around 2023 right? cuz of that paper 2. so even if it hovers around 42 +- maybe like 3-4. considering i got worst case 57, i should pretty much 100% be fine right ?

i think they’ll be ever so slightly higher than last year since paper 1 was decent, and hopefully paper 3 will be okay too. definitely not as high at 2019 though so maybe between 45-55ish so i’d say you’ll be okay :smile: plus there’s still plenty opportunity tomorrow to pick up more marks! i beg though stop catastrophising you will definitely be okay, it’s best not to waste energy worrying🙏
