    Hey, does anyone know what they are?

    Thanks for your help!

    Does no one in the whole wide world know? :sad:

    85% = A*
    75% = A
    and so on... (if my teachers are to be believed )

    It does change every year though i'm sure, up/down a few % depending on people's results.

    apparently its 90% and its set as 95% in my sch tests and mocks....and its the same for geo as well.....any thoughts guys??

    Please don't believe that:

    90%- A*
    80%- A
    70%- B and so on...malarck!!!!

    That is for UMS, which is the converted mark. Raw marks (the actual mark you score on your paper) vary each year, depending on difficulty, because they need X percent of people to get A*, and then Y percent of people to get an A, and so on!

    You can look at the OCR website for previous grade boundaries, as for some subjects they are quite similar, but others (e.g Science) really vary. But in a short answer, boundaries are never 'set' for each year!
