I am totally shocked to see what the GCSE grade boundaries are in core GCSE subjects. For example in physics students only have to get 33% to get an A*, Chemistry 39% and English lit 49%

Are other exam boards like IGCSE and IB the same?

"And have a from DD1 and the girls at her super selective who worked bloody hard last year to get those "easy" A/A*s."

Why did they have to work specially hard because they are at a super selective? I would have though being in the top 2-5% often population would have made the A/A*s a doddle. Or is it only at comprehensives known to the Daily Mail where A*s are handed out like confetti?

grin It's actually the first line (word) of The Power Of Love by Frankie Goes To Hollywood. (Possibly with some extra i's , I didn't count)

I can change the number of i's if I want to make my comments unsearchable
