See news about leaked boundaries. My thoughts are that leaking boundaries is unprofessional and potentially causing undue stress to students. The media should take a lead on not publishing such leaked material. On the boundary itself 55% for an A grade is an embarrassment. I don't blame the exam boards though. The politicians who decided we needed harder linear exams and the constant need to meddle with education for political gain are the problems. It was simply impossible for these new exams and related resources to be properly implemented in the timescale that was allowed. The new GCSE were a mess and now, unsurprisingly, so are the A levels. Much though I don't want further change these exams are unfit for purpose. These ridiculous grade boundaries prove it and things need to been done otherwise students are simply going to make other choices.
