Just wondering what you guys think the grade boundaries will be for yesterdays Higher Physics Exam?

Personally I think it was bit harder than 2005 but just wanted to get your thoughts on the matter.

Any replies will be much appreciated.

This probably doesn't help much because I didn't actually sit the exam but grade boundaries never really go up or down by more than 2 or 3% a year.
Last year they were:
A=66%
B=51%
C=38%
D=31% (please remember though that a D is actually a fail, a lot of people get mixed up with this)

The best way to find out is by asking your teacher because they are likely to know how difficult the exam was in comparison to previous years exams, especially if they are a marker.

And a news paper publishes what some teachers and pupils thought about the exams a few days after each exam, I think its The Times or The Guardian.

EDIT: it was actually The Herald

is a D a fail :S new to me... o well. Seemingly tho, if you get a D in your higher you get an appeal to get an A in int 2.

if you ask me thats unfair as its harder to get an A in int2 than it is to get a A in a higher.
