In the above data sets, the exam board label is the overall grade boundary for that set of exams, and the papers indicate the grade boundaries for each individual paper.
Download the above data as an Excel spreadsheet here.
You can find the archive of grade boundaries here for AQA and Edexcel.
AQA: the worst-performing paper was US Government and Politics (Paper 2). UK Government and Politics (Paper 1) has become the best-performing of the three papers, overtaking Political Ideas (Paper 3). Overall grade boundaries are down roughly 3% across the board compared with 2019.
Edexcel: Global Politics continues to be the toughest route taken, however, its increase in grade boundary has reduced slightly over last year. Paper 2 is the best performing of the two UK papers. Overall grade boundaries are roughly 5% lower across the board compared with 2019.
It’s important to remember that A Level Politics grade boundaries fluctuate every year, and there is no defined percentage for each grade. Where there are more tough papers, grade boundaries may be lowered, and they may be raised where a cohort find a particular paper easier.
