When I did that course (2000-2003), I seem to remember the boundaries being something like 75 for an A, 65 for a B, 55 for a C, 45 for a D. However, those are after your marks have been scaled, so don't count on them being right.

I've since tried to find out properly, they may all be 5% higher than I initially posted (80% for an A), but these are still after scaling.

Edexcel grade boundaries

Isn't it all points now at edexel? I thought that this was how all the AS/A2 exams worked?

OCR (and others I think) award out of 300 points

240 for an A
210 for a B
180 for a C
150 for a D
120 for an E

The above is for AS, and for A2 level these are doubled.

However, actual marks are 'scaled' meaning that with a mark of 90% or so, you can get 100%

Also, at A2 level an A grade goes to those with points totals ranging from 480/600 to 600/600 - Hardly discriminating for top pupils is it, especially so as you can re-sit papers over and over again!
