    i took S2 slightly worried though, because apparently you needed 68 for an A this January !!! With regards to C4 , my teacehr said the grade boundaries tended to remain fairly constant throughout the years ( 80, 70, 60 % etc ) Don't know whether thats good or bad !!!

    c1 was okay (went excellently for me), so maybe average.
    c2 was really easy (for most) so probably high raw marks.
    m1 was average (from what i hear on tsr, but was really tough for me)
    m2 was easier than expected (easier than m1 for me) so expect higher raw marks.
    c3 and c4: hoping for an easy paper WITH lower boundaries.

    Edit:This is just a speculation, not a discussion of the actual (m2?) exams.

    Haha, I know, when our teacher gave us the paper to do as a mock over study leave, I didnt think it was too bad , but the idea of 68/75 being only 80 Ums was slightly worrying...( so like 1 mark could cost 3 UMS :eek: )
    Yeah June wasnt too bad, I think the rectangle question has caused a bit of a stir !!! All sorts of numbers/answers/possible theories being thrown about on TSR , and amongst my friends ( fingers crossed please be 2/3 or please give me some credit for my working!!! ) :p:
    Ahhh C4 :/ I keep doing really silly things, and getting differentiation and integration confused !! One thing I'm worried about is having enough time, I ususally always finish quite early , but when I work through the past papers, I'm quite slow :o: I just hope its a fair paper !!!

    Oh, you mean GCSE Maths
    Most of us assumed you mean A level maths..

    Just aim for 80 % - A, 70% B...
    it gets standardised based on difficulty
