I got around 130-140 marks on both papers? Do you think I have a chance of getting an A?
It will definetely be a stable A
2. (Original post by Vorsah)
In total I think I got 160-165.
Do you think that is enough for an A*?
No, it will most likely be a high A. Almost defnetely not an A*
3. On non calc paper I counted 81 marks minimum but 87 marks maximum

On calc paper I counted 85-90 marks

Have I done enough for an A*?

Using our min marks. Then it will be an A. However if u can get the extra 7 marks then its an A*
5. On Question 23, if you included working out which includes some of the equations in the model answer working out, then how much credit would you get for it?
6. that wass the most hardest paper i got an a in the last paper but i think i got the same as this paper was so much harder

1/2 marks max
8. I think I got 84 minimum for the calculator and 87 for the non calculator, would that be a high A or A*?
9. would 89 on the non calc and 97 on the calc be enough for an A*?

That would be an A
14. On question 16d the answer on the model answers were 8 but I got 9, I should still get the mark right?
15. Why are you keep asking if your marks is good enough for a certain grade. No one knows and no one can predict it because this exam is weird. Just wait till they release the boundaries.

Would 79 in non calculator and 94 in calculator paper be enough for an A*

When do they release grade boundaries?

Honestly, you're a moron, you claim to have gotten those high marks which is 93% yet you are not sure whether it's an A*? You're either really stupid or simply lying about what you got seeing as it was 80% for an A* in the November series.

Chill, or maybe he just wanna boast. Everyone boast SOMETIME in the exams.
You do good, you boast, you do bad you complain about people boasting
