    how was the paper 2 everyone?
    Paper 1 was hard. Paper 2 was much easier, even though it was still difficult.

    What grade do you think you got?

    yeah paper 2 was a lot easier than paper 1...i'll get something between 70-75
    i left the stationary points question bcos i cudnt differentiate(i actually wrote the steps to find stationary points and a note to the examiner that i cudnt differentiate but knew how to solve it LOL) and the last question in vectors so thats around 15 mks gone.....i cant really say which grade i m gona get cos the grade boundaries in further maths are soo unpredictable..and HIGH!

    Lucky you! Much more optimistic than me.
    I'd be lucky if I could manage a B. I'm suspecting a C. I was unlucky to have a bad math teacher for over half of the year.

    This gives you the previous grade boundaries for all the subjects in Edexcel. You can have a good idea of what the boundaries are this year according to the difficultly of the paper.

    i hope the grade boundaries are low because i think i did really bad in paper 1.. im so annoyed because paper 2 was so easy but didnt have time to finish the last question even though i was able to do it all! and it was worth 17 marks -.-.... these grade boundaries are really unpredictable.. january 2012 was easy but it was 67 for an A, june 2011 was a bit harder but 78 for an A or something like that i forgot..

    Great job! I heard even getting a B is very, very hard I'm now preparing for the exam next monday.. This is so scary.. I still have some types of questions that I have no idea how to answer.
    Any tips?
