    I was wondering,where on the AQA website would you find the grade boundaries for this because I was looking at previous grade boundaries and it is hard to find the IGCSE grade boundaries because I am going to take this GCSE next year.
    You can't find IGCSE grade boundaries on AQA because they haven't offered IGCSE qualifications.

    This is a new qualification, I'd expect the boundaries to be on their web site with the GCSE info later this week.

    Looking at the website,I have just realised that IGCSEs have only started to be offered by AQA,from this year because I thought with a range of IGCSEs available,that they must have done them before this year.

    From the perspective from someone who has done A-Level Maths, some of the topics e.g. calculus are covered to the difficulty of AS Level. Matrices aren't even MENTIONED in A Level Maths, only in Further Mathematics AS Level. However, the breadth of topics which are AS level material is woefully small. I'd view this as a collection of the most challenging GCSE questions with some calculus and matrices thrown in.
    It's a valuable learning experience for the top GCSE students wanting to do A-Level Maths and probably A-Level Further Maths. AS Maths won't get more difficult than the calculus and matrices in this qualification, there's just a lot more other stuff :P If you found it hard, don't be surprised!
