    I just sent you Set 4!

    For me - I don't know what happened but in Unit 1 & 2 I was one off a B (I got a C in both) and that's put me in a tricky situation.

    Does anyone know roughly what I'd need to get in this paper to get a B?

    Thanks a lot

    Jack
    Thanks!

    I think if you get around 35-40 out of 80, you should get a B overall. Don't forget, this exam is work 55% of the final grade compared to the other two!

    However, if anybody has a proper idea on the grade boundaries, i'd love it if they shared it with us. I'd like to know how many marks I'd need for an A.

    From the practice papers, I've noticed the questions in this exam can be quiet tricky and you can lose some 'easy' marks.

    Are you sure? According to the specification, this exam is worth 40%?

    It must be 40% then. I think it was 55% for last year.

    @ alj123 Yeah same :eek: because AQA are always making their papers harder than past papers and also we don't has any actual official past papers, just practise papers so they could catch us by surprise. Anyway good luck : hope you do well.

    Does anyone have a list or anything of the things that we'll need to revise?

    All I'm thinking of is:

    Circle Thereoms (geometry)
    Vectors
    Enlargements and Transformations
    Loci and Construction
    Trigonometry
    Quadratic Graphs


    Does anyone for sure know any more? Cos I had such a poo teacher this year who never really told us
