They will be higher. and a grade C
For one paper not both, i'd imagine a middle B as out of both paper (last year) to get a c was only 62 and a B was 98.
2. i got 63, can i still get an A* overall?

There quite low? where did you find these
student room garde boundaries are always usually wrong. The A* for this will probs be mid 80 as it wasnt too bad. I got 81% with harsh marking

You would basically need full marks on the calc and to pray for low boundarys.

You'd have to ace the calc and hope for a nice low boundary.
6. What would 30 marks approximately be as a grade?
7. What are the grade boundaries?

A* ~ 78/100
A ~ 63/100
B ~ 48/100
C ~ 33/100
I think it could be 4-5 marks higher, considering it was easier than last years paper and last year it was around 76 for an a*.
9. Can anyone tell me if I will get one mark on the last question at least for doing this

No, as you got the method wrong, not multiplying it by 1/2 to get √6/12.
12. Usually some find there is an easier and harder paper for maths, do people think this will be the hardest or the next paper will be harder?
13. What would you say the minimum mark you needed for a C was?

Oh thanks but lol I meant 42 for the estimation question, would that still be full marks?

As long as you rounded to an appropriate degree of accuracy and did the calculations correctly then I dont see why not. It depends what numbers you chose.

last year it was literally 26% for a c. 48 for a b.

Why everyone's saying it's 60s for a b, idk, stop worrying people. grade boundaries are usually MUCH lower.

Would you say if I got 32-35 marks in both of the papers I would be safe? Or nah?
