# Edexcel Maths higher boundaries A*-A

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

Definitely. The last question was really confusing. However, the rest of the questions weren't that bad. The inverse one was also a weird one. Should be just a bit lower than average
That inverse proportion question catched me out...i did not expect them to present the question like that. I hope grade boundaries for an A are around 125-130 because i messed up badly on this paper.

Last one. Really pissed me off
I thought i was the only one who used pythagoras! I got the last bit wrong though. Were we meant to use pythagoras? Everyone did it a different way...

Well Pythagoras would only work if we have a calculator as the triangle wasn't a right angle, and I didn't notice that. But don't worry, I asked at least 50 people after the exam and I haven't come across 2 people who said the same answer, so a lot of people got that question wrong. This means the grade boundaries will be lower

That one was really stupid. The grade boundaries will be lower than average, so don't worry

No they won't, they'll be higher.
This was an easier paper than normal.
6. So what are people thinking a B will be? 100?

my teacher said
A* - 170
A - 140
B - 110
C - 70
these are the 'safe' grade boundaries to guarantee that grade. however this usually means that the actual boundaries r lower, depending on the difficulty.
:'( I'm going to have to probably resist this year. Ugh it feels like all the hard work I put in this year has gone to wast. I'm really messed up the first paper. It think it was because of the pressure and I seriously messed my timing up.

I'm not saying it was a hard paper. I got 90+ in practically all past papers, and I know that although this one is like a normal paper, A LOT of people got the last question wrong, which deducts the grade boundaries. I will only be 1-2 marks lower than average

100-105 should be a B
10. (Original post by Faizanasif)
100-105 should be a B
You reckon? Was 95 last year and people were saying the last paper was hard too. Think I got 50-55 on the first paper and I need a B so another 50 should be alright shouldn't it?

Last years was harder than this years. I'd say this years would be the midpoint of June 2015 and November 2015, so should be a few marks less than average as it was harder than a normal paper but not too hard for it to be as low as last years It all really depends on how hard the next paper is
12. Can anyone give me a clear cut answer of what they believe the grade boundary for an A will be out of 200 ? I'm seeing so many opinions that I can't understand what's what anymore. I got around the 70s ( mid to high )mark for the first paper. I'm aiming for an A because Maths is not my strongest subject. Thanks.

Official grade boundaries usually come up after the exams like around August I think idk but I'd say 140/200

Right. Thanks. Is this the highest you think it'll be or the lowest ?
