Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
1. (Original post by GKT)
Same here, I need C to get into Uni. I have been counting through the papers we have just had. I think I got about 83/84 for the first one. The calculator one I messed up badly that I think I got 67/68. I hate myself for this mess. I hope the grade boundary doesn't go higher than 144!
do you have the paper?

ugh wanted an A. But in total i got around 130, so thats a B.
Im gonna say 60% likely to get an A and 40% a very high B! Don't worry about it. I hope it's 130 as well

No but the first paper was posted in a thread that i didn't follow. The 2nd 1 i counted on a thread entitled foundation mark schem (my answers ) didn't tag it through. I will post the link when I find it.

9. I counted my marks in three ways (according to Mrkibria's solution file & the youtube video for calculator soultions): Harsh: Medium and Lenient marking.

Harsh - 71/200
Middle - 72/200
Lenient 74/200

Which do you think would be a C grade?

I've linked the solutions that I used here:

10. The higher papers are on page 16 of this thread, just letting everybody know.
11. I think the grade boundaries will be 132 because in my opinion the forst paper was easier than last years but the second papers were about the same and even the first paper the last question was much more harder and the second paper was a lot wordier

I am not sure but i checked grade boundaries from 2009 and seems within 3 years they keep going down then after 3 years they go up....by how much I don't know. Also am told grade boundaries depend on a lot of factors.
13. So this uear is it expected to go up or down

What marks you got when using the unofficial mark scheme
20. (Original post by lukey0071)
True, but I am amazed how easy the questions were in the 2015 exam and the grade boundaries are so low, I mean for A = 125 marks!!!
That was beyond easy to get an I hope this year they only increase it by 4/7 marks
