the non calc and calc were fairly easy compared to previous maths edexel examS so the grade boundaries will be v high ,roughly:
A*-170/200
A-150-169
B-115-149
C-95-114
your predictions are miles off an A* is roughly 160 an A grade wont be any higher than 135 the exams this years were not that easy

Sorry mate you got the depreciation one wrong
Yeah I figured that out. Thanks though!
9. So give or take I got around 145 for both papers combined using the unofficial mark scheme. Will I get a bloody A ? I'm actually crying now. People have said the grade boundary for an A will be at 155-60.

10. Q. 14 I believe its not 3. i think it ends up as 5.6.... And you round down as 5 since you cant have 0.66 bars. I would like to see the question again please if anyone possibly can.
11. I think I got 30.1 degrees for the last question ?did anyone else , was I just being reatrded
