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

    C in those papers
    Best to look at the grade boundaries. Do a paper, mark it and then use the grade boundaries for that year to see what grade it is.

    Yes you can.

    I sat the d1 paper today and I did so crap, I know I have a U because I could only get 20 marks.

    C2- SORRY CORE 2 is 65 UMS
    C3- predicted 65 UMS
    C4-predicted 62 UMS

    ^ Hypothetically speaking if I get those predicted UMS in c3 c4 are my chances of a C at a level maths gone?
    Mate you can do it! Whats done is done and worrying about how horrible you have will not do you any good. Just focus on you C3 and C4, if you are horrible in a certain topic than do exam questions for that topic and make sure YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THE QUESTION IS ASKING FOR. The exam literally just repeats questions but are written differently. All the best and stay positive


    I will put your UMS into this ^
    Also remeber you will probably get some UMS for D1 not 0, 40 UMS is an E
