1. This should give some indication of the grade boundaries.

Past boundaries for A and A*:

Jan 2009: 59
Jun 2009: 58
Jan 2010: 61
Jun 2010: 60 (67 A*)
Jan 2011: 69 (72 A*)
Jun 2011: 61 (68 A*)
Jan 2012: 65 (70 A*)
Jun 2012: 63 (69 A*)
Jan 2013: 61 (68 A*)
Jun 2013: 61 (68 A*) (01), 57 (65 A*) (01R)
Jun 2014: 59 (66 A*) (01), 60 (67 A*) (01R)
Jun 2015: 62 (68 A*)

Average: 61.1 (68.0 A*)
2. Very very easy imo
3. 64 for an A imo

last vectors question (5mrks) and volume question (4mrks) were tricky, but everything else was manageable
4. I couldn't do the last vector question as well. I'm really worried if I will lost my A* because of that

So annoyed I ran out of time for that last question! could cost me A* as well!
6. For the last part of the vectors question like an idiot instead of adding the directional vector or a factor of it to vector P, I added the magnitude of the direction to vector P meaning that I got 3/5 for that (or 4 hopefully). The rest of the paper was very easy and I hope 73/75 is full UMS.

it wont be

it wont be
What 74 or 75 for full UMS then?
9. Will 69/75 get an A*
10. Can someone please tell me what 88ums would be? Totted up my marks and think I got 67 ish....

Full will definitely be 75 I reckon
12. (Original post by mcyn55)
Will 69/75 get an A*
Maybe, A* could even be 70
13. One of the easier papers of recent, but lots of areas to make silly mistakes (I made a couple myself on what would be otherwise be fairly simple questions). Last part of the vector question probably caused problems although it did appear in Jan 14 IAL (I got it wrong myself with the wrong scale factor, most likely a silly mistake). Same difficulty as June 12 imo. Will definitely be 75 for 100 UMS, possibly 68-70 for A* and 63-65 for an A
14. my predictions:
A* 69
A 63
B 57
C 50
D 44
E 38

I made the same mistake I did 5/2 not 2/5 for the scale factor ! How many marks out of 5 do you think that'll get?
