# How do these Grade Boundaries Work for Edexcel Maths?

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

1. I am really confused as to how grade boundaries work! I did the Edexcel Mathematics B (Modular) course as shown in the image I have attached. I sat the Higher Papers 1, 2 and 3. If I got 55/60 in Paper 1, 58/60 in Paper 2 and 67/80 in Paper 3, what UMS would I get judging from the grade boundaries in the image? I am really confused about it! Thanks to anyone who helps me out 😉!

Judging from last year's boundaries:

55/60 = 110/120
58/60 = 115/120
67/80 = 141/160

= 366/400

This is an A*. Only just. Well done!

Thank you! If you wouldn't mind could you work out the mark I would get judging from the grade boundaries I attached in my first message? I really do not know what I am doing! 😅

On these boundaries:

55/60 = 110/120
58/60 = 116/120
67/80 = 134/160

Overall 360/400 where 360 = A* threshold.
