    I can't seem to find any past examiners reports on OCR's site so some guideline on the grade boundaries for these two modules would be most helpful!

    I've did two Core 2 past papers today and my marks were quite contrasting:
    - January '05: 55/72
    - May '05: 66/72

    I am asking about the RAW grade boundaries out of 72. With Maths, usually you need to get more than 80% RAW to get 80% UMS (a). It's just how high I am wondering.

    How's revision for C2 going along people who are sitting it in less than two weeks time!?

    At the end.

    Haven't started any revision yet, and I might not bother for C2. It's going alright, but I really need to cut out the silly errors. I made two horror errors in the last practice paper I did.

    Ah thanks for the link Glutamic Acid!

    C2 Jan '07:
    A = 57/72
    B = 49/72
    C = 41/72

    S1 Jan '07:
    A = 59/72
    B = 52/72
    C = 45/72

    Hmmm...looks like I'm looking at an A for C2, not sure about S1 though. :s:
