    I think the grades are likely to be slightly higher but I think you are in the right ballpark (depends on Paper 2).

    ".........got hard quite quickly...." - Basic fractions for 6 marks at Question 18???

    But I agree there were some tough questions.
    Lol - yeah, apart from the basic fraction questions, the second half was harder.

    I don't think the grade boundaries will be higher than the June 2014 paper - or, if it is higher, then it won't be much higher. IMO, I think the June 2014 paper was about the same standard, if not a little easier.

    This is a link to the June 2014 paper (just for comparison's sake).

    Question 13. Worst case scenario I got 92/100. I. HAD. NO. CLUE. What to do for that question, I must have just had a massive brain fart. Still kicking myself over it.

    The one where Ali's rent rises by 20% and you have to calculate the percentage Ali will spend on rent the next month.

    It's a really easy question, just no idea why I flopped on it. Feels bad man

    I had all the working out to gain marks, however it was all over the question page. Would that cost me marks?

    I somehow forgot the formula for the area of a circle and did the whole circle in a square question using 2piR instead of piR^2 :banghead:
