    I think it does say A- B- C-, but it counts as a B though.
    It just says A, B, C etc but you can get the breakdown from your school after a while. Not sure how long though.

    Pretty sure you do. I asked a Sixth Form friend of mine and he told me he got 199/200 marks for Maths, so you must get your marks back from each exam.

    Attachment 547585 ok so if you look at this you can see the highest grade boundaries was in june 2013. I just did the non calc paper and managed to get 96/100 whereas the 2016 paper we did I only managed to get high 80s maybe low 90s. It was definitely apparent that the june 2013 paper was much easier. Do you think the grade boundaries will be around 169?

    Maths is one of the only exams you do not get a breakdown on your results slips for, because it is linear. However, if you are eager you can contact your school and see your mark per paper or even mark per question! I know this as I sat in June 2015, Nov 2015 and June 2016. Good luck!

    Nobody knows, it all depends on the nation as a whole and the percentage of students they want to give A* to. They give A* to a certain number of students (around 5% last year). They won't just give the top 10% A*, they will give A* to those you demonstrate they are capable of A* by tackling the A* questions and getting them right. Past grade boundaries really have nothing to do with it. It my opinion Nov 2015 was harder than June but GB was 167 for A* in Nov compared to 155 in June. The setting of the GB depend on so much more than if the exam was easy or not. However, personally I can't see it going any higher than 170 simply because it has never done. Good luck with your results!

    Your 2013 figures are for the November paper. Based on your rationale the grade for A* will be lower than 165. I would not be so certain of this.

    As far as I am aware, it doesn't actually depend on the national results, hence GCSE results going up and down. A group of officials meet and decide how many marks are needed for a grade A, then work proportionally from that. This is based on the level of the questions asked, not how they are answered. I feel that these grade boundaries will be fairly average, ie 165-170 for an A*, 130-135 for an A,etc

    I am a maths teacher, but not very experienced in GCSE grades/marking etc

    Good luck all.

    Yeah it's mainly that but the government set some rules about the amount of students allowed to be allocated each grade. And when they grade it they look at the tasks for each grade, it is very rare A* and C will rise, usually A* rises and C lowers or vice verse (observed in June and Nov 2015).

    Primarily because I wanted to to be honest. School encouraged me to do it early and I remember my maths teacher in Year 9 telling me to not give up until I get an A*. Got 134/200 in June A, Got 166/200 in Nov A (1 mark off A*), and hopefully managed to get an A* this time! It's amazing what changes your attitude when someone believes in you! Plus I'm doing maths at A Level so I didn't really see the point of giving it up.

    Yeah I got 3.8 aswell
    It was 3.8. I believe you would get marks as follows:

    (1) correctly evaluated trial between 3 and 4
    (1) correctly evaluated trial between 3.5 and 3.9
    (1) correctly evaluated trial between 3.7 and 3.8
    (1) 3.8 as the conclusion

    I think i got that too. The angle was 75.
    I went wrong by forgetting to double the radius!
    Ah yes I did the same! Damn it what a silly mistake. Ah well we should still get some marks. I think we'll only lose 1 mark for that.

    By last years standards, that would be a
    B, but very close to an A (A is 145)

    A is not 145, the highest it has ever been is 141, and usually its about 125-135 for an A
