    FairPlay to you, I heard if someone in Wales gets 100% that grade boundaries don't shift for 100 UMS?
    :O I didn't know that! Is that actually true or just a rumour?!
    I don't know whether to feel good or bad about that...

    C2 and S1 will literally be death sentences for the country after that C1 paper though.

    That's nonsense, such a system would be absurd.

    Yes, WJEC were recently told to make everything more difficult. Every exam for every topic will be harder.

    Why were they told this? How is this fair because we are competing for university spaces with other people who are doing easier exams. Everyone in UK should do the same exam board in my opinion, it's ridiculous!

    I think WJEC was actually easier than other Exam boards, so it was to make it fair.
    Of course, that means we have no accurate past papers to do, but that will in-turn lower the grade boundaries, so, I would assume it all works out.

    So, I put _/2_/11 instead of _/22.
    I missed out working out L (Got x = 40 and proved it, though.)
    Didn't use the negative root for 4.) b.).
    Didn't get A right for the binomial.
    Used the wrong sides of the Tan question.

    I'd say that's about, 9-ish marks lost.
    -1
    -2
    -2
    -2
    -2
    (In that order.)

    Hopefully, that's still an A. 64/75.

    My god.
    It's been a long, long day.

    My thought process there was: 9-5 = 4. Therefor, 64.

    On the bright side, I just finished a C2, C3 and and FP1 paper and got A's...hypothetically.

    Yeah, screw this, I'm going to bed.

    Is 65/75 good?
    I have to say that I don't like questions like this. It really depends on so many things. Sure, other people want to be nice and so if you ask whether a mark is good they'll always say yes, but in reality you'll know when your marks are good or not. If you now tell me your trying to get into a top 3 uni for a maths degree I'd say probably not, but anything else is probably a yes, to answer your question long-windedly.

    Good for what? For what degree? For which university? What were you aiming for? What was you potential? So , even "on average" I can't answer that question. But I can tell you that your mark will be significantly above the country's average.
