1. (Original post by Waveyalex)
I got 60 in paper 1 and 74-77 in paper 2 do u guys reckon that an A ???
Very high B or low A. Most likely low A if the marks you said are right
2. (Original post by pinkgrapefruitj)
What will be the grade boundaries for a B? I know last year it was 95, will it be higher?
95-100 I think (or 90-105)

B is in the middle of them
3. (Original post by ScrewTheExams)
You definitely got a B

A will be like 135, 130-140

These were the easiest papers I have seen in the recent years.
But.. i made those stupid mistakes :/
A grade A in 2014 was 133 and there exam was easier than this years or what do you think ?

7. b. Write are one fraction in its simplest for (x/x-1)- (x/x+1)2x/(x+1)(x-1) (3 marks)
If I managed to cross multiply and get 2x but made a small error on the dominator will I still get 1 mark for the correct numerator

You'll definitely get a mark for 2x. I can't say for sure but I think 168/200 for an A* 135 for an A?

You may have just scraped an A. I really do hope you get it. I'm doing maths, economics, biology and chemistry, what about you?

In 2015 an A was 125 does like 134 seem likely judging by the pattern in the table ?
16. On the circle theorem question would I get 2 marks for doing 90-48=42 and staying angles btween a tangent and radius are 90 ??

Our exam was definitely easier

I'm saying 135-140 for A for us (maybe 130-140) - but it probably won't be as high as 140, but that's the 'safe' mark that you got an A

yes,

at least 1 if not 2, but i would say 2
it also depends how many angle facts and working you needed to do, e.g. if you done 1/6 of the question then probably 1 mark, if you done like 1/3 of the question then like 2 marks

What do you think the grade boundary for a grade C would be?
I predict i got 31-33 on non calculator and 39-40ish on calculator

Also on the non calc question 3a would it count as a mark if i put that 'often' was repeated two times in the question and that there was no time frame. (weekly, monthly)

I found the sample non calc for next year really hard!
The foundation paper looks a lot more like a higher paper!
