    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)

    C will be around 65 (60-65 maybe) I think, you should get a C if you got above 70 (if you added the marks right)

    I'm not sure if you will get a mark for that questionnaire answer you put!

    Maybe if the examiner is lenient, but it could very likely also not get you a mark :/

    Best of luck though


    - you'll get a mark for 'no time frame' though

    The foundation paper looks a lot more like a higher paper!
    Grade boundarie on C, how many marks you think you need to get a C? Iused the unofficial markscheme and gave harsh marks and got over 70 marks in total.

    Also on question 3a would it count if i put that 'often' was repeated two times in question and answer boxes.

    70 marks is definitely a C don't worry (if you did get 70 )

    Official mark schemes are released when they make the papers available on the website, so June 2015 paper + mark scheme became available like a month ago, so our paper + official mark scheme will be available in like May lol
    (but the teachers may have access to it early - i know they have access to the paper after 10 days after exam)

    Can't wait, also do you get marks for working out even if the answer is wrong? Because if that's true then i would have extra 2-4 marks.

    if you look at any mark scheme there are B1 M1 A1 marks

    B1 is working
    M1 is method
    A1 is accuracy (e.g. correct answer)

    so you will get some marks for working (if the method is correct, but the numbers you used are wrong because of your previous answer - if it's completely wrong then no)

    unless of course you get a sad and grumpy examiner

    It was a tree diagram and you had to do 6 blanks/branches, so 3 different trees
    I think it's 1 mark per tree

    So 1 mark for every blank that you wrote, I may be wrong, but It should be like that
    If you got 2 right, that's 1 mark,
    If you got 4 right, that's 2 marks,
    If you got all 6 right, that's 3 marks
    At least that's what i think

    Ah, that's cool then.

    btw, you get marks for 'CORRECT' substitutions, but I think you still might get a mark for each formula,if you use the correct one, even if your numbers are incorrect. (Just talking logically)

    btw, I think you told me you were gonna ask your teacher what he/she thinks the grade boundaries would be, did you? (I think it was you, may have been someone else)

    they said that an increase of more than 8 marks from last year would be quite extreme
