    An 'A' is predicted to be around 135 marks ish (predicted by my mum whom is a head of maths at Manchester grammar) so 88ish marks but to be sure aim higher.
    I think 135 would be unlikely as that's the highest it's ever been. I think more around 130 would be reasonable.

    Yes you will get full marks for that question since they are basically the same expressions.

    Most definitely an A*. Unless paper 2 is extremely easy, which I highly doubt.

    What do you think the grade boundaries for an A* would be, if the calculator paper was easy?

    The highest they've been in the last few years for our specification is 169/200 for an A*, I don't think they would be anything above that, and judging by this paper although it was surprisingly easy compared to last year's some people still found it hard, so I highly doubt they would be 169/200, they will definitely be higher than last year's though as 155/200(last year's grade boundaries) for an A* is a joke.

    I think 166 maximum for an A*
