1. yes defo as last year was 55 to get c
2. (Original post by legend.786)
Guys i think that the grade boundaries cant be that high because u have to remember next years paper is going to be a lot harder so the if they raise it this year too much then next year if they want to put it down they will have to drop it by a lot

Personally my opinion

Thanks, I just did a rough harsh marking estimate on my store and totalled around 155-160 what do you think that is?

A very strong "A" grade. I don't believe the level of difficulty over the two papers was sufficient to bring the "A*" grade down to 160 but you never know- Good Luck and I hope they do !!
10. what do you think you got

Any ideas on what you need to get overall to get a C? I think I got around 37 marks on the first way, and I'm scared I didn't get enough in paper 2, even though it was an "easy" paper
I'm not sure if you've been answered already, but you probably need around 35 ish on this one for a C overall, if you took higher! It's usually about 65-70 for a C all together!
12. For the 5x+ 20y, If I put 1/4x + y, would I get one mark?!
Also, for the tree diagram, I put the workings as 0.05 x 0.8 , but I accidently put 0.4!!😡 would I get one for this as it was out of 2?

I think I have got around 168-170, is this enough for an A*?!
13. Can someone else please confirm whether this would get 1 or 2 marks?!
14. Guys on question 14 if i didnt put like cm^2 etc but all my number and answe is right will that be ok

It is very close. It would have gotten you an A* in the last six exams. Were these exams easier? If I HAD to make a call, I think you will get it.
16. How many marks would you get for the stratified one if you put 10 instead of 11.. I think it was out of 2 marks? I stupidly rounded down to 10 from 10.8 thinking there wasn't exactly 11 and you can't have 10.8 people! 🙈
17. Can I haven the markscheem for the calculator paper as well

Correct working will get you 1 mark.

Edexcel have accepted rounding up and down in the past but more recently have only accepted the correctly rounded number.

2 marks. They accept both.
