    Attachment 547585 ok so if you look at this you can see the highest grade boundaries was june 2013. I just did the non calc paper and managed to get 96/100 whereas the 2016 paper we did I only managed to get high 80s maybe low 90s. It was definitely apparent that the june 2013 paper was much easier. Do you think the grade boundaries will be around 169?

    Your 2013 figures are for the November paper. Based on your rationale the grade for A* will be lower than 165. I would not be so certain of this.

    Hopefully! I really want it to be 169/170 because realistically it's not gonna be lower. Btw when do the grade boundaries come out?

    I think I got around 170 marks too. Had a poor non-calc paper but smashed the calc. Last year was 155 for A* and although that will rise I can't see it rising by 15. That' too much.

    I am exactly the same as you! Did really badly in my non calculator, but amazingly in my calculator!! I think I've got between 168-171. I am praying this is an A*😭 they can't surely raise the boundaries to 170!!! I reckon about 165

    Aww unlucky! Hopefully we did get the A*! I really need it and something is telling me that I haven't got the A* and I feel like EdExcel will increase it by a lot for some reason

    Does anyone know what the grade boundaries could be for a B and A? I've only seen people's opinions on the boundaries for an A* but unfortunately I'm not that clever! 😁

    Last years were:
    B - 95/200
    A - 125/200

    I'm suspecting a B will be around 104 and an A around 136, possibly higher but I know a lot of people who struggled with the papers so they won't increase massively in my opinion - even though the majority on here found it easy

    A C in June 2015 was 65 marks and in June 2014 was 57 marks. Therefore you might have scraped it!
