    wat grade would 60 in paper 1 and 74 in paper 2 be ?
    Probably an A but not definitely. You'll have to wait and see on results day.

    Definitely an A, and it could be an A* depending on the grade boundaries. Good luck!
    Hopefully an A*! Thank you

    That's really close to the A/A* border. If I was to take a guess, it would be an A, as last years paper was harder so the boundaries are likely to go up. However you're so close to the border that you can't know for sure until you get your results. Good luck!

    I think you'll get all the marks for question 3 except for one if you've done the rest correctly? And yup you'll get marks for the correct formula but not the answer mark

    What if you just write the formula. Like if i didnt know one of the sin questions but put the forumla on the front page there alone. Can you get marks for that? Plus i heard you get marks for understanding some of the question. Is this true?

    They're super high

    170 = A*
    140 = A

    And that's all I remember
