    What school do you go to? Is it a public school?
    Private.

    Almost everyone doing Maths at A-Level here has an A* in IGCSE Maths. I think only 10 people out of the 160 last year got an A, but none of them are doing maths. Yeah we are pretty good at Maths...and most people seemed to think that grade boundaries for C1 would probably be around the 53-54 mark, despite very good mathematical abilities. Everyone thought that C2 was average and S1 was slightly easier. Although no-one thought that there were any extremely difficult/easy exams, apart from C1.

    Ah right fair enough. I'm at a state 6th form, but it's a very academic one and the grade requirements to get in are high!

    Does mr m not do a mark scheme for stats?
    (Original post by SGHD26716)
    I was thinking the same.
    No need - I've checked, verified and corrected the mark allocation on the unofficial mark scheme on google docs created by Metasysta.

    My teacher said 80% in AS and 90% average in c3 and c4
    You can actually get 60% average in AS and still get an A* ... as long as you get 100% in all 3 exams at A2!

    Do i need 90% in AS maths to get an A star in a level? Assuming i get 90% in A2
    70% would suffice in AS as long as you get 90% in A2. You need to average 90% in C3 & C4, with an overall average across the 6 modules of at least 80%.

    I thought you need an A at AS to be eligible for A*

    Not D1 as we don't have anyone sitting D1 this year, but I've done the S2 paper just now and concur with xsanda's solutions here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...3994951&page=3

    I've just done it as a mock too! I didn't get it. We have the markscheme here but we don't have any actual questions. My mind has gone blank and I can't remember them.

    Hi,

    I've done most of the past papers but am not sure what else I can do to practice.
    Are there any resources/other papers that I can do?
    Also, really struggling with permutations and combinations so is there anything I can do to improve?

    Thanks!
