# Edexcel C2 20th May 2015 *Official Thread* watch

Guys what would I need in S1 if i got 74/75 in C1 and 55/75 in C2, I don't understand how UMS works.
Really depends on what the grade boundaries are, but just aim for full marks. For an A, probably 65-70 marks.

Well I got around 72/75 in C1 but in C2 I got 60/75, and I need a solid A in my other unit to get my A overall

Edit: which means around 65/75?
Ok thanks
3. this c2 paper was harder than jan 2010 and the grade boundary for that year was 54/75, soooo........

I did an alternative method for the logs question and got the same answers of y = 3/2 and y = 1/3. Will this score full marks? Attachment 403759

Going by last years UMS, I need 70 UMS in S1 to get an A overall. But yeah I am aiming for 70+ in S1

I think you'll need a mid A for an A overall around 68/75?

Well I'm both AS and A2 and you do need '+c' depending on the situation....differential equations being one

Ergh UMS and marks are confusing. I calculated to get 80% of the 225 total marks, I need 51 in S1 (which seems waaaayyyyy too low). And by total UMS, I need 70 more, which is a low B, which again seems too low.

But I'm hoping to get 70+ marks in S1 as it isn't really that hard
15. Is there an unofficial mark scheme available for the edexcel core 2 2015 paper...

17. this c2 paper was harder than jan 2010 and the grade boundary for that year was 54/75, so.
18. Not sure why some people are saying they need a high mark in their applied unit..

If you got 70+ in C1 that should be ~90 UMS. 60 here would be around ~76/80. Then you just need a B in your applied unit.
19. If you are only in year 12 I wouldn't worry too much...
I sat this paper as a resit from getting an E last year and I predict I have got 72/75 this time around. You will find C2 much easier after doing C3 and C4

Remember grade boundaries aren't always 80% often they're around 85% for an A
