Edexcel maths 2016 grade boundary predictions Watch

1. (Original post by tianshan)
Who would call you a retard if you achieved an A in maths?
Because I actually used to do foundation maths at set 7 ( sets means how clever you are, the higher 7 the least clever and the lower means more clever)

I worked so hard and I moved up from 7 to set 2 in one year, very rare to see people to move up 5 sets.
I was shocked that people called me nerd and retard.
So...... That's why people still calling me this year

I think you will get an A* just hope the grade boundaries stay the same or decrease.
I really hope so! With this paper it was soo easy to make silly mistakes and then looking back you just regret it so badly.

It's so annoying cos in the mocks I was easily able to get 95+ but in the exam due to poor time management I lost so many marks! I knew how to do the questions but because I didn't have time I couldn't do them.
Also june 2013 the grade boundaries was 165 for an A* and it was soooo easy compared to the paper we did. I got 98/100 for that so I am not sure. I feel like because it's the last year with this syllabus they're gonna make the grade boundaries high because I think the last syllabus started in 2010 and if you see the grade boundaries increased by a lot so I am not sure

yh that should be an A.
Oh my God thankyou, for the quick reply!! I am not doing maths for a level but it would be nice to say goodbye to maths with an A!!
4. This sounds like a silly question but...

Is the unofficial mark schemes 100% correct?

I feel so weird because I counted 143-147 marks for both papers
5. My prediction is:
67-70 for a C
97-100 for a B
127-129 for an A
157-165 for an A*
However i hope they are lower than my predictions.
Also each grades there a difference of 30. So between A and B there is a difference of 30 marks, i realised the pattern.
6. Have you guys downloaded the papers we sat? If not I can put them up here!

No, hence why they're "unofficial", there's bound to be mistakes somewhere
8. Alltogether I got 85 with both papers will this be a C? TY!
9. Put them up please! Thank you! <3

It is possible it could be a C as it has never gone over 65 marks before.
11. Ok TY! I am begging to go I pass because I was predicted to get a D :'(

That's sometimes. There was a difference of 34 between an A and an A* and another year a difference of 31/32 I think. So around the 31 mark difference haha!

Those seem to be the most logical grade boundaries maybe 130 for a grade A tho

Thats never gonna be them, for an A* It would definitely be over 150
