    C1 was a very standard paper, you seem to be blaming the paper for your mistakes but compared to C2 .... C1 was very similar to past papers.
    I'll even break it down ...
    First question - Extremely easy surds question ...
    Basic simultaneous equation question ... just like any other
    Easy Integration and Differentiation question ... just like any other
    The easiest first part sequences question so far ... it was a literal joke
    Basic roots question ... obvious to complete the square
    Basic tangent and more differentiation questions ... just like any other
    Question 7 may have thrown people off but it was the usual thing that you would do so it was a standard introduction to a good thinking question
    Basic factorisation and drawing of sketch ... and length
    Easy sequence question that doesn't even require any thinking
    Easy integration ... last parallel may have thrown people off but it has been in a few past papers and was a standard question

    So it was a standard and fair paper ... if you're expecting the grade boundaries to go down for that you may need to think again.
    It certainly wasn't as simple. But I agree, I doubt C1 grade boundaries will be low. Probably just under the average, just.

    I know that a my mum who is a maths teacher said the paper was quite a hard paper. Because it had quite a few twisty questions. Just because some people saw what the twists were, most in my year didn't so lost a lot of marks. Even though I don't think the boundaries will be ridiculously low, I do think they will be lower

    I'm so upset with how c2 went ( did so much practice and was getting high a's in every past paper...
    If I were to get 80% in c1 and 60% or maybe less in c2, what do you think I'd need to to get to secure an A overall?? (I'm doing S1 next) I'm just really hoping that I can still get an A because I've worked so hard with maths throughout the year and I know how disappointed I would be, might resit these two next year to help with my overall A level grade! Replies would be appreciated to reassure me, many thanks

    for 9a on c2 where you had to prove the cylinder. I wasn't able to do this but I wrote down 'pie r^2 = 75 as well as the formula for the surface area 2pie r h +2 pie r^2 would I get any marks? moreover when factorissing by (2x+1) for question 3 I think I only did half, I wasnt able to find the other numbers I got up to 3x^2 +0x^2-48 and left it there. How many marks would I get in total?

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but Did anyone do the jan 15 international paper as revision and realise that the binomial expansion in our paper this year was identical to the one in the jan 15 ial except from a sign change and the remainder theorem was almost identical aswell?

    Really annoyed at myself in thus paper wrote down and used the wrong equation on one question and didn't realise question 9 existed till three minutes before the end. From the sounds of it people haven't done so well so hope the grade boundaries drop

    Seems like you got an A in both papers, just keep up the mark

    80% will be fine

    They're both probably high B's so you'll need a solid A in s1 but depends on grade boundaries. Just aim to do really well in s1 in case the grade boundaries for c1 and c2 are like 62/63 for an A. My advice aim for 90 ums which is 69/70 in s1 just to be totally safe of getting an overall A grade
