    It wasn't me, I have only ever been involved with the Mechanics papers (though not involved in setting this year's).

    FP2 is CRAZY high. I got an A*, but wtf, it wasn't that easy.

    Well, if you can thank the people who were involved in the D1, M1 and S1 setting this year, do so! Beautiful boundaries.

    I haven't studied any of FP2, S2 or D2 this year, nor do I remember last year's C4 (I haven't been teaching it this year). I stick with my comments 2 posts up: they gave too may helpful hints in this year's C4. The same thing happened in 2010's STEP papers (paper I in particular?).

    Exactly. 67 implies that it was a piece of cake, which it certainly wasn't. I got 70/75 which is just one shy from A*. I'm so annoyed. I honestly thought 70 would have definitely been at least 90. Now my A* in FM is looking highly unlikely

    Came very close to a heart attack when I saw c4 grade boundaries, why do bad grades happen to good people?

    What about 67/75 for FP2?

    I'm reasonably happy with c3, c4, d1 boundaries although I did think c4 would maybe be 2 marks lower
    Fp2 seems pretty high but it was standard
    S2 and d2 seem really high :-( :-(
    I am hoping I've scraped an A in further maths But not confident....

    I think the C4 mark is fair as it was pretty easy, I just hope I can get well above 90 UMS to compensate for the C3 which wasn't so good.
