    Will they though? Have they lowered them before when people have particularly struggled?
    Last year as a result of the Hannah's sweets 3 mark question (which I could easily do) they lowered the grade boundary by 7 marks so I would assume so xx

    Don't worry. A wise teacher once told me that if the cleverest students in the year group are finding the exam hard, odds are it was a difficult paper and the grade boundaries are lowered. If it's anything like last year's boundaries, we only need 20-30 marks for a C. I don't think I've done that well either but we have Paper2 to save our backsides. The majority of this paper was hard, so paper2 is likely to be easier

    At the start of the paper I was whizzing through, like a question complete every few seconds... But then the goddamn circles and everything else after that appeared and I flopped... Completely,

    I was aiming for an A*... I might get an A* but you can never know. I am comfortable I got an A but in all honesty, I will cry if I get an A overall.

    In general, the paper wasn't the easiest. A lot of the foundation questions I left out initially and I panicked. However, I found the higher questions easier ironically and when I came back to answer the foundation questions, they were easier to answer because I was more confident.

    If I want an A*, then I need to secure it, I'll need 90+ marks in the calculator. You never, know, we could all get A*s!

    The exam was difficult with 2 or 3 questions that were disgusting but overall I'm praying they lower the grade boundaries so I can get an A

    I'm aiming for an A, I probably got like 60 marks so I'm counting on the calc paper to be better
    Yh same, I got 58 marks and I'm aiming for an A. We need to recover and try and get 75-80 marks in the calculator paper to get an A

    Good luck.

    Aim for a minimum of 72 marks in calculator paper and your A grade is secure
