# Edexcel maths 2016 grade boundary predictions Watch

1. (Original post by viperimz)
I personally found it quite easy (but of course made stupid silly errors) but most people it seems found it slightly harder compared to previous papers so i think similar grade boundaries to last yr so:
A*- 158 (79 for each paper)
A- 127 (63/64 for each paper)
B- 96 (48 for each paper)
C- 65 (32/33 for each paper)
I personally think you'll need 60 marks for an A on both papers (more or less on each) because although some found it easy, as I have read, the questions (as per usual) were worded strangely in that you had to unpick them to make sense of them. As i expected and i'm sure others did the questions were trickier than other past papers. The lowest I have seen a grade A is 62 marks. This could most definitely be lower which my maths teacher and other maths teachers have agreed on. This is for anyone aiming for a grade A like me

Although the calculator paper will influence this I counted up my marks and I got 61 marking extremely harshly so for me if I get even a bit higher in the calculator paper that will secure me a grade A
3. 50-55 for B

65-70 for A

80-85 for A*
4. The questions weren't hard at all but very weirdly worded, a lot of people stumbled on this test so around 60-68 for an A
5. Yes your very right including me a lot of people in my school messed up on some questions even though the test was one of the easiest ive ever seen.

I think the test had too many traps for people to mess up loool like i found some of the wording misleading
7. yh w
8. Yup i usually get over 90 in my mocks but the weird wording made me doubt myself so much! I estimately got between 72-76 marks
9. i know a grade boundary for b will never be more than a 100 when the two papers are combined. so expect around early to mid 50s. pretty sure u secured a b

12. (Original post by MARHQ)

Thats never gonna be them, for an A* It would definitely be over 150
13. A* - hopefully between 160-165

but I think between 165-170.
14. (Original post by meechy darko)
anyone know what it would be for a C on the foundation paper?
Around 75 from each paper so 150 marks
