    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

    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

    Does anyone know how much a B Grade is roughly overall? For 2016
    I got around 45 in one paper and around 50 in the other? So 95, what grade you do think that would be?
