1. (Original post by amanii_ox)
too difficult? like 60% OF THE YEAR FOUND IT HARDISH
Yeah, it was a real mix in my year. Some people said they found it super easy, and others like myself found it challenging. I dunno maybe because it was under exam stress/conditions...

I was having a guess at what they might look like, this is not 100% correct. But I would use this as a maximum grade boundary, not a minimum.
really!! than i might get A*, i thought the grade boundary for A* would be something like 170-175.... but if 160 is the maximum than i guess i was wrong

Well... Seeing as the paper wasn't too difficult, I wouldn't be surprised if these were the grade boundaries.
The national average would have to be highly consistent... You need to consider that for every 5 people who get eighty, two may have gotten really low (20) and it brings the high eighties down massive in terms of averages... Consider that on a national scale and that's why they won't increase much

I can guarantee the A* would't be 175
9. Yeah dumb ****
10. For the trial and improvement question, I did all the working and narrowed it down between 3-7 & 3.8 but I accidentally put down the wrong one (3.7). How many marks would i get for this question out of the four?? Thanks.
11. I think I got like 32 marks on paper 1 and around 36-39 marks on paper 2. What's the chances I'll get a C?
12. Test paper haven't included the stem and leaf diagram.!
13. The video I mean. Apologies!
14. I think I got 126/200 Assuming this will be a B

18. so do you think 60 above will be a C or 57?
19. (Original post by Marshall Taylor)
You are suggesting that the grades will be 15 marks more for an A and B than last year?! I highly doubt it...
This exam was pisz easy compared to last!

so do you think 60 above will be a C or 57?
70 marks in total on a higher paper will get you a C whereas to get a C in the foundation paper you need to get 140 marks in total. So honestly, you have greater chance of passing on higher than foundation. Hope that answered your question.
