    70 Marks combined from both papers will get you a C in higher paper. 140 marks combined from both papers will get you a C in foundation.

    DO NOT WORRY!

    On average, 60 marks are needed on the higher tier for a C grade, however, in some years it has varied. To me, I considered this examination serious to be a bit easier than last years. However, last years boundaries were high and this was abnormal and this meant there was a high amount of students who had to resit. This year, i predict it will be 62 for a C as todays paper was a really weird paper, it seemed a bit too random.

    hope this helps
    Last years boundaries were not high, A* was 76 marks... Its usually in the 80s at least. The lower grades were around the same as normal because really only the end part of the paper was more challenging than normal

    To be honest for a C u basically need to get question 1-15 right cause they carry alot of marks and they're easy. If you're positive u got 30 and above on both papers then you have got a C.

    It's around 60 for a C.
    On both papers it's around 60, I hope you meant haha

    you don't even need half marks to get a C on either papers, I think a safe C would be around 65-70 though
