    He's taking about the old specification which is 55/100 and 80/100.NOT a new spec.

    Easy to panic in exams. What I did to stay focused was I waited till the exam was over and then ran around playing football with some of my mates. Exercise helps to release stress. Try it.

    hmm seems legit :dumbells:
    Think you're talking about a different exam board. This is Edexcel, and this was the last year where there was two papers out of 100. Now, it's 3 papers out of 80 each, from 2017 (first assessment).

    I feel like I could have done so much better on the non calculator paper but I just panicked and lost easy marks. I really pray that I get an A because I worked really really hard. Hopefully we will both get an A.
    I'm fine with a B tbh, I did work hard but considering I was on a D at the start of the year I'll be fine with a B lol! I really hope you get your A though, seems like you've worked hard for this... fingers crossed.

    the grade boundary for an A last year was 125 do you reckon we will see a rise of more than 5 marks from last year ?

    You know I'm really not sure. I did the 2015 back in December so I can't even remember what it was like (I know it was very hard though lol). The 2016 is also such a blur to me now... It will DEFO rise but I'm really not sure by how much, some say by a lot but I thought this year was quite hard too! I'd say between 130 -135 possibly more, but we'll know for sure the day before results day!

    If I got 55 marks in paper 1 and 80 marks in paper 2, What grade would that be?
    How do you revise for maths? And I assume you're in a grammar school right?

    Great, thanks! I heard somewhere that the grade boundaries for maths will be super high for A* though (as they were relatively easy papers, especially paper 2) around the 170 mark so I'm worried about that. Do you think I would just scrape the A* boundary at 168?

    The boundaries have never, from what I have seen, been above 82%, so I am definite that you've secured an A*

    Thats reassuring, thanks, but in June 2012 it was like 175 for an A* lol. How did you find the papers this year?
