    If I base my predicted score on last years grade boundaries, do you think it will be accurate?
    no idea what you think...

    I will revise mine when I see the paper

    REVISED S2 ESTIMATED GRADE BOUNDARIES

    100UMS ...74-75
    90UMS..... 70-71
    80UMS..... 66-67
    70UMS..... 58-59


    These boundaries are based entirely on the poll/some of your discussions and having seen the paper

    I revised for the exam quite well. However, I think if you really knew your stuff, eg did all exercises in the book - it would be fairly easy to do well in this paper. Although the majority of candidates wouldn't have done this, I expect them to be low - maybe last years would be a good estimate I guess.

    maybe you are right

    A lot of people had already got their A or A* whatever they were aiming for, other concentrated on STEP.
    Being the last exam allows tactical decisions.

    (S2 was similar/12 out of my 14 students on it needed around 60% so it will be a "non trier")

    For exam structure
    I would stick to the Pearson series which are written by and for EDEXCEL/PEARSON

    For additional/extension I would get the Bostock and Chandler original

    these are my estimates





    REVISED BOUNDARIES AFTER DOING SOLUTIONS TO THESE PAPERS


    these are my C3 EDEXCEL estimates

    69-70 …. 100UMS
    64-65 …. 90 UMS
    57-58 …. 80 UMS
    51-52 .… 70 UMS

    these are my C4 EDEXCEL estimates

    71-72.........100UMS
    65-66.........90UMS
    59-60.........80UMS
    52-54.........70 UMS

    incidentally to blow my own trumpet ...
    look at Q8 of this years C4 paper
    look at Q8 of C4, IYGB, paper N

    then look at Q10 of the C34, IAL June 2015
    then look at Q8 of IYGB paper V

    52 days to results ...

    Hi TeeEm,

    Want to ask some quick question for S2:

    For question 5d,
    how many marks will I lose if I have used binomial after poission distribution, but then I got the other way around, what is the max mark I will lose?

    For question 7,
    I got Median 10,20,50 but got Median 10 (step correct answer wrong), Median 50 (both correct) , how many marks will I lost ?

    Thanks so much
