    @ Kieranw5 my teacher got a rough idea from aqa that 40 is an A and 50 was A* for specimen and so you may have not done as bad as you think. Also if anyone else interested I would say an A is 65-75% is an A and anything above is A*, but some theories are that an A can drop to 55% if really hard but go for 65-75% as that is a safe bet compared to 55%

    Hi, has anyone found the practise paper set 3 mark scheme cause i'm having massive trouble finding it but i have done the paper itself and want to see what i scored. It would be nice if someone posted all 4 of the mark schemes as well.

    tupac makaveli i think for a A you need a score of 48/80 because our whole class did a paper and i got 45/80 but i was 3 off an A. You also need 56 for an A* which is my target. Also in the previous exams i got pretty high A*s

    edu-sol has most of the papers and mark schemes back. The schemes for foundation sets 2, 3 and 4 are still missing.

    Does anyone have a list or anything of the things that we'll need to revise?

    All I'm thinking of is:

    Circle Thereoms (geometry)
    Vectors
    Enlargements and Transformations
    Loci and Construction
    Trigonometry
    Quadratic Graphs


    Does anyone for sure know any more? Cos I had such a poo teacher this year who never really told us
    Here's a list of everything you need with the grade it is. Sorry of I miss anything out.
    Simultaneous Equations (B)
    Solve Quadratics by graph and equation (B-A*)
    Trial and Improvement (C)
    Expand Double Brackets (C/A)
    Quadratic Graphs (C/B)
    Rearranging Formula (C-A*)
    Real Life Graphs (C-B)
    Linear Graphs (D/C)
    Expanding Simple Brackets (D/C)
    Factorising (D-A*)
    Solve Equations (D-B)
    Area of a Triangle using 1/2 absinC (A/A*)
    Vectors (A/A*)
    Trigonometric Ratios (B)
    Trigonometric Rules & rearranging them (A/A*)
    Loci (B/A)
    Constructions (B/A)
    Pythagoras (C)
    Transformations of Shapes and Graphs (C-A)
    Circle Theorems (C-A*)
    Angles - Exterior, Interior etc (D/C)
    Volume (D-A*)
    Area (D-A*)

    That's the list I got given, but I can think of some others...

    Reciprocal Graphs
    Cos and Sin Graphs
    Non-Linear Simultaneous Equations
    Arcs and Sectors

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    I need roughly 63 on this paper to get an A* overall as I have one A and one A*, but I'm not certain as it depends on UMS more than raw marks. However some people in my year only need to get 40 ish to have an A* overall. Per paper the A* boundary is around the 60 -65 mark.

    Hope that makes sense

    I don't know my total but I know in unit one I got 73 UMS which is an A* and I was one mark off an A* in unit two which is probably around 68 UMS. So roughly my total is 141. But I can't remember how much each paper is out of an the percentage weighting it counts - but I know unit 3 has the biggest weighting

    hmm 141 out of 180 would equate to 78% from the first 2 modules. An A* is 90% or more. This exam is worth 40% of the paper yeah so i guess if you've been told you need to aim for around 63 overall out of 80 marks then that would equate to a very high A* which is good!
