    I seen the incorrect boundaries this morning and I had so much hope, but now they seem really high :'( I promised my maths teacher (who has now left) to get an A* for him, and well that's very unlikely. I'm not going to get an A* in the summer either because I have so many other exams to revise for.

    Any idea why they are so high this time?

    if you did the november paper you would understand; the nov calculator paper was by far the hardest exam I've ever done in my life, so low grade boundaries were expected and they were very low. the march non-cal was very easy and the calc was quite easy - way easier than the november. because the november was so hard, everyone revised more because they were scared the march would be as hard as the nov, but it was way easier. So, easier exam and more revision = higher marks = higher grade boundaries

    You're really telling me it was 11marks harder to get an A* harder because I doubt that. Grade boundaries don't fluctuate that much between two exam periods, it's ridiculous

    of course it is, but a high rise from nov was expected - compare the two papers and you'll understand

    grade boundaries
    Hi,
    I'm hoping to resit my GCSE maths (higher paper). I just want to know, is Edexcel relatively than other exam boards. Also is there any Edexcel maths exams available in in the summer?
    If you could answer any those questions, I would be grateful, don't worry if you can't.
    Thanks

    Edexcel is pretty popular for maths so there are lots of resources you can use to revise, which is always good. And yes there are and it's in early June - 2 papers, each 1 hour and 45 minutes.

    Thank you for replying!
    So the exams in June will consist of two papers?
    Do you know where I can find some good resources to revise?
    Also, I struggling to find the past exam papers on edexcel, do you know where I can find them?
    Thanks

    Yes two papers, one with no calculator and with a calculator. Revision techniques are down to preference, some people like to read and answer whereas others prefer using CD's such as MathsWatch - which is good. And for past papers: http://www.bland.in/GCSE%20Maths/

    hi mr m, did you find he grade boundaries for the foundation tier quite high? Considering the difficulty of the first paper. I got 85 on the second one but only 55 on the first one, what would you recommend to do? Thanks.

    what year are you in? the cgp guide is helpful as well as pearson revision guides. I also used mathswatch and examsolutions
    I'm in year 13, resiting it because my course at uni requires a B in GCSE maths. I have a GCP guide, just to confirm, its the white book, Edexcel Modular?
    Do you have to pay for an account for mathswatch and examssolutions?

    Are you doing modular? I did Linear, because theres only 2 exams, calculator and non calculator which i find easier. I used the red cgp linear higher revision guide. cant find it on amazon though

    I used these revision guides: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Revise-Edexc...d_bxgy_b_img_y

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Revise-Edexc...d_bxgy_b_img_y

    For mathswatch you have to pay for it, but my friend had it downloaded on her memory stick so she sent it to me. and examsolutions is a website but you dont have to pay for it. http://www.examsolutions.net/
    I'm actually doing the linear exams, btw do you know dates of the linear exams in june? I thought this book I have would also cover it, but I guess not. I will probably go waterstones tomorrow to get the right books.
