    Hi, I am currently in yr 10 and we are having a new style of gcse. I am going to be doing the 2017 maths gcse so its 3 papers one non calculator and the other two are calculator.
    I just wanted to know how to prepare for it since there are no past papers that will help with revision and do tutors help with revision, since mine has a level questions in it?
    Just do the past papers. I guess that's the only way... The government and exam boards keep changing it every year it's so fu**ing annyoing

    The Grade Boundaries shown below shows the marks you need to GUARANTEE that grade. These are 'safe grade boundaries' so to speak. Based on previous years, the upper grade Boundaries have historically been, across both papers, roughly:
    A* - 170
    A - 140
    B - 110
    C - 70

    Is it just me or is the grade boundary for the B grade too high?

    Keep in mind that these were the highest possible grades to guarantee you the grade and might not be anywhere near the actual boundaries that will be released in August x
