    How did you go about working out the UMS, rough estimate? How can I find the 100UMS boundary for Edexcel maths? Thanks
    Download the AQA spreadsheet (works for all exam boards) and enter the boundaries:

    Urmm yeaa quite reflect but still AS boundary for an A is high 56/80 although it wasnt hard and 52/80, which is much better. Biology AS exam was just a nightmare probably the worst exam that could have been created. Bye medicine in UK, hello Europe however i'm still doing AS do i have to give up if i have ABCC or smth like that or it depends what teaachers predict me?
    You dont know that yet, so many people right now are just panicking, calm down unless you have your paper/know how many marks you have got in the exam you do not know what your going to get. Keep calm, only a day to go!

    No you dont have to give up, get AAA predictions and you will be fine.

    I'm genuinely curious what the examiner's report would say.

    "They all f*cked up Q1-9. The end."
    LOL I bet the usual "Only a minority of candidates were unable to finish the paper in time" bs is incoming
    When it should be more like "Only the most able candidates were able to complete Q1 onwards"

    Do you think theres a chance that they've made a mistake in the chemistry grade boundaries?
    I wish lol

    God these Edexcel grade boundaries haven't helped my faith in getting an A* in further maths. I took S2 last year and got 88 UMS, so I need 91 average in FP2 and FP3 to get an A*.

    I think I got 69/75 in FP2 (this could be 70 it depends on whether the first question gives a mark for identify the incorrect region given the choice of two) , where 68 is the boundary so that should be 91 or 92 UMS. Can someone please please tell me which as it's important.

    Then in FP3, I think I lost 4 marks which would be on the 71/75 boundary, but some of those are shakey so 72 is possible, as is 70.

    The only reason i think they have dropped in our course because we had long answer question with 20 marker at the end ... i dont know how your was like
    Well BUSS3's first question, which is usually a free 10 marks "fill in the formula" question, was a paragraph-based one that hadn't appeared for years. I think it might drop a bit based on that and the second question not having that much to write about. I get an extra 4 Raw Marks due to extenuating circumstances so hopefully I should be able to mitigate the blow an increased boundary might have.

    No problem
    And hm I found it more interesting than British politics (I did American at A2) but I did find it more difficult yeah. And these grade boundaries have made me lose a bit of hope 😂 but I guess we won't find out till tomorrow
    Good luck for tomorrow!
