    But 71/75 for FP3 must be disheartening to many hopeful mathematicians.
    Edexcel need to sort their **** out. Their resources are too good, everyone reks the exam papers. They need to start having crap textbooks like AQA lol. Or just do super hard papers like they have done sometimes

    though tbh if it'd been this year's FP3 paper I'd sat I'd probably have got 75/75, 100 UMS cos it was piss. Whereas last year, grade boundaries hit the floor, crazy low, but I got like 62/75 which was less. So the terror of high boundaries may be misplaced

    Watch it rise to 73/75 next year. Then students will take it to Twitter or something like that one year about Hannah and her sweets problem, in GCSE Maths exam.

    Dunno about Edexcel. I did WJEC and some were high, some were low. I remember at GCSE in some papers you needed less than half raw marks for full UMS lmao

    Thing is they get more **** when the paper is hard, so they've more incentive to keep on doing piss easy papers. Then the backlash at high boundaries isn't nearly as bad as the backlash at a hard paper; at least I've never seen it be as bad.
