    This was on the edexcel website 'Update on Maths A level

    Published: 14/06/2013Pearson's statement on the replacement of papers:

    "We have been in regular contact with all centres that have candidates sitting this GCE Maths paper and carefully monitored receipt of the replacement paper to all schools. However, there is always a small risk that a small number of candidates will accidentally sit the original paper, as has happened in this case.

    "At this stage, we believe that students at two UK and two overseas centres sat the original paper. We are continuing to monitor these numbers and would like to reassure students that all exam scripts will be marked, and we will carry out statistical analysis to ensure that all students are fairly rewarded for the performance on either paper." '

    01 is the main paper everyone sat (i.e. the horrendous c3 exam), 01R is the international paper

    I didn't sit CHEM4, so not sure about that.

    I'm quite happy with the CHEM 5 boundaries as they are about the same as the June 2012 paper and I felt our paper was easier. I hate the ISA boundaries, but i'm not surprised as they never change much from that.

    Stop being silly, C1 and M1 were sat before the replacements. Your delusional if you continue to insist that papers with 01R (including physics, chem and bio papers) are not international...
    HOWEVER

    For the C3 Maths paper 2 colleges in the UK sat the 01R paper, so it is the exception.

    Do you mean ISA or EMPA? In that case I did the ISA.

    If you mean whether I did the Transition metal one or the organic test one (i.e. unit 4 ISA or unit 5 ISA), I did both, but my unit 4 ISA was a lot better so that is the one my teachers submitted.

    How did you do in your ISA's?

    Yeah, I am! I really messed up my speaking because I get ridiculously nervous but the writing and reading paper was fine. Also, it helps that I've been living in Spain for 8 years now though lol
    The results come out at 6A.M. Thursday if you're talking about the grade boundaries they've already released that.

    I wasn't aware that they have released edexcel grade boundaries? And I thought the reading and writing was easy, but the listening I found fairly hard, and my speaking was ok but I also got quite nervous but I think I gave strong answers with lots of examples from articles and stuff
