    I got an A also, I wasn't very convinced when I saw how high the boundary was, I was led to believe that the boundaries for an A would be much lower, somewhere between 124 -128, also many people in my school found the paper hard and apparently other people found it hard too, I predicted I'd get about 147 marks , I got exactly that, so actually I got the A by a fair amount, anyways how many marks did you get ?

    People from my school missed out on grade boundaries by a mark or two.
    Yea same I thought the grade boundaries are going to be low to get an A. But, I thought there's not chance of me getting an 'A', as I predicted that I could only get between 120-130, but I was wrong I got 141 but, to be honest I really don't care about the marks I just wanted an A which I've got!

    I think it's going to be hard, but the grade boundaries are definitely going to be low :L

    because for the March exam there were really high and majority of people I know found the exam paper easy/okay, but not hard that's why the boundaries were high, but watch the edexcel wont make the June exam easy or the boundaries low.

    They wont be low, micheal Gove (education minister) said that GCSE's are "To easy", and boundaries have been raised by 9%. This also explains why science boundaries were also so damn high

    I'm more than sure the boundaries will be similar, even if the paper will be harder

    cmon... dont give up... you name is "MOTIVATED"¬!!!!!
    I GOT AN A*!! I HAVE NO IDEA HOW. It doesn't feel real! How do you get to see the raw marks? Does the school have to request them? I think I'm dropping maths now as I don't think I'll be able to leap to A-level, it's took me four tries!

    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
    Oh I didn't know that the november paper was so awful. I done the AQA in November and that was very nasty for me, more so because I didn't revise much for that one though. I must admit the March edexcel exam was the most confident I've felt for a maths exam and I got an A* weee

    Hi..
    i honestly think it's gonna be much harder than the march one. Because I remember the first 1Ma0 exam was in June 2012 I didn't do that exam but we did it as a past paper and to be fair it wasn't that hard at all!! Then I did the November 2012 exam and it was really hard. So I think it'll be harder, plus if they do 2 easy exams in a row that just shows that the exams are getting easier...that's what I think anyways...

    I got my B in the march exam and I'm going to aim for the A/A* in June and to revise I just used a maths watch CD the school supplied which explains every topic on the syllabus.
