the non calc and calc were fairly easy compared to previous maths edexel examS so the grade boundaries will be v high ,roughly:
A*-170/200
A-150-169
B-115-149
C-95-114
your predictions are miles off an A* is roughly 160 an A grade wont be any higher than 135 the exams this years were not that easy

Sorry mate you got the depreciation one wrong
Yeah I figured that out. Thanks though!
6. So give or take I got around 145 for both papers combined using the unofficial mark scheme. Will I get a bloody A ? I'm actually crying now. People have said the grade boundary for an A will be at 155-60.

7. Q. 14 I believe its not 3. i think it ends up as 5.6.... And you round down as 5 since you cant have 0.66 bars. I would like to see the question again please if anyone possibly can.
8. I think I got 30.1 degrees for the last question ?did anyone else , was I just being reatrded

you don't need to get angry over a maths exam
12. Did anyone do foundation????
that brick question where it asked for 1 length of the square brick was tough. And the 145% of the ski guys height as well, didnt know how to do that at all. And don't even get me started on the last question that was hardddd haha
13. for the 9/20 question did you have out 0.45?? because i didn't and now i feel stupid
14. What would 97/200 be? I really need a b and I was sick on the day of the non calculator paper and didn't do as well as I could of

you dont need to insult people over a maths exam
18. for (Q19) i got 10.89 and i thought you cant round up people so i put 10, was it definitely 11
19. got 158 - 168 i think which is definitely an A so I am happy. if the grade boundaries and examiners are generous I might even get an A*

shame i screwed up on the last question though, had to rush it in 10 minutes and it took me 7 mins just to realise what to do thanks to a brain fart.
