    Edexcel, to be honest, is easier than AQA. The AQA Modular Maths papers were solid.

    that's way too high, i was thinking more 168 max
    No it's not trust me.

    A* - 165

    A - 135
    B - 115
    C - 70

    ***These grades are only estimates and are worst-case scenario grade boundaries for EDEXCEL maths GCSE

    A grade is accurate but A* has been way higher than that in edexcel.

    The highest it's been is 176 so it won't go higher than that but i have reason to believe it'll be higher than 170

    I didn't find it that bad tbh. We had the easiest 6 marker in history and even though I got the independent company question wrong, it was common knowledge. Alcohol and drugs did come up in the Drugs topic so they can question it, and even though drunk teenagers may be offensive it wasn't a bad question. I think Biology was pretty reasonable this year.

    The number of GCSEs passed will be in a set of brackets "(x)" and the number of subjects taken will be next to it. For example, "10 (9)."

    that was old spec so isn't relevant
    the highest i've seen it on the current spec is 169, and i can't see it going higher than that, calculator seemed easy enough but non calculator had a few nonstandard questions towards the end

    (do take this with a pinch of salt bc i did my maths gcse last year and am going off opinions of friends as well as my own after seeing the papers)

    I think 176 was the old specification. With the new specification the highest grade was 165 and tbf that paper was super easy.

    My teacher said it's going to be around 170 but we could get lucky. It was only so low last year because their papers were worse. Ours weren't bad at all, only a couple of harder questions in non calculator.

    Aha that's what I thought after the exam but have you seen the 2013 or 2014 paper? Forgot which one it was. I did it for 'fun' lol and managed to get 100/100 in the non calc and 98/100 in the calc in just 50 mins. It was super easy compared to our exam and the GB was 165 for an A*.
    So worried because I feel like I either scraped an A* or I'm a mark or two off😭
