# UNOFFICIAL MARKSCHEME Edexcel Maths Calculator paper 09/06/2016 Watch

I'm not sure about that, I was looking at some past paper grade boundaries and the majority seem to be around 165 for an A*.

If I get unlucky and get 158 it could very well only be an A.
Are you sure? I know the A boundary is usually between 125-135 and thought A* was usually between 155-165

2. Why are my friends saying that the grade boundary for an A will be in the 150-60 region ? This is pissing me off. Tsr is giving hope to live and my friends are making me suicidal.

It's been above 165 a lot, though:

155 for A* in June 2015
167 for A* in November 2015
164 for A* in June 2014
166 for A* in November 2014
165 for A* in June 2013
169 for A* in November 2013

A lot of people seemed to find the non-calculator fairly challenging so that might lower the boundaries, although lots felt the calc paper was quite easy too.

2 for the stem bit, 1 for the probabliity

here's what the boundaries have been before
9. This is really useful however I can't remember how many marks each question was worth and I don't have a copy of the exam paper. Could you please include the marks for each question? Thank you.
10. grade boundary predictions? I thaught it was better than last years but harder than the others
11. Hey guys I got 211/200, do you think that's gonna be enough for a B!?

Will 140 be the highest it can be or is it going to be 140 ? Thanks. I just hope I get an A. I asked my friend and he said no. Why the **** can I not get a straight answer ?

Yh because the lowest an A* has ever been is 155 so 140 has to be the highest for an A. It ranges from 128 to 140 so hopefully its between 130 and 140 this year. I really want to get an average of 65-70 on both papers so I can get an A.

For question 14, how did you get 3 bars?
My answer was something like 2.91 (rough guess of what I put) bars but because they're solid objects and the fact that you can't get 0.91 of a bar (I can't word my reasoning right at all, sorry if it makes no sense), I rounded it DOWN right to 2.
At least I'll get the marks for working out.
You have the right understanding but wrong numbers. It was about 3.4 I don't remember the exact number then you write 3 bars

17. For the question with the triangle inside of a triangle where you had to find X how did you work it out??

Average grade boundary is 166, not taking into account June 2015

its was the one where you had top work out x for the permiter for the recentangle
x+4 X x i think x= 5 i dont acuatly know if thats right
couldnt have been 5 if you substituted 5 for x it didnt add up to 45 it was definitely 9.25
