    It's never been above 167 and, considering last year was 155, i am pretty certain they won't move it up to 170!! I heard quite a lot of bad things about these papers

    Some people just said the wording of some questions, and that 6 marker at the end, were a bit cheeky

    Well, I looked on June 2012 exam paper, way easy than our papers because it got questions such as cumulative frequency but today maths paper, it's different because it's got mean, arc perimeter etc.

    In overall marks in June 2012, 168 marks to get A* because it's got obvious questions that you are expecting to be asked.

    We don't know how many marks in overall to get A* in maths GCSE but I can say that it's got mixture of hard and easy questions like surds question in non calculator or so many people got the metal bars wrong ( including me).
    I am 100% sure it won't be higher than 165 marks.
    I think it should be at 155 to 160 marks to get A*.

    Who's agree with me?!!!

    Thats what i thought, then I spoke to others and looked on twitter and there's a whole load of commotion about how hard it was ?? I know for sure a lot of the less confident students were intimidated by the last five questions and many didn't attempt the last one but surely a large amount of people found it easy or at least ok, I was expecting worse after a couple of the questions in last years paper...
    The majority of people actually found it hard. 75% of the "confident" A/A* students I know found it hard.
