    But TBH that paper was easy, I barely realised I'd completed it and got nearly full marks in doing so.

    I agree that it was not much of a difficult paper at all unlike the 2013 and 2015 paper

    Has anyone done Further/Additional Maths?

    I did my GCSE maths this year (year 10) and got an A* so I will be doing Further & Additional Maths next year.

    But yeah, does anyone know what those exams are like in comparison to regular GCSE?

    Thanks!

    Sorry but these corporate clowns are having a laugh. I haven't done maths since year 1 to be told I'm a D-grade student by 2 marks in a high boundary situation. If this remark keeps my grade as a D I'm gonna cry.

    What is a GCSE statement?
    No I was only given the subject name and the grade, but the column for sums grade, mark 1 and mark 2 were blank as well as no raw mark.

    idk if you want to go in to medicine and require that extra * then go for it but for me I cba looool I'm sure it was checked subjects like maths its really rare that you'll get that extra mark whereas subjects like English it's more common but my teacher has advised me to remark I just feel like a year time no one will care if I got the * as long as I've passed its all good ugh idk so close man 😭

    this how it's laid out well how the AQA candidate statement is it has subjects name on the side, ocr is more clear and the edexcel statement is a little confusing but includes the ums and raw marks if you'd like me to send you another pap with a edexcel board I don't mind

    The calc paper was really easy so I dont think this is that unreasonable really... Dont they create grade boundaries so that only a certain amount of people get a certain grade each year?

    Well, the percentages change each year, though never by some gargantuan amount. I do not know what the process is...it seems rather arbitrary

    Yeah, on my Edexcel maths one, I only have the subject award A*, but no mms mark or raw mark. If you don't mind, could you send one from the edexcel board. Thank you

    I got an A and only 7 marks away from an A* which I am so happy with! I am not good in exams so while I will get A*s in class, I got Bs in both of my mocks. I am so so happy that I got such a high A!
