    Hi, now I'm sure many of you agree that that Maths test was extremely difficult (I'm referring to AQA GCSE Maths Spec A, non modular)... I'm doing the Intermediate tier and really need a B. Only problem is I think I did particularly badly on Paper 1... around 55 of 100 marks? But on Paper 2 I tend to do a lot better (usually around 70). Taking into account lowering boundaries and the fact my coursework had full marks... do you think it would still be possible for me to get a B?

    Should be fine. They always drop the boundery's if the exam is diff and everyone found it so. AQA are normally my fav but with GCSE Maths they suck!

    I don't know how much help this is, but I know that for the higher paper, you roughly have to get 67%-76% for an A, so if you got around 120 all together, and you're doing intermediate paper, that makes about 60%, which would be a B, right? And coursework, I heard, can be the difference between a grade. Just look forward to your next exam, you'll be fine if you don't put yourself under pressure.
