    I found mine OK! A little easier than the non calculator, I think. I'm pretty sure I've managed to get the C I need for Sixth Form. I'm sure I didn't get full marks or anything, but apparently I need 50% in each paper for a C, which I think I've managed to get. I'm so relieved they didn't go badly!
    i heard the grade boundaries are goin 2 be really low this year, like 60% for an a, thats what all the maths teachers are telling everyone in our year.
    I heard a c was 31% altogether.

    Yeah i heard that the boundaries are always really low, but then i dont know really. I did get the boundaries sent to me by CCEA but the file is 20 pages full of numbers, and it only has the lower end and i dont know what its out of in total. Does anyone know?

    I'm off this friday anyway so any strikes wont affect me anyway.

    It's not this years, its last years boundaries, they don't work out them for this year until after they mark them all. An A* was 225 last year, but it could go down i think.

    An A was 200. Do you think the boundaries will go down with this year's papers being harder?

    they would need to, i doubt there would be alot of people who got over 225 in this years paper.
