Higher tier, edexcel:

80% + = A*
60% + = A
40% + = B
20% + = C
I am sure those are wrong.
what would a d, e, or f be?

50% in my mock maths in a mock *is* good, especailly at higher level.

Don't remeber what I got, had a B overall at GCSE

At AS-level I got 10% in Pure 1 & 22% in Stats 1.... not bad huh!

I think I ought to really say that anyone wanting to do A-Level who is currently on target for a B/C grade GCSE better think again (and I don't mean this in an arrogant way at all).

GCSE Maths higher tier is not particularly challenging compared to A-Level, the step is is huge, and only really worth doing if you have a science-based degree in mind. You will have to work very hard at A-Level if you're struggling with GCSE higher tier, and the very simplest stuff at A-Level is the more difficult material at GCSE. At my school, for instance (excluding f. mathmaticians, of which I am one) in AS-Maths, noone achieved better than a C, people who had achieved A/A* at GCSE dropped to U-D grades, including some people who got A/B grades in their other subjects.

Above all, don't be downheartened by mock results, there's plenty of time to improve and hopefully it'll give you incentive to work a bit harder.

some people have it and some don't
some people can apply maths and see past a question and some can't
