    Has anyone got the grade boundaries for this paper?

    It was quite hard and got 66/75. Need to know what the grade boundary for an A was so I can work out whether it'd be over 87 UMS which is what I'd need for an A*.

    If this helps, its the June 08 examiner report, grade boundaries are at the 3rd to last page

    how would you convert raw marks to UMS? is there a multiplier or is it just by inspection?

    Thanks. I'd give you another positive rating but it says 'Please rate some other members before rating this member again,' so i'll go and rate other members and then give you a thumbs up. Btw, where do you get these examiner reports from?

    most are available on the edexcel website i think, if not i pick them up from various sites like

    http://www.edexcel.com/quals/gce/gce...s/default.aspx
    http://www.mystudytable.com
    http://mathsjoint.webs.com/


    The problem is that june 2010 ones are not released to the public till JAn 2010 but they are interesting to read
