    Here are the answers: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2381568

    Not sure when they're releasing a PDF though. This site is likely to upload them: http://www.edexcelmathspapers.tk/

    I got around 123-129 marks, if I have added up my marks for both papers correctly.

    Will this be enough to get a B?

    I got about 185 combined. Anyone think that'll definitely be an A*. Really worried about the grade boundaries because the second paper was just pathetic

    Definitely. An A* will probably be around 160 marks.

    Exactly, most of the students in my school found paper 2 harder than paper 1, everyone has mixed views and both papers were difficult than the march 2013 ones. Therefore I would be surprised if the grade boundaries are above 165 for an A*. It should be 159-162

    Yup, you will be comfortably in the A boundary, reckon the boundary for an A will be 128-134 maximum.

    Yeah I got round there somewhere as well, yeah it is! The highest an A boundary has been was in march at 136. Our paper was much harder, they had two easy papers we had one hard and one easy so the boundary will be like 132 for an A for ours I think. Although, this said edexcel are consistent with grade boundaries for June exams (maths) they are always like in the 120's for an A and 160's for an A* and all the clever lot would've done early entry in like March hence the high boundary I think..

    Hopefully your right about the consistently and an A being in the 120s, since I think I got 127-134. I personally found paper 1 pleasant and paper 2 quite difficult.

    For instance, if you look at the June 2012 paper, it was 164 A* and 128 A and that paper was easy...
