    I took the higher tier maths gcse in march 2013 and I just saw the grade boundaries which have gone up considerably . I don't think I did that well in my exam and I made quite a few silly mistakes so I'm hoping for an A but I'll likely get a B. I'm so scared for the results tomorrow, my parents will kill me if I get anything less than an A and I was predicted to get an A*. How well does everyone else think they did?

    The grade boundaries are like 10 percents higher than the November exam, apparently everyone found the exam really easy but I thought it was hard I need 136 marks for an A but I reckon I got less, hopefully we'll both get the grade we want

    Your teacher has this information. It isn't published anyway where I can link to it.

    Again, you need to ask your own teacher as it is password protected.

    The November grade boundaries for the past 3 years have always been lower than the march/June ones for some weird reason - don't know whether they make the papers hard/semi-hard purposefully on November rounds.

    Boundaries depend on the calibre of the cohort sitting the exams. The cohorts are not the same as different times of the year.

    TO EVERYONE RECEIVING THEIR MATHS RESULTS TOMORROW:

    REMEMBER:

    Have faith and believe that you have already succeeded as the Bible says 'Put your faith in no man, but in the Lord'.

    In other words, believe in God that you have got that grade and for that it was for his grace and your strong faith!!

    So JUST BELIEVE!
    PEACE AND LOVE!!
