I sat 12 exams for Edexcel A-Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics this year, and using unofficial mark schemes and talking to other students, these are my grades:

fp1: 75
fp2: 66
fp3: 64
s3: 72
s4: 72
s2: 63
m1: 67
c3: 66
c4: 70
s1: 59
c2: 71
c1: 59

What grades do these look like to you? I think it averages out to AA, but I'm not sure.

What do you guys think?

Could be A*A* if grade boundaries permit.

Only looking to get AA, really. That's what I need to go for the Comp Sci and Maths Joint Honours at RHC

I've look at all your raw marks and averages them out for each subject.

Further maths:
Average percentage over A level: 91.55% = A grade
Average A2 units: 89.77% = not A* grade

Maths:
Average percentage over A level: 87.10% = A grade
Average A2 units (core 3 and core 4): 90.65% = A* grade

These are just based on your RAW marks percentages, so this information is assuming every single one of your modules have grade boundaries were the percentage of UMS = the percentage of RAW marks. obviously this won't happen so this is just an estimate.

So just cross your fingers and hope for low grade boundaries to get both your A*'s, but you're definitely looking at 2 A's and you could potentially get A*'s.

I didn't get a mark scheme for S3. I just asked people on TSR on the day, and I apparently got all the right answers. Same for S4.

I think that I got 75/75 on one of S3 or S4 as well, but I did not want to be overly optimistic.

That is a lot of maths in one year! :eek:

I'd say you've got 2 A*s - and definitely 2 As!

oh i see - shame there wasn't an unofficial though!

I think i've got around 67/68 on that s3 paper... do you think that would be enough for 90ums?

Definitely don't average raw marks. Having seen previous grade boundaries, he may well get 2 A*s, especially as FP3 and FP2 were trickier than usual.

Yeah sorry, I know it's not the most accurate thing ever but I was just going by the infromation he gave. I did mention that it won't be accurate in the post. But yeah probably will get A*s but I was just providing information about his raw marks so far.
