    You're on the same as me. A good idea for when you want to know stuff like this for any subject is to look up the exam board's pre-released grade boundary PDF for the previous year:

    http://www.edexcel.com/iwantto/Documents/GCSE%20composite%201306%20v2.pdf

    Judging by this, you need exactly 143/200 marks for a C which breaks down to 71.2 marks a paper so you need 71 to 71 marks for a grade C, on each paper. However, that's subject to change each year but it should be between 70 and 80 as said previously!

    Good luck with your GCSE results, xjay1234!

    My exam is next Thursday, the 4th of June, are you sitting it then? I'm doing non calculator paper, I recommend a disc called 'maths watch' it's really good that's what I'm revising from at the moment it has every topic that may appear on your paper and gives you tutorials on how to do it and also gives you practice questions and worksheets. Good luck in your exam!

    added together - so over all you need to get 145 marks or more for a C

    No-one knows (even the Chief Examiner). Grade boundaries are decided after all of the papers have been marked.
