    Well, the higher Edexcel exam was in a slightly different style to the ones previously. I do not think it caught many people out as many people were positive about it. To be honest, if you're in Y11, you can retake it next year at college. I'm confident I got an A at least but some questions caught me out. Tbh I flunked GCSE math and have only realised how bad at maths I was. Sorry- I do not know the grade boundary- It will not change your mark- hard work and effort/ determination produce good marks.

    Yeah true but I need a c for a course im doing aha. I thought it was hard purely cause they put to many long questions in where you can make plenty of mistakes :/ also it was different to what I had been taught really :/

    Knowing how to do most of the maths easily is a good idea. Revision books, mymaths, mathswatchevle are good resources. Another good idea is to do past papers (when fully revised) and see where you went wrong and do all the topics you're unsure of. Also note any strange topics not in the revision book (there are some) and learn how to do them easily.

    Thanks for the reply, and I wouldn't think it would be that high for a C the highest it has been is 63 in the retake paper, but that was super easy this exam was quite hard so I thought it would be in the 50 range :/

    35% to pass GCSE Maths? Wow. No wonder so many people are terrible at maths. I didn't realise standards were so low for GCSE Maths

    Next time please don't start three identical threads. I have better things to do than clean up your poop.
