The grade boundaries are different for every exam and are worked out after the papers are marked and analysed.
Those shown above are a decent estimation of roughly what they are likely to be.

Won't be able to know until much later on in the year but you can have a look at previous grade boundaries to see where the rough boundary is. The most recent grade boundary were:
A*: 164 - 200,
A: 133 - 163,
B: 95 - 132,
C: 57 - 94,
D: 28 - 56,
E: 13 - 27,
U: 0 - 12

All the grade boundaries can be found on the Edexcel website.

Topics like :
- Factor and Primes
-Indices
-Ratio
-standard form
-Factorising
-Expanding brackets
-Translation,reflection,rotation,Enlargement

These topic do come up on the non cal higher tier as well as other subject that would be easy to solve without using calculator ....
Hope this helps and good luck with the exam

Grade boundaries change every year so I don't really know, better chance of passing if it is low ....


Do you know any websites that do past papers for higher tier ?

You shouldn't be aiming for a C. You should aim for an A*. If you get a C for GCSE Higher math, you will get a big shock come A levels. I got an A* for IGCSE Higher level math and I an having a bit of a struggle with Scottish Higher level math(AS Level equivalent).

Maths is hard and I do not think that you are in the position of telling people what they should be aiming for. A 'C' is still a pass and that is all that counts. You do not need to pick maths for A levels it is not always compulsory. Everyone knows that an IGCSE has lower grade boundaries compared to edexcel. Quite frankly, nobody cares what you achieved in maths so stop blowing your own horn!
