I was just wondering what GCSE Grades are all of you predicted at Maths?
Well, here is mine, GCSE Mathematics A (Linear) - Edexcel

Predicted A* by year 11, Current Grade in year 10 B/A.
Grade 1 month ago in past papers: Borderline B/Average B's

Grade now: Low A's/Average A's
High A's if paper is really easy - Got a very high A in March 2013 paper.

Well, I'd like to know what are your predicted and current grades for GCSE Maths and if any of you are taking gcse maths early in year 10, what is your predicted grade of gcse maths in year 10, mine is A/A* depends on how well I do in the mocks.

I'm in year 11 now but I took my GCSE maths a year early (in year 10) and got an A, but then retook it in November to try and get an A* as I was only 3 marks off now I'm doing further maths, and I'm predicted an A in that, however in the mock last month I got an A*!

I was predicted an A* and got a C. To be fair I spent 20 minutes in the exam, hadn't been in school for that academic year and took it early but still - pretty egregious.

TSR rules state a minimum of grade A* is required at GCSE Mathematics or you are liable to be banned


P.S:Reported.

I think I'm doing the same course as you Edexcel - Linear Maths but I'm not sure if It's B or A. Currently, I'm predicted an A, however my teacher and my former teacher in yr 9 believes that I'll get an A*. But personally, I'm just aiming for a B.

Well, I guess that's amazing dude. If you are doing Edexcel Linear Maths, then it will definitely be GCSE Edexcel Mathematics A (Linear). Therefore, you are probably doing the same exam board as me. Well, if your teacher believes you are going to get an A* by year 11, you should be aiming for A*. Now, GCSE's are much more important than they used to be. Furthermore, I'm assuming as your predicted an A* in GCSE Maths, it is probably your strongest GCSE, which means you should definitely try to get A* in that, and probably strong grades such as A's and B's in the other core subjects, such as the sciences and english literature/language, if not then try getting a C/B. Then, get high grades in the other easy GCSEs such as RE and ones you took, that's what I am aiming for .

At the end of year 10 I was on a D and predicted a C/B, yet in my GCSE's I got a high A grade! I'm now in year 12 and studying Economics AS!

With Maths, all it takes is hard work at you will get a high grade, it's all about understanding. And I fully agree with the point made earlier about the importance of GCSE's, especially Maths - an A grade or better opens SOOO many doors in terms of university courses, trust me..

Yeah basically plus additional is written more like a C1 paper, with much longer questions compared to the more GCSE style of further maths.
