    Hey,

    I found the first paper manageable, the second I genuinely thought was the hardest paper out of all of the past ones.

    How did you find it?

    I found the same - second paper was harder. I don't mind what mark I get as long as its enough for a C. I looked at the grade boundaries for the past 4 papers and it was 78-83 marks out of 180 for a C so that's under half...we shall see!!! Are we allowed to talk specifics yet as I know other countries often have the exams after/before others?

    Yes edexcel certificate is just a state school approved igcse. It's the same exam
    but here is the igcse link, it's the same anyway.

    Just got my results and I received an A - so happy with this as I was convinced I would get a D and I only needed a C! Good luck everyone else (will repeat this on the other IGCSE Biology post) x
