    I sat my maths paper today (non-calculator), and found it really hard. We do modular maths, and I have already completed 2 exams (statistics and number) and 2 pieces of coursework. I also do higher tier.
    So far, for 50% of my mark, I have got 41% which = A grade.

    Today, I think I did really bad and got about a C grade, what grade would I have to get on the calculator paper next week to get an A grade overall, or wouldn't I be able to do this anymore?

    Is it always 80% to get an A grade?

    Thanks

    Nope, if they're as hard as the ones I sat last year, they'll be much lower than 80% I think.

    Last year for AQA Maths, 16% overall was required for a C, 33% for a B and 50% for an A. I am not sure about the grade boundaries for the A* but i recon that all the grade boundaries will be lower this year because the paper was so awful! Good luck for next weeks exam!!

    16% for a C? How the hell are you supposed to fail that? That paper must have been confused with an advanced maths A-level paper.

    With edexcel a grade c on higher always has a lower boundry in the 16 to 25% range.

    Nah for AQA it was 21% for a C, 38% for a B, and 56% for an A.

    This increased by a little for the calculator paper.
