    Hi guys
    I'm redoing my GCSE maths as I got D last summer and I'm therefor doing again this summer. In secondary we sat edexcel which u believed was much easier and now the college im at have changed the exam board to AQA which I'm struggling so much with!! If this was higher I would completely understand about doing higher as you only need to answer less questions but I sat a AQA paper and didn't even get anywhere near a D! My college won't let me change to foundation and I'm really worried as I want to go to university and I don't want this to ruin my chance? Is it not possible if I answer all the AQA foundation questions that I can get a C?

    Firstly, while it is certainly very useful, you do not necessarily need to pass maths with any particular grade to study at university. It will depend on what you want to study and where.

    Secondly, you can find mark schemes and grade boundaries online to see how well you need to do for each grade. You do not have to answer very much correctly on a H paper to get a C, but beyond that I am not an expert. Take a look here for the grade boundaries from the last cycle: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...-JUNE-2015.PDF
