    Does anyone have a rough idea of what the higher tier maths edexcel grade boundaries will be. I know they are not released, but does anyone have a good reason and explanation why they will be the 2016 edexcel maths grade boundaries.

    A* - 80%
    A - 60-65%
    B - 47%

    Hope this helps a little

    They are not released because they don't exist yet.
    After all of this years papers are marked, the examiners will analyse all of the marking data and decide what they should be.
    They will vary depending on how hard the exams turn out to be.
    The guesses above are as good as any.

    It should be lower as a lot of students throughout the country struggled with last years paper and my maths teacher told our class that the boundaries vary on how well the country did the previous year so hopefully we should have lower grade boundaries this year!

    I think they'll be similar to June 2014's boundaries, last year they were a bit weird bc some of the questions confused students, but they will have learnt from their mistakes and go back to what worked.

    June 2014 Edexcel Mathematics A Higher boundaries
    A* A B C D U
    200 164 133 95 57 28 13 0


    However, saying this the boundaries may be even higher. MAYBE. It's the second last year of the spec I think, so maybe everyone will do well and the boundaries will be even higher. It's all been rinsed if you get me, the spec's been rinsed. AIM HIGH FAM

    2015 was 155/125/95/65

    I'd be surprised if 2016 is lower than 2015 but really none of us have any idea.

    It depends on the year. Last year was 125 because they were hard papers. And 2013 was 139 because it was much easier.

    None of us know what it will be this year.

    That's not how it works. The boundaries are set based on the performance of candidates in that year's paper.
