    Definitely the hardest c1 paper I've seen, but looking back on it now, wasn't as bad as I first thought, questions 1,2,3,7,8 I think I got full marks on, maybe one or two dropped marks and in the other questions, I think I did enough to get some marks. Like I really screwed up the circles question, and I struggled with the negative parabola one (leave in the form m + or - root n.) interested to see others thoughts though as judging by twitter after the exam, people weren't too keen, but with time to reflect people may see it differently now.

    I found it alright but definitely much harder than any past C1 paper I had done, which was all since 2005. Most likely going to be lower boundaries based on reactions on twitter, not sure why there were so many complaints about the fractions though I didn't find any to be particularly hard

    I honestly feel this paper will probably be one of the hardest C1 papers AQA has ever made, and I feel a lot of people may have made silly mistake, so the grade boundaries will defiantly be lower. I wouldn't really describe it as a hard paper but tricky.

    I agree. Easy questions, difficult numbers

    This week I've done 4 of the most recent past papers, and at most I dropped 5 or 6 marks for silly little mistakes; overall they were fairly easy. But today was actually awful, I don't know what it was, but I couldn't get my head around the questions, and they were making some big numbers to deal with which was annoying if not anything else

    same here I really only messed up on the integration question, i got the line of P wrong and so i therefore could work out Q or the total area which sucks! But i got the ingetral correct and all the correct methods, how many marks do u think i'll loose??

    Hard to say! Grade boundaries change every year depending on the difficulty of the paper and overall performance. Maybe look at previous grade boundaries on the website and use that as a rough indicator?
