    What do you think the grade boundaries will be for the OCR c1 paper today. I know an A will be around 50 (because most people say it was quite hard) but what about the other grades?.

    I think i got about 35 marks max and worried it wont even be an E lol

    My guess is at about 60 - 62, since the paper wasn't that bad

    Wasn't that bad? You must have sat the exam in an alternative universe...

    Fairly easy paper, so frustrating how they target the re-sitters instead of actually testing our brains. My mate's uncle's dog's previous owner, who's a part time OCR examiner (when he's not repping the underground grime scene) said the grade boundaries will be really high as a result.

    Definitely the hardest one. Before this the hardest C1 had 56 something for an A. Considering this was much harder, grade boundary could be lower.

    Yeah I got the gist that they wanted to make sure that people who retook c1 because it's the easiest, had a challenge. Not really fair for the first time people honestly. Lowest recent c1 grade boundary was 54 in the past 5 years so hopefully it's slightly lower (I got between 52-56).

    I hope it is around 54. You would get around 77-83 UMS if it was 54. In hind sight the paper wasn't too difficult the style of questions was different though.

    I really hope A is 50 marks! i struggled with the last 2 questions, like this has never happened in any of the past papers as most people manage 90%.

    I did sixteen past papers over the course of the last couple of months and that, by far, was the hardest exam. The most annoying thing is that I now know how to work out the last question and it keep bugging me that I hardly attempted it now.Basically everyone I've talked to has said that it's the hardest one they've sat. My guess would be that the A grade would be ~60, maybe lower but probably not higher

    No and no. Those resitting sit the exact same exams as the AS students. MEI is just another maths a-level run by OCR. My old school's college does MEI but the college I'm at is just the OCR one.

    I did the OCR C1 exam, I worked out that I got approximately 55 out of a possible 72. Really infuriating that I do know how to do the last question but put minimal effort into it. Anyway, any suggestions to what rough grade that would be. Really wanted an A on this paper, C2 was of standard difficulty which I was SO pleased about. Any suggestions etc would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
