    I've had a look at the unofficial mark scheme and I made some stupid mistakes, I think I got around 41. How marks will I need to aim for in my calculator to get a B overall.

    A b is usually between 90-95 for both papers, so you'll want to aim for about 55 marks to get a b, but I'd aim for 60 if you can to really secure it. Good luck!

    Hopefully, from what I've seen on here everyone found paper 1 quite hard, so to balance it out paper 2 will be either be easier or they'll lower the grade boundaries, although they won't be as low as last year's. I hope paper 2 is easier though because I didn't do as well as I wanted on paper 1 so I need almost full marks on paper 2 to secure the A* I need for my a level options

    It's not that clear so I can resend any bits you can't read

    I posted a picture of the whole front of the sheet before I realised it wasn't clear. I put up two pictures of the page split in half but I can't work out how to delete the original picture so just ignore it, sorry
