    Hey guys,

    Who sat the Edexcel GCSE Maths Non Calc exam on May 26th?
    -How did you find it?(Personally, I thought it was much harder than last year's paper)
    -Do you have any topic predictions for tomorrow's exam?
    -Does anyone think Edexcel will lower the grade boundaries?

    I agree it was pretty hard to get a C, I wish I did foundation..
    I'm pretty pissed thst everyone else I know found it easy.
    Hopefully the grade boundaries wil be low but I think the highest to aim for a c is 75 but the grade boundaries don't go up that high considering there were pretty hard questions at the start maybe it will go up by just by 5 marks so a c is likley 70. Remember they don't want to many people failing.
    It also depends in the difficulty of the calculator paper.
    I think I did very bad in the non-calculator so I'm aiming for around a 60 in the Calculator paper. Just to secure that C.
    Good luck
