# OCR GCSE Maths B (J567) - Calc Paper - 9th June 2016 Watch

1. Haven't seen any threads on this paper yet so thought I'd post one. How are you all feeling? Personally, I'm more confident than I was on the non-calc paper - I just hope they don't throw in any really nasty questions towards the end.

I'm aiming for an A*, and think I got 80-85 marks on the last paper (made a few silly errors under the pressure) - so I need to get at least 90 on tomorrow's paper (the bar is well and truly set high). Anyone have any idea about the grade boundaries? I know last year it was 169 marks for the A*. I hope they lower them this year, but my suspicion is that they'll raise them slightly.

Anyway, thanks for putting up with my rambling - what are your thoughts?
2. Anyone actually doing this paper? I notice there's a dearth of material about it, and I read that only 20,000 students actually take it...
3. I'm gonna be doing this paper tomorrow. I'm aiming for an A and think I got about 70-80 marks on the Non-Calc paper. Got any predictions about what gonna be on the test tomorrow?

I reckon it will be easier than the non-calc. Im only doing foundation so hoping for that C grade Only miniutes to go now! ^_^
6. is there an unofficial mark scheme??
7. I think it was a okayish paper, I had to think properly for most of the questions
