    Yep - I'm in the same boat! Hoping I can get a C at least.
    Baring in mind I only answered about 4 questions in my mock and just put "2" for the rest of the answers in a bid that maybe one of them is right and I got a C, I don't think/I hope it's not that hard!

    Yes, I'd be happy with a C too. We can just pray for low grade boundaries haha.

    It's only 33/175 for a c
    Surely you should be aiming higher

    grade boundaries are vvv low. do you go to an 11-16 school or an 11-18? I know many 11-16 schools don't teach all the content and just leave it to being good at normal maths

    I'm doing it too! I got an A* on my mock (wtf I know I don't know how) but I'm struggling with some of the "easier" stuff now which is not a good sign...

    Well my school is 11-18 but they have run the course so that the majority of work has to be done individually.

    Its like the last couple of questions on the normal maths paper and about 10 completely new topics which are essentially the basis for A level.

    I'm doing this, really really like this specification actually
    Goal would be an A^, but I think an A* is more realistic and I'll still be really happy with it. I've had A^s in most mocks and practise papers we've done, so hopefully it'll be good
    Good luck with it everyone!
