Looking at the grade boundaries from previous years, it must be something like that because some of the marks for the questions were strange, can't be giving 5marks on a basic C grade question tbh, my opinion, what do u think?

You may found it easy, but there was a news paper about it and how students found it really hard. An example of this is the June 2014 paper, it was so ****ing easy, I did it as paper for revision & got 164, even though I am a B student and the grade boundaries were low as ****. But it depends how everyone done in Manchester tbh

It's one of my 4 subjects for A-level but I need to clarify with the headmaster on results day if I want to do it. I'm still not entirely sure what A-level subjects I wanna do

Yeah hopefully, do you know that trial and improvement question, I got 3.7, done everything, 3 significant places. Would I get 2/3 marks for it? I showed all my working out, etc.

For that question, they may accept 3.7 and 3.8 as the answer. Many people have said it and it's happened on a previous paper mark scheme. i put 3.8. You'll definitely 2/3 marks if you've showed the working but youput the wrong answer.

The boundaries are never that high, it will be nearer 60 for a C, 160 for A*, B is about right and A maybe a bit lower, maybe 133.

They'd only accept the correct answer. you just need to sub in 3.8, 3.7 and 3.75 to see if it rounds to 3.7 or 3.8

Right i see. But on the worked solutions youtube video, the comments say that apparently they accept both 3.7 and 3.8?
