    Hey guys I wanted to ask about what's the worse grade I'm aloud in two of these modules to get an A in maths. I sat all 6 maths modules in one year and I'm hoping to get an A, this is how I felt

    C1 - A (93%)
    C2 - A (95%)
    S1 - I think I got between 57-59 marks which is an A since the paper was difficult this year so grade boundaries will be low

    C3 - Checking the unofficial mark scheme I got just over 60 marks (60-62), so I scored a bit over 80% which should be an A

    So guys what's the worst grade I can have in C4 and S2 to get an A in maths?

    For C4 I felt like I got just under 50 marks and for S2 I felt like I got just over 50 marks (hardest S2 paper released this year whereas last years grade boundaries was very high).

    You need 480/600 for an A, so if you got 93, 95 and 80 (lets say for S1), and 80 for C3 then you have 348. That means you need 132 UMS out of the remaining 200, so you need to get 66% in both - a highish C grade.

    Hi guys for those who did as maths I was going through some family issues and it's unfortunate cause I'm a student who works hard and I was predicted high anywayC1 - expect lowest lowestttt 66-67C2- 73M1 - 58 ( really bad day, my morning involved yelling and soothing crying from family ) - it could be much higher depending on the examiner since my mistakes were like making my coefficient of friction negative, copying the mass of one of the masses on the pulley wrong things like that. Hope they go easy on the minusing. Absolutely petrified. It's all I can think about Do you think I'd manage the A for as sigh
