    I am really worrying about my Edexcel Maths Module B exam. I didn't do as well as I had hoped on Paper 3 and really want an A*, so I am praying for low grade boundaries! To get an A* in Paper 3, these have been the boundaries for the past few years.
    November 2015: 71/80 needed for A*.
    June 2015: 69/80 needed for A*.
    November 2014: 70/80 needed for A*.
    June 2014: 69/80 needed for A*.
    November 2013: 70/80 needed for A*.
    June 2013: 72/80 needed for A*.

    I know the boundaries have not come out yet but can anyone guess if they don't know what the grade boundary for June this year will be? I am really worrying so can anyone help? Please!!!

    These boundaries really don't look any different from each other, so most likely will be similar. Please just relax and stop worrying about it. You will be given an A* if you fit into the A* category (statistically and knowledge wise). It is becoming increasingly difficult to get an A* however and many people will find themselves one or two marks from the threshold so please do not be disappointed with an A.

    As you have seen yourself, they rarely change by very much but there is nobody using TSR who has the expertise and results data to be able to accurately predict boundaries. It takes a team of expert people with access to all the current and historical data to be able to decide them.
