    This is regarding, the two test I've taken for maths GCSE (Foundation) I never did maths when I was younger, I had to pretty much do a 6 month course for everything starting from scratch. I've done my two tests for Foundation maths GCSE 2016 and the first one I did really terribly in I think, the nerves took over, I wasn't used to such an environment. I say best case scenario I got 50%
    The second one I feel as though I did better, I knew what to expect and I stayed calm and collected throughout. I would say best case scenario it would be 80%.

    First exam is 80 marks and is worth 40%, The second exam is 120 and is worth 60 %. The past two grade boundries for this qualification has been 139 and 144.

    Can someone please help me figure out if I have possibly scraped by at all. And if not, is there still a chance for a University to take you in considering the fact that you have achieved the course grades they have asked you.{DDM} which is the exact grade. Is it unheard of for a Uni to take a student in who hasn't got a C in maths? I've been trying to think about all the variables since I finished the exam. I really hope someone can help me just for peace of mind if nothing else.

    1st exam best case = 40 marks

    2nd exam best case = 96 marks

    So best case scenario you're looking at around 136 marks which is close to the boundary. You never know results day could pleasantly surprise you! My best friend's sister got into RG without a C in maths so it's still possible.

    Good Luck!
