    I was wondering how everyone found this years further maths papers, and what the a* boundary will be? Did u find these papers harder or easier than previous years? I am predicting about 113 for a*

    I found paper 1 fairly tough, compared to others, but paper 2 was easier IMO. So, I reckon 110-115 would be a good guess for A*, and 143/4 for A^

    I don't remember anything from paper one, so hopefully it can't have been too bad? Or maybe I've just repressed all the bad memories... Paper two was really good though, except for that one matrices question

    The grade boundaries last year were 149 for a*^, 118 for a* and 87 for a ... hoping for something a bit lower this year!!
