    Okay, I know that there isn't anything that I can do about it now, but I just had a look at the grade boundaries for this years GCSE's that have been released and to get a C you need 70 marks out of 200.

    I really don't think that I've got it!

    Does anybody know the strictest Maths grade boundaries so far?

    You might have done a lot better than you think. Have you looked at unofficial mark schemes? If worst comes to worst, you can always retake

    Do employers need to know whether you did a retake...? I mean, they'd be able to see by looking at the year you took it, but would they really care that much? They don't care about GCSEs much so long as you have English and Maths, right, once you're educated past GCSE level?

    Did unofficial mark schemes make you think you got no more than 110?

    It was mainly the teacher's annotated version of the exam, she answered all the questions and i counted up marks based on if i got the answer and the same workings out
