    33/80 is probably a 5 (possibly a 4, but I doubt it), tbh, judging from the old specification. It may be a 6, but we can't really say yet.

    33/80 is a little over 40% which isn't that great tbh

    Higher tier or foundation tier?
    If it's foundation then you've a lot of work to do if you want to get a useful grade in the summer.
    If it's higher tier then it's ok and, if matched by similar results from the other two papers, should be around about a good pass at level 5. Whether that's "good" depends on your goals and aptitude.

    It's still probably a good pass, which is fine for those that are only aiming for a 5

    You can do better if your practice more. Do more past papers from the old spec as well (syllabus has not changed massively so still relevant). Self mark those papers and look where you went wrong and then revise the topic till you get it maybe using online tutorials on youtube btw Examsolutions is great for revision. I suggest you redo the papers again and again to make sure you are confident. Also Mathsgenie is great for practice on specific topics if you feel you need more practice. Also 33/80 is not the best mark.
