    These are terrible wrong. 50% of the paper tests grades 7, 8 and 9 so you definitely won't need to get 57.5% to get grade 6! 35% for grade 4 is also much too high. You rarely needed 35% to get a C on the old GCSE and that was considerably easier than the reformed qualification.
    So they screwed me over?
    Will this affect my college application? 25%, and a U is pretty bad.

    I don't suppose they did it deliberately. There is a lot of confusion out there. This shouldn't affect your college application.

    I've already provided you with proof. Your OCR document says you can get grade 3 and so does the NCETM document if you actually bother to read it.
    I deleted the relevant messages. Although it is possible to get a grade 3, it says that if you just miss a grade 4 then you can get a grade 3. This means that the grades boundaries for 4 and 3 must be very close.

    Not that close as it happens. The gap between 3 and 4 is PROVISIONALLY set as half the gap between 4 and 5. It can be increased, if necessary, to make sure a large number of candidates do not fail altogether.
