    I'm currently going to retake my maths exams with AQA. I'm aiming for a C which is suppose to be grade 4-5. There are going to be 3 papers this year so does anyone know what percentage would be a 4 or 5 in a Higher Foundation AQA Maths Paper? And I've also heard that the minimum pass next year will move to a 5 instead of a 4, is this true?

    The last sentence in your paragraph is correct. No one really knows what the grade boundaries will be. I would say around 75% for a C in the foudnation paper and 25% for a C in the higher papers.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm just curious of what will happen if I get a a Grade 4 now and then by 2 years time would I need to resit my maths exam to get a Grade 5? Because some times Employers might ask for a grade 5 in few years time since that will be in the minimum pass.

    I think it will be clearer around the time that results are released, you can decide then. Just aim for as high as you can.
