    Got an A and am very happy. Waiting for my raw mark which should be emailed to me soon.

    Would just like to point out that perhaps the grade boundaries are higher than before as schools with students that are less capable may have decided to drop the course with the introduction of the 9-1 GCSE maths that is harder than before. As a result, the boundaries are higher as the proportion of A's etc. is roughly the same but there are only more capable students taking it.
    Well done & thats a fair point

    Wow...that point was a complete revelation to me :lol: Probably should have thought of it...but looking at the exam statistics entries are down around 3000 and despite the high grade boundaries the percentage of entries getting each grade is up significantly so that is the answer. 49.45% of people getting As though...wow! Slightly concerned about what my classmates will have got now though as some of them were struggling to get out of the 40s and were hoping for Cs...hopefully they did better in the real exam!
    Is the 49.45% out of everyone who took it or just your school? Where did you find that statistic? Just curious lol

    Everyone! My school has only given limited info about A level results, let alone telling us our ad maths grades unfortunately.
    It's on the page 7 of the OCR provisional exam statistics page here: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/408004-...-june-2017.pdf

    Well done to all of you who got A's, the hard work paid off!!!

    Personally I'm not too desperate to get it back, as I'm concerned more about my GCSEs, however an A will definitely be helpful with my UCAS application.
    Sorry mate but it just doesn't matter. It won't affect your application, to put it bluntly.

    Ok lol, I'm not too fussed about it, but an A looks better than a B or C.

    Oh I won't be anywhere near 90/100...think I only answered 92 or 93 marks anyway as I left the last 5 marker (never could do those questions!) and a couple of other answers I think I missed out. Not even sure if I actually got an A...

    I emailed the head of maths and he hasn't replied... irritating times!! I really hope I've got an A otherwise I'll be so dissappointed. Ngl the boundary was high for an A this year, but a lot seemed to do it so fingers crossed for us both - keep me updated please

    I got my grade back but the school says they haven't got the actual marks back yet. Have you guys got the raw mark yet?
