    Definitely won't be 69/75 for 80UMS what planet are you living on...

    IMO an A (80UMS) will be around 62/75

    Can you resist? There's a whole new specification and everything. IDK how it works.

    Yeah you can, it will most likely be a re-sit only paper but otherwise just normal

    These are quite high. 50 for an E won't happen, in my opinion. Low 40s, at most, I'd say.

    you're saying its 67% for a E and 80% for a C? I did badly last year on core 1 and couldn't possibly have got over 60 but still got 75 UMS for a mid level B so I don't think your boundaries are accurate

    Kinda annoyed because I could do every question but I went wrong with my calculation, last year I got a C but I'm hoping that this year I'll some how get 80ums I was hoping for like 90ums but I guess there's nothing like good old exam pressure. Now I'm hoping that c2 is just full of trig so I can make up For c1.

    My advice to everyone just forget about it for now you can't change what you wrote, start revising for your other exams

    i think thats what everyone is saying no one is saying it was conceptually hard so everyone got the concepts and what to do, its just the exam would induce a lot of mistakes, After thinking clearly I think I got an A grade I think. I might have a B grade though absolute worst case a C grade if this paper comes back below a C I think at that point I give up.
    I think Min I have 60 marks probably 62-65 so its going to be close either way.

    Any legit grade boundary guesses? Can we please not have people saying 75/75 is an A and 69/75 is an A.

    Drop all the grades down by 1 and that seems more accurate, still a bit high.

    Yeah I'm guessing I got around 60+ depending on how the marks were allocated. It just sucks because you are so close to the answer and yet so far away. Im hoping you get what you want

    This is the raw marks you need for each grade from previous years.
