    Hey everyone! I just wrote the Math exam today, Paper 1, and it went so bad. It was the hardest exam i've ever seen and it was nothing like the past papers. How did you do???

    I totally agree! I was on a 6 before this paper, now I'm probably on a 2! I don't know if there's anything we can do about it now- but some of the stuff in it I had never seen before!!

    I got a level 7 on last year's paper in the mock, now i'm praying for a level 5 in this one. That was by far the hardest maths exam i have ever taken.

    Was predicted a high six and it will be a bloody miracle if I can scrape it after that sh*t show!!
    That TZ2 paper was NOTHING like any of the past papers i'd done - who the hell is Jashanti and why can't she just buy the damn car and move on?

    Does anyone think that the grade boundaries will be lowered because of its difficulty? And if so then by how much?

    Omg, paper 1 was ok but paper 2 was much worse! I felt like crying. The only questions I could solve were the trigonometry. Everything else was horrible

    From what i heard, the boundaries might be lowered (they'd better) because of how difficult it was. I'm literally so disappointed but i hope we all get the grades we deserve in the end! Good luck guys!

    I do IB in Spain, and Ib will compare the grades with other countries in order to do the maths studies boundaries. My paper 1 was the worst. So if other countries also have lower grades then they might lower the boundaries. So lets see what happens.
