    Is p1 more important than p6 in total of AS maths?
    I just gave p6 today and which was not good. I am worried and hoping to achieve more in pure maths 1 so that I can achieve A.
    Please make me clear. My board is CIE.

    P1 is worth 75 marks so it will contribute more to your final result

    Oh okay so it will help me get A in overall if everything goes well in p1 even though I got C or D in stats.
    So how much remaining marks required in p1 for A in total? I think I will get 25 in stats so
    Is it above 65 out of 75?

    You will need about 95 marks in total for an A. So if you got 25 for P6 you'll need to get 70 out of 75 for P1 to get an A. It all depends on thresholds though so just do your best in P1. All the best

    Btw does the threshold depends on diffculty of the papers?
