    I'm not looking for a definite answer, but more of an average, accurate answer. I'm super paranoid about failing Maths, but if I know how many marks are needed for at least a C, I'll hopefully be more motivated to reach the marks needed and feel a bit better about it. Cheers

    p.s - I know the grade boundaries change slightly every year but a rough estimate for the 2018 math exams would be awesome

    On the new specification, the boundaries were
    • Edexcel [Foundation: 158/240 for a 5, 122/240 for a 4, Higher: 68/240 for a 5, 41/240 for a 4]
    • AQA [Foundation: 156/240 for a 5, 124/240 for a 4, Higher: 72/240 for a 5, 46/240 for a 4]
    • OCR [Foundation: 174/300 for a 5, 126/300 for a 4, Higher: 83/300 for a 5, 46/300 for a 4]

    Of course this was the first year where the new specification was examined, so it's definitely subject to change.
