41-72 marks. I had to generalise it to both Edexcel and AQA as you didn't clarify what exam board you are with. It's usually 46 marks for a 4 and 72 marks for a 5 this is for AQA as I searched up this years grade boundaries 9-1. For Edexcel it's 41 marks for a 4 and 68 for a 5 if you're with Edexcel.

4 is a weak pass and 5 is a good pass. Each paper is out of 80 and joining all 3 papers you need to score a minimum of the marks mentioned above.

For a 4 yes. It's for higher tier though.

That is interesting, OP should aim for close to full marks in each if they can properly understand the content
I agree. Personally, I think OP should really try for a 9.

I'm resitting maths for the 3rd time so I defo won't get a 9. I mean I could but my degree only wants a 4. And I'd be happy with it tbh. I find maths extremely hard lol.

Ohh right. Getting a 4 shouldn't be hard at all this time round. What degree do you want to do? Generally speaking, students can get a grade 7 without revising.

Yeah, I thought that but then again not everybody thinks logically and therefore may struggle with maths at GCSE as I saw many in my Maths Class do at GCSE, even to the point where when practicing exam questions a Teacher saying to another student not to try it as it is unlikely they would get it in the exam. Also not really sure that much about 9-1 Maths as I took GCSE's in NI in 2016, and some people worked really hard for an A or B whilst others cruised all year to an A

It's the new spec which has more topics and there's one more paper but I'm sure with lots of practice , I can pass. I'm not one of those students that can do do really well with such little revision. The understanding part is the most important part and I struggle with that. Child nursing

Yeah that's a fair point. The grade boundaries for 9-1 were expected to be higher but ended up being lower than a lot of people thought. Therefore, quite a lot of students ended up getting the top 8/9 grades. Yeah, I know someone who barely revised and ended up getting an A* while another student revised so much and ended up getting a B which is what they wanted.

Yeah that's true and some of the questions have gotten tougher. It's mostly logic and rote learning, I wish I had known this before I sat my exams. There's not too much to learn, mostly practice. Oh that's an interesting degree.
