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.

Yes, round about that many marks for a grade 4.

Wait 41/240 for a 4 sounds wrong?

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

That is interesting, OP should aim much higher though.

Original post by M4cc4n4

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 know for edexcel you needed to get 68 across all three papers in higher for a 5. I got a 7 which was 124 marks across all papers

Thanks so much guys!

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.

No problem, aim for a 8/9 though.

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.
