    Hi guys i think today's paper had some really thinking questions that involved multople steps and knowledge. I'm thinking, am i the only one that found the tangent, the interest after a year, one of them quadratics thT had to be written in the form of a2-7 +b or something similar, and felt like needed longer time for each question as generally when is results day please, nobody knew thT was on the exam. Thanks!
    I agree! Because of the amount of strangely worded/long questions, we deffo needed more time! I found it so hard!

    I found it challenging. Can the grade boundaries change or are they the same as from August?

    Depends on how people got on with it. If people struggled with it then grade boundaries will be low

    I was reading online that you need a 15 point something percent to pass the Edexcel maths. It used to be 37% I think but with the grades changing and making the paper a bit harder the percentage has gone down.
    I done poorly on the first paper, the second paper went really well. I found the third paper difficult but better then the first one 😬

    That may be for higher. How many people did Foundation? How did you find it?

    Yeah, I’m the same! Really hoping for a 4/5. I’ll be amazed if I get any higher 😂

    I don’t know about you guys but at my school the teachers put everyone doing Foundation. There were only 3-8 people doing higher who need it to get onto the course they want. Is it possible that this year there was more people doing foundation than higher ?

    I feel the same, there was only 1 person doing higher in my college, and thats only because they chose to do it again (they got a 4, but wanted a higher grade).

    Many people found the foundation exams difficult.

    Tbh that’s what I’m counting on. I’m really hoping that the grade boundaries are low I did bad in non calculator what will save me, is the calculators papers.

    Who’s idea was it to bring A level Maths into GCSE maths?
