    I'm aware of that but do you know exactly what grade it is in the 9-1 system? When I look online, the marks seem to differ in every website I visit?

    It varies from year to year but Id say around a level 4. Of course this only being 1 paper out of 3 but im considering the relative boundaries for all 3 papers and 19/80, which is about 24% is a solid level 4

    19/80 would’ve been a grade 4. The boundaries for a four were 16,16,14 on each paper. So you would’ve got a grade 4.

    Okay, a person has a mock this coming Thursday for math and that was their mark for Paper 1? Can they jump easily to a Grade 5 within a span of 3 evenings?

    So you have done paper 1 and still have paper 2 and 3 left? Well yes of course you can get a grade 5 still.
    A grade 5 according to last years boundaries was 72/240 on the higher paper. So if you have got 19 you’d need to get another 53 marks total (72-19). That’s 26 marks on one paper and 27 marks on another paper. So as long as you get 26-27 marks on each paper you would get a grade 5 according to last years boundaries.
    But obviously this year the boundaries are probably going to increase slightly by around 5-10 marks maybe.

    66/80 is 82% mate, which is closer to a 7.

    No that’s definitely wrong unless you are talking about foundation, on the higher paper 63/80 was a 9.
    Although if you are talking about foundation then yes that would be a 5. As in foundation 53/80 was a 5. And 5 is the highest you can get on foundation.

    We do one gcse assessment term and I have mine coming up in two weeks! But yeah we do, I don’t think it’s necessarily for practice (of course it is, but.. i hope you know what i mean) it’s just a paper.
