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
5. Well a C is a 4.. I did one in school and got 66/80, which was only a 5.
6. Last years grade boundaries are all on this website

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.
12. Depends on if it is higher or foundation

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.

Yeah I was talking about foundation and I’m in year 9 lol, but I also did a higher paper and 30/80 is a 5

Do you do GCSE practice papers in Yr. 9?

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.
