    Im from the UK and will be taking my gcses in a couple months. i was wondering if anyone knows if the grade boundaries for maths will be the same or increase by a large amount. I'm not that great at maths so will try to achieve a 4 (new spec) at minimum.

    I have heard that it depends on how the country does but just curious?

    Which exam board?

    They dont decide the grade boundaries till later. Expect them to stay roughly the same. GL

    For higher its 32/240 and foundation 113/240, however these lower grade boundaries are based on how challenging students find papers (which is shown by their marks). Grade boundaries vary every year, so aim higher.

    They adjust after the marks are in, so treat with caution.
