    i don't know- did you do a mock paper in year 10 which was marked by
    edexcel. Also did u receive a percentage score?

    If you are looking for predictions for the English paper One, you should look at checking out Mr Bruff on YouTube. However, don't just prepare for a prediction as that is chance, and I wouldn't suggest taking chances.

    The average mark was like 12 marks on each 3 papers- but that was in year 10 where a lot of people like myself didn't cover the first section of unit
    1 of physics, chm and bio. So this year because everyone will have finished the course , i think the average mark would be 28 which is equivalent to a grade 5. Have you finished the course. And when is your first exam. Mine is on may the 15th.

    Yeah I did those papers. I didn't get a percentage score back but I was given my percentile score where I did compared to the rest of candidates. Also my teacher gave us a topic list from that exam that's highlighted based on which topics we did best on.

    My first exam is computing on the 14th of May.

    For science, I usually get around 48/60. My teacher says it is an strong 8, but I don't know whether to believe her because it seems so low for an 8.

    I wasn't given an exact percentile, but I got told top 5% for all sciences. I did best in Chemistry and worst in Physics, which surprised me because I normally do best in Physics and worst in Chemistry lol.

    oh my god!! Same. Literally i got 48/60 42/60 in bio and 37/60 in physics and altogether it was an 7-. I think it should have been higher. I hope the highest mark in the country is like 40 on every paper . So 120/180 marks is a 9.

    Wow that is so good!!! That means you must be guaranteed like a 9 in the summer. Have you finished the course. Plus i do like the maths equations in physics-there so easy . I have transformers to finish and that is it.

    I hope the boundaries are quite low for the first year. I'm aiming for an 8, but I need a 7 to study Physics at sixth form.

    True -but for alevels i'm going to study bio, chem and maths. And im predicted by the school to get a 9- which is more likely to turn out as a 7.

    I don't think I'll get a 9, but I'm still trying I like the physics equations too. I've finished the course in Biology and Physics, but my Chemistry teacher always waffles on and goes off on an unrelated tangent nearly every lesson, so we're nowhere near finishing the Chemistry syllabus. We aren't even half way through the Chemistry paper 2 topics and have 1 lesson left until the exam, so I'm trying to self teach it with Seneca Leaning and textbooks. I'm quite concerned for Paper 2 though, on my last Chemistry paper 2 I only got 24/60.

    You'll probably get higher than a 7, the boundaries are likely to be low because it's the first year. At sixth form, I'm studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics, and Psychology

    I think u should buy the cgp edexcel 9-1 book-it is so helpful-u don't even understand. It has everything. My teacher also waffles on saying where wasting time - but its like saying love your wasting 10 minutes
    everyday of our learning and ur expecting us to get like 7s? She sees me as an inferior for some reason-the whole science department to be honest.

    I already have the CGP book, it's really useful. The thing is, some people in our class were going to complain to our teacher, but she's so nice. She's been teaching our class since year 8 and she says we're her favorite class so we don't want to say anything in case it hurts her feelings.

    I'm from Essex. I would prefer to take 3 A-Levels but my Sixth form makes us take 4.
