Hi,I'm in my final year of A-levels and currently in the middle of taking all my exams as well as my AS retakes for C1 and C2. The new spec has arrived and I have heard this is the last year to retake C1 and C2, however, is it possible that they will have ANOTHER chance to retake C1 C2 in 2019 for OCR (or any other exam boards)? Thanks

Yes, the last resit opportunity is in June 2019. See http://www.ocr.org.uk/administration...e-entry-rules/

anyone else doing c1 next Wednesday, if so, worried?

the only issue I can see is that the grade boundaries will be very high as it's only retakes sitting the exam also Edexcel will need to find a way of making a "little harder than gcse" paper difficult for A-Level students

Grade boundaries will not be "very high". They will be as normal, and the paper will be of normal difficulty. It is irrelevant who the cohort are. As evidenced by last summer's A Level papers (new spec) that were only taken by Further Maths students and yet the grade boundaries were low (63% for A grade).

I disagree mate. you simply can't compare the difficulty of further and c1, if Wednesday's paper is anything like last few years it will be a walk in the park for us retake students which means the normal distribution curves going to be skewed. I just don't see how Edexcel will allow that

I'm not sure about the normal boundaries. I saw the C2 boundary for edexcel last year was 69 for an A. It might be tough.

can't lie bro that exam was ridiculously easy compared to other c2 papers, but the abundance of retakes probably didn't help either.

with respect to that and how easy c1 is as a module, 70 for an A tomorrow wouldn't be unreasonable.
