    So I sat the edexcel gcse maths 9-1 higher paper today and I found it so hard but everyone else came out saying it was easy. I tried so hard but I skipped loads of the questions and I checked the unofficial mark scheme afterwards and most of the ones I did answer I got them wrong. Can I still pass if I make up for it on the other papers? And what happens if I do fail? Please someone help me

    Do you mean 60% across both papers or 60% in each one?

    Don't worry about it. Just keep trying hard, and go over the stuff you didn't understand. You have definitely passed.

    Hah, that happened to me. Some guy was shouting that he found it EASY straight after the exams. This made me anxious.

    I got an 8, the other guy got a 6.

    Punchline - it's usually better than you think it is

    isn't it like 48% for a six? that's enough to lose more than half marks and still pass!!!

    haha congrats on your 8. I wish I could say that I did well enough for an 8 but genuinely I'll be lucky if I get a 2

    Never listen to people who say exams are easy, it's just arrogant and embarrassing if they come out with a bad grade.
