Questions 1, 2, 3 and 5 total 40 marks, meaning under last years grade boundaries you would get a 5 with full marks (40 for a 5)

Depending on how skilled you are at English Language, you may have gotten a high 3-meaning paper 2 you will need to answer every question.

I don’t think you’re right about that. Q5 is 40 marks in its own right.

What if Section B was missed completely? Can a grade 4 still be achieved

Again, 40 marks, unless you get 35/40 in the section you're answered you'll miss on out a 4. Also, boundaries are going up this year.

That's what the grade boundaries were last year. So if OP gets 40/40 they COULD get a 5, but the boundaries will go up, so probably not.

No, I mean, OP didn’t answer question 4. Not question 5. And question 5 is worth a total of 40 marks. Q1: 4, Q2: 8, Q3: 8, Q4: 20, Q5: 40.

Probably more than that. But I'd aim for 50 marks to be safe, but good luck!

How comes you didn't answer Section B?
