[Exam Cram] Ask Pearson/Edexcel all your A-level and GCSE Maths questions!Watch
This half term we have an amazing offer for you all currently working through your exam season. Ask your exam board the questions you need to make that final push through your revision.
That's right, this half term we are offering you the chance to talk to your exam board and get the help you need this half term on TSR. This thread is for the 28th of May 2019 or in other words........
Post below your questions and Edexcel/Pearson will reply! Ask about specific issues you are having with your revision, topics that you are struggling with or anything about the exams and the exam format themselves!
Unfortunately there are some rules so we can make this thread work for everyone
- No asking what is in the up and coming exam, the exam board won't answer no matter how desperate you are!
- No asking for low boundaries! This isn't up to how the examiners are feeling on that day. Questions around grade boundaries are fine though
- Keep it civil !
You can start getting your questions in now and Pearson will be come through and answer them tomorrow
Good luck for the rest of your exams guys!
I do GCSE btw.

Same with grade boundaries, normally grade boundaries don't shift a massive amount but would a "easier" exam than last year mean the grade boundary for an A* will significant increase from 76% or will it stay similar ~80 regardless of the exam difficulty?
What stats past papers are the best to prep for the exam?
How useful are old spec C3 and C4 papers for prep
"...sadly there did seem to be some students who were not that well prepared for the change in content and question style".
Can you please give some recommendations for the 2019 cohort so that they can be more prepared than the students mentioned in the report? Do you expect students this year to be better prepared than last year's students?
A Level further maths students only have practice papers to revise from since there are no past papers. I'm concerned that a lot of students are going to get caught out by the new style of the exam, similar to what happened last year for the first A Level maths cohort (as mentioned above). Do you have any tips for further maths students and should they expect the real paper to be similar in difficulty to the practice/specimen papers?
