I am stressed about results day. Hopefully not about maths but chemistry physics and English language. In the English exams, I don’t think my story was great and I do wonder about how I did on the literature questions. And had a bad head ache on paper 1 chemistry and paper 2 physics was crap. So I am extremely worried right now
Did you get special consideration for your headache (I’m not sure if you can) and are you taking triple science? Don’t worry about your exams, nothi can be done now and I’m sure you’ll do fine

Yeah, I understand you on paper 1, I always hate doing the mental maths as I can do the methods very well. I usually do worst in paper 2 as I'm very cautious in paper 1, then when I get to 2 I can do the questions really quickly and normally make loads of little mistakes. I think I got about 73 in paper 1, and 70 in paper 2 (which is very high and I thought I was doing well) and then paper 3 came along... 59 marks. Yeah, the question of the bearing was from a further maths book so that's why it would have been hard to do, and that tangent question definitely required a lot of thought! Paper 3 really ruined my morale and I'm going to miss out on my target grade if the boundaries increase, but hopefully they stay the same/decrease.

My only worry is that because of all the A-Level controversies, Edexcel may not worry as much about GCSE
A-level controversies??

I’ve been getting 9s since year 10 but I’m pretty sure I’ve flucked the real thing and will end up with a 7 I was really anxious in the exams and ran out of time, paper 3 also killed me. Maybe 170 ish I’m thinking? 60 in paper 2 but 55 in the others (bearing in mind I usually got 65-70 in mocks)

*IF YOU’RE A PREDICTED GRADE 9 STUDENT*

How did you find the papers this year? Did you perform as expected or higher/lower? What’s your estimated mark as well as your prediction for the grade 9 boundary?

I took the exams this year and I think I’ve got 201-203 which is right around last years boundary of 202. I hope the boundaries go down as I should’ve got much higher but paper 3 screwed me over

EDIT: Added a poll for the predicted grade 9 boundary
I'm literally in the exactly the same boat as you lol. I know I'm in the (very) low 200s and I'm just hoping the grade boundaries don't go down.

I found paper 1 the easiest and then paper 3 and then paper 2 .
Paper 3 had by far the easiest last questions in comparison to the other papers despite me finding paper 1 easiest.
Why the hell am I commenting here probably gonna get a grade 8 not a 9.

The grade boundaries are most likely going up by 3-4 marks in my opinion.
