Honestly paper 1 made me happy, I walked out of the exam hall in a good mood but paper 2 killed it.
What do you guys think the grade boundaries will be this year.

Probably 70 ish percent tbh, the first paper was relatively easy and even paper 2 was alright, most people who take advanced higher maths have a good grasp of maths and perform reasonably well in advanced higher maths.

It's hard to say, but I think the grade boundary for an A at AH maths will probably be slightly lower. Maybe 67, 68%. Could be even lower.

81=A1 70=A2 56=B 43=C (D isnt a pass so i just left it out) so 43% to pass, easy peasy.

Did you ask your school or can you find the percentage online somewhere?

My school sent it to me
Wait how do I find out the percentages. I got an A but I think its probably a low band 2 or something

Either get it from your teachers or call the SQA themselves (they gave me mine last year for Highers)
