If that's true then it's completely unjust. There should room allowed for people to make mistakes, especially under the pressure of an exam. There's no way you should be penalised for losing a few marks on a C/D question. Surely if you can answer the A/A* questions, unlike the actual C/D grade student would be able to, proves that your a top grade student, and proves you should be able to get the grade.

Edexcel maths - nobody can get an A/A* even if 90% ++ attained in exam watch

I don't think it's true, surely more people would have been told about it by their teachers if it was?

It is true that the higher GCSE has to contain a range of D, C, B, A and A* questions and since you usually have to get a mark in the high 80's for an A* if you don't revise/don't correctly do the easier stuff you will not earn enough marks for the best grades. Many students seem to make the mistake of only revising the difficult topics. There were very few really A* questions on the Edexcel GCSE this summer. But if you get 90+ % you will get an A*Last edited by gdunne42; 19-06-2010 at 14:08.
