Course: Edexcel GCSE Mathematics 1MA1 (Higher Tier)

3 exams in May/June 2020 (1 Non-Calculator, 2 Calculator - each marked out of 80)

10CM2 Exam Results from May/June 2018:

3 x Grade 7, 9 x Grade 6, 14 x Grade 5, 2 x Grade 4

Grade Boundaries (out of 240 possible marks):

Sitting | Grade 9 | Grade 8 | Grade 7 | Grade 6 | Grade 5 | Grade 4 | Grade 3 |

Jun 2017 | 190 | 157 | 124 | 96 | 68 | 41 | 27 |

Nov 2017 | 189 | 150 | 112 | 85 | 58 | 32 | 19 |

Jun 2018 | 202 | 170 | 139 | 109 | 79 | 50 | 35 |

These are the higher tier grade boundaries for the first three sittings of the new Edexcel GCSE Maths. The first two sets of exams were not at all popular with students but the June 2018 exams were viewed as more reasonable. The grade boundaries were higher but students felt they had more opportunity to demonstrate their skills and knowledge.
