i agree the report is rather compact and i would have liked to have seen the percentage they set each band at rather than the lowest mark for each grade. As for avoiding the easiness of the paper and the low percentages you are wrong as it says

"the pass mark was raised by just over 1% ( from 51/110 to 62/130) to reflect the extra 20 marks that mainly targeted the C grade candidate"

This is from the comments of grade boundries

Also above this it is stated that there was no significant change in the percentage/distribuation of awards this year

thats unfair. Shouldnt they give a B to someone who gets 60%?

That depends on the relative difficulty of the exam and the performance of people sitting the exam.

Higher maths in 2004 was very very easy so 63% is not an unfair percentage for a B.

Did you sit higher maths in 2004 or are you sitting it this year?

Seeing as the exam was supposedly easy in 2004 does everyone think it will be much harder this year.

thast not how it works really because the 2005 exam was already made up in time for the 2005 exam to be used as a backup.

exams in general are getting a bit easier i personally feel anyway

There were lots of C level questions and no really difficult A/B questions.

It was a very nice paper to sit on the day I'm sure most would agree.

The thing is, it doesn't really matter how easy or hard an exam paper is as the pass marks are adjusted to reflect this.

to get an A for Higher Maths, you usually have to get 75-80% - much higher than most other subjects.

They make each years exams a few years before so they would've made the 2005 exam before the 2004 was even sat, I think.

Yip, thats the case ally. My teacher told us a few days ago. They can be used as backups if the real exams gets leaked out.

I hope that if last year was an "easy" exam that it doesnt mean this years one (which I am sitting) will be a hard one.

1% doesn't seem to be a big account for 20 extra level C marks! That means that this years paper could have 20 less easy mrks to gain but only 1% less for each grade?
