    I was getting all A's in past papers, but I think I'll be lucky to get a C!

    Verdicts? I reckon we'll see record low grade boundries lol.

    EDIT: Crap, guess it's just me who flunked the C1 :'(

    Eh. Most people in my year found the test insanely hard.
    This pretty much will mean lower grade boundaries. It's only the last 3 questions that actually were difficult.
    Although it could be caught up by M1.

    yeah i re-sat this today and haven't had a chance to see how people thought it!

    i found it quite difficult for a C1, considering they threw a 7 marker in there. i definitely got the 7 marker wrong as well, and left a 4 marker out too.

    dissapointing paper, considering i have been getting 90% + in past ones.

    Being a second year and resitting both Core 1 and 2 exams, I found Core 1 to be considerably easy. Core 2 was insanely hard, however. Up until today, the hardest Core 2 paper there had been was May 2011. As of today, the hardest Core 2 paper was May 2012. All I'm saying is that I feel sorry for people sitting Core 2 in 2013!

    I thought C2 was pretty hard, definitely dropped about 10 marks from not knowing what to do! I thought C1 was ok though, easier than the Jan one when I did it the first time around :lol: Having said that, didn't get the question where it was show that the volume is whatever - no idea how it didn't have y's in!

    same here! did not get that at all!

    meh i thought i'd done alright in C1 but looking at people's answers ive made loads of mistakes not good when C2 was the worst paper i've ever done in my life... really really not looking forward to getting my grade for Maths.
    need to ACE D1 next week to be even within a chance of a good grade. *sigh*

    This was me resitting C1 as well :emo: C2 was pretty bad...hopefully D1 is kinder next week to make up for it! It's really annoying how the papers are so much harder than all the past papers have been, you don't feel prepared at all. There goes my chance at Cambridge...

    it was pretty hard, hopefully the grade boundaries are lower but that's what i hoped for when i did c3 in January and they only dropped the grade boundaries by three marks.

    aw yeah really hoping D1 is good to us! i guess i can retake but if it follows the pattern of recent years my retake will be even harder :/
    i know, i did all the past papers available multiple times and nothing was as hard as today!
    i just can't seem to move on from it either and am just sitting here wallowing in self pity :P
