Hey sorry - the link is wrong and only has the papers. There are no Statistics or Decision mark schemes just yet - only the other modules
Do you have the fp2 paper?

3. I am aware of that. I was asking for the actual paper, not the mark scheme.

Thank you. Didn't see the fp2 paper there initially for some reason.
6. Any predictions for S2 grade boundaries?
I think it would be A*-69,A-64,B-57,C-50,D-44

It wasn't easier than last year to be honest.

I don't think this paper was easier. I'm sure the average mark will be lower given the more unstructured questions there were.

Definitely wouldn't say it was easier than last year's paper. There were a lot more variables and unknowns that had to be calculated whereas I felt like last year's paper was literally plugging numbers into equations. I'm still a bit undecided between whether the paper was a standard paper or a bit harder than usual.

Guess that's very subjective haha, for the majority, probably not

No sorry, you can only have M2 in normal maths if you also have M1 in normal maths. In your case, you can only have the following combinations in normal maths:
• M1 and M2
• M1 and S1
• M1 and D1
• S1 and D1
• S1 and S2

20. Did anyone else find this really hard?

How much UMS would 50/75 get me?

I really need 57-60 UMS ; as I got 60 on C3 (74 UMS) and 67 on C4 (80 UMS). And I need 209 UMS overall. Plz help.
