Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

It was 10.4 down.
no it was 10 in vertically 3 across and 10.4 diagonally (which is what you were looking for)
2. (Original post by Palette)
Oops, I expressed the angle as a bearing so I did '73+90=163 as a bearing'.
If you said it was a bearing or from the vertical that shouldn't be a problem. It asked for the direction.
3. Hey guys, i think i got full mark ,which is good after that disaster fp2 paper .But for the angle between center of mass and dc, there is 2 angle right, 66.4 and 113.6 ? Since i got 66.4.
I draw the thing and showed which angle i calculated.
4. What will be the UMS needed for an A and a B for this paper?
5. Was anyone else thrown of by the wording in 1B i knew it was weird but couldnt figure out why
6. (Original post by NinjaOtter)
Welp, I said gravity acted sideways, messed up all of Q6 for me.
Q4 I messed up my COM ending with me getting 70 degrees as overall angle.
Q1 last part I said between 3 and 4 not 2 and 3.
Apart from that it went OK.

Am I the only one who got 0.28m for the centre of mass. Also if this is wrong but I did the right method for the angle can I get all four follow through marks? My angle was 128 btw.

I feel you! I ****ed that up on fp2 but when I saw them today I was like "not today mofos! I got this" 😂
(Original post by Mattematics)
It was 73.3 degrees.

This paper was really bad. had to skip questions 4 and 7 completely!
Can anyone remember the questions
7. (Original post by Reda2)
Guys, I know I have 240 UMS in AS Maths, if I got a E on this M2 exam, so I will have total UMS = 240 + 40 = 280 UMS. What do I have to get in C3 and C4 to get A overall or B?
You would need 70
8. Answers for the ial m2 not uk that is plzzz?

9. Can anyone explain how they got such big angles for the angle between AD and the vertical in the COM question? I don't understand how you can get an angle bigger than 90 degrees?
10. What did people get for the distance travelled in question 1?

Please be honest so we can get a clear indicator of what the grade boundaries could be. Send to as many people as you can who have done this exam
thanks
12. FML seen so many different answers on this thread for the same q's - now I have no idea how I've done.

So many random decimals and no show thats so it was hard to know where you were going!
13. To be honest, for me the paper was alright. I got full mark i think, which is lucky since i did so badly in fp2 .

I did the same stupid mistake in Q1... How many marks out of 5 do you think we'll get?

I'm pretty sure that's right, it was distance travelled in the 3rd second, therefore 3-4 seconds got 23/3
17. how many marks do you think i'll lose for b and c if i got lambda wrong in 6a but then did the right method onwards?

Yeah I got this too - you're right
19. 2 polls with similar results will increase the reliability of the final conclusion on grade boundaries no?

The third second would be from 2 to 3
