1. I think so few people took this exam yesterday there's still not a thread about it so just wondering how people found it. 1. iii with the unit vector was a curveball for sure and the last question was tough but overall I found it in line with the other M2 exams. Am I the only person that took the exponential e on the last question the change the subject of the formula?
2. Hello. I also done M2 last Thursday. Not sure why you think unit vector was a curve ball, it had come up before at different times and I think I remember doing it in C4. The last question was fairly standard but I just think the substitution of the V and g or k whatever it was would have caught many out, including myself. How did you find the rest of the paper? Did you do FP3?

Might just be because I've at AS level. M3 and FP1 next.

Yeah that is what i ddd for the final question. The only thing i coudlnt do actually was the unit vector completely forgot how to do it

Ah, my apologies then, I did C1-4/M1/S1 last year and FP1-3/M2-4 this year. How do you manage the aspects of M2/3 that use things from C3/4 such as differential equations or some of the integration?

Ah ok, so which modules do you do for AS Further then? M2/FP1 and what else, M3? No, I done all of my A Level last year and our C4 paper was easy I thought! How did you find C4 today? Heard it was challenging in parts.
9. anyone know what grade boundaries tend to be for m2?
10. Did anyone do F3?

Yes, I did FP3. What did you think of it? I thought some of it was impossible, with some of it being fine, like the reduction formulae and the like. Some parts were very difficult however. My class all thought the same. My teacher was at a CCEA conference on Monday and they told him they made it deliberately like that. What about you and your class?
