My apologies if that comment game across as dick-ish. I have edited my original post.
Hope you do well
Theres no way it'll be 65 for an a*, that's mental. I'd say 68/69
In June 2012 it was 64 for an A* and the papers are pretty similar so it is possible. 🙄💁🏽
3. Can some one make in official mark schme
4. (Original post by ombtom)
This should give some indication of grade boundaries.

Raw marks required for an A and A* since 2009:
Jan 2009: 63
Jun 2009: 62
Jan 2010: 53
Jun 2010: 61 (68 A*)
Jan 2011: 62 (68 A*)
Jun 2011: 68 (71 A*)
Jan 2012: 68 (71 A*)
Jun 2012: 57 (64 A*)
Jan 2013: 64 (69 A*)
Jun 2013: 58 (65 A*) (01), 55 (62 A*) (01R)
Jun 2014: 64 (69 A*) (01), 63 (69 A*) (01R)
Jun 2015: 64 (69 A*)

Average: 61.6 (67.7 A*)
Jan 2004 was 50 marks for 80ums
5. Not anywhere as easy as last year's paper IMO. But easier than some of the more recent IALs. I reckon about 68/67 for an A* 62/63 for an A

We can dream.

I reckon it'll be 66 for 90 UMS, maybe 67.

66 or 67 for 90 UMS.
And it depends on what you did.
Thanks mate,
well for 1b) I intergrated with limits of 3 to 0 and got 15m
But I realised it was 3-2 Question was out of 5
And for the power question I only used wd against friction= loss of ke-gain in mgh
got the wrong answer Question was out of 4?

Hopefully. I spent the first 45 mins skipping through questions like a complete moron and did everything in the second half of the time....Made such stupid mistakes tbh and the impulse question oh dear... My M2 was your M3 pole question. I literally just froze knowing I had to catch up cause of my tragic performance in fp2 🙄😂
I feel exactly the same way

wd against friction = loss of ke - gain in mgh is correct though?

Yes but I think i forgot to put down the weight component
11. (Original post by mani119)
Yes but I think i forgot to put down the weight component
Ah I see, it was 4 marks so I reckon you'll get 2

Except from by tragic performance I really mean tragic performance like 40ums... So was hoping for 95-100 in m2 but sadly that's not gonna happen. Would be a miracle if I scraped a mere 90... Will have to get like 100 in s2 to meet my conditional offers... 😓

Thanks do you think ill get 2/5 or 3/5 for 1b) ?
14. (Original post by mani119)

2 maybe 1
15. How many marks will i get for 1b) for integrating between 0 and 3 and getting 15m as my final answer?
16. What ums do you guys think 30/75 will be? Got 90 ums in C1 and C2 last year and 80 in M1
17. (Original post by ombtom)
We can dream.
How many raw marks are you expecting? + btw do you know whether they are equally as strict about the number of sf in m3? Cause then my grade might be not as good as I thought it would be... 🙄
18. Hmm... not sure how I found it. Little bit on the harder side? I ran out of time and couldn't finish question 1 or question 6.

Not sure yet. On question 1 I know I put 3^2 instead of 3^3 into my calculator so that's one mark lost.

Need to see the paper again to check how many marks I'll get for Q3 and Q4.

I guess they're equally strict but I'm not sure.

Question 4 I think I got right but question 3 remains a mystery to me and my answer had a root in it (some fraction with the root of 2) so I just assumed 0/6 straight away 🙄

Yeah things like that in Q1 are so annoying... I put the wrong limits (3,4) in 1b and I can't believe how dumb that is... 😠

Oh and the last question it asked for speeds and I gave the velocities. That will be 1 mark gone I guess? Hopefully not more...

M3:
If that's the case then my 100ums can turn into 80, yay
