    Flipping heck that's good. You must have some crazy UMS scores

    I haven't started M5 revision yet, forgot a lot of the dynamics stuff -.-

    Is there an M5 thread?
    I meant "I've got a lot of exams this month", not "I've already got good AS marks".

    M5 thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...3678893&page=7 send help.

    67ish/75. What UMS do you guys reckon this could be? Didn't quite get a value for tan in Q1 and didn't quite get the last parts of 4 and 5.

    67 is the average mark needed for an A*, so it'll probably be close to 90 UMS.

    Sounds like we lost marks in the same places.

    Cheers. Yeah should get a few method marks hopefully. Got 100 in M3 and have 94 in M2 from last year so should be on for a star now.

    I’m going through questions 1 and 2, both of which I got wrong, to try to get an idea of how many marks I lost. Can anyone remember the masses of the two particles in question 1?

    From what I’ve read here, I realise it probably wasn’t a particularly hard paper, although I’m not feeling too confident.

    I remember m and 4m but I'm not sure.

    Thanks. I’ll play around with them and see if I can get something to work. I think I got 1/5 as my final answer... hopefully I just missed out the root at the end and not something more serious further back.

    M and 4m direction turned through by 90 .

    Thanks. I think fortunately it was a silly slip near the end. Can’t believe I didn’t spot the nice angle the particle makes with the LoC as it moves away - I did it in in terms of cos(90+𝜶) and sin(90+𝜶) instead!

    For the edexcel further maths A2 what is required for an A*. I am doing M2, M3, M4, S2, FP1, FP2, FP3. Do you have to get an average of over 90% in your best 3 A2 modules and must this include either FP2 or FP3 or could it just be M2 M3 and M4 for example??

    Can just be M2, M3 and M4 I believe! I did M2 last year for AS further mathematics and got 96% does anyone know if this will definitely still go towards the A* or is it cashed in for the AS? (Not entirely sure how the system works)

    The tables in the specification subtly imply that you do need FP2/3, but I’m pretty sure you don’t. I think M2/3/4 should be fine.

    I think it’ll depend on whether your school cashed it in last year and, if they did, whether they’re planning on re-certificating this year.

    Yeah you need to do either FP2 or FP3 but they don't have to contribute to the three best for the A*

    Terrible. I didn't get the final answer for Q1, and completely messed up half of Q4 and Q5. I might get a lot of method marks, but I won't know until I see the questions again.

    Honestly, I don't think it was a particularly hard exam, I just wasn't awake.
    i had precisely the same problem as you when i finished that exam i hope i can pick up some method marks. but there should have been a resisted motion question but oh well it's all done now
