    Please let us know tomorrow how you got on (this is to all those TSR users that I have conversed with over the last year).
    FWIW, I ended up with A's in FP2/FP3/S3 which were the only modules I sat in June. Rather annoyed about FP3, was sure I had 75/75 but got 97 UMS, seems to have happened to a few of my friends in other modules as well.

    BTW, whilst I'm here - do you have any idea what this means: Name:  14017638_10153895329995773_718080868_n.jpg

    It repeats further down on the sheet, except with the codes XFM01 and XMA01. I'm rather concerned, but Track confirms I'm in, so the uni's should have received my results properly?

    To be fair 79 ums was 67/75 right? Not unfeasible that you could lose that much in method marks is it?

    I dont know where i could have gone wrong though I remember i was pretty much looking through the unofficial mark scheme seeing how everything was pretty much right. so confused because most of the questions required integration and i'm certain I checked them on my calculator to see if my result was the same.

    I had spent like 2 weeks going through vectors because of how much I couldn't comprehend them and now i suffer like this I thought it would be much higher really wanted the A* in further maths... Got 97 in m2, 82 in fp2 and 79 in fp3 i'm hoping fp3 and fp2 go up enough for 90% average

    Did anyone else get lower than expected UMS on FP2? I got my script back and it turns out they gave me 0 for the differential equation question (the second part) because I used the STEP method for solving the integral.

    What method is this?

    the integral was e^x sinx.

    you use parts twice and then rearrange and solve in terms of the original integral.

    I used the same method and got 98% for FP2, so I am assuming they didn't give me 0 marks.

    I wonder if there is a way to make sure they don't make the same mistake again.

    That is the method used in the mark scheme. However the integrating factor was e^(2x). Missing out that 2 would be expensive.

    Yeah I know it was e^2x, I was just outlining the method.
