    I think this years grade boundary will be above 60 but I doubt it will be higher than last years even though it was easier.

    Yes I agree, I don't think it can be higher than less years (2015) grade boundaries lol, it was like 63 for an A and 58 for a B.

    Anyone doing FP1 on Friday?
    Yup, this year in C1 I always get a low A in papers whilst with the other modules I get high As. Hoping the FP1 paper will be easy.

    I think I got something like X^2 + X -5 or something but that could be wrong, however the graph did intersect Y axis at -5 so I'm presuming mine is correct ??

    I got that too!!
    Really disappointed by how that exam went for me, I'm resitting all of AS maths (C1, C2 and D1) and I was meant to get an A in all 3 exams, I don't think I've got more that 55/72 Need to work my socks off now for my other exams to get a B average (need to recalculate realistic minimum UMS in each exam to get a B. Before it was >80 for C1, C2, D1 and M1 and around 50 for C3 and C4... might need to make that more like 60-70 UMS C3 and C4)
    Any other resisters think that was better than last years exam?

    How did everyone find it? I thought it was an average paper, not impossible but had to think about some things and go back to correct silly mistakes! What did everyone do for the proof? I worked out the gradient of both lines and showed they were perpendicular
    There wasn't a proof question?

    I think he didn't do MEI , I think he just did OCR C1.

    I'm dissapointed too. I was relying on getting full marks in this paper resit too. I'm resitting core 1 and 2. I got a C at AS but I need a B overall to meet my conditions to study midwifery at uni in September. I'm really worrying because core 1 is the easiest exam and I genuinely think I got like 64/65 in this paper which is only a few more marks than I got last year. Wishing you the best of luck for your future exams and drop me a message if you'd like any help studying for core 2, d1, core 3 or 4 as I'm also doing all these haha

    Would i lose a mark for not putting the [y=] in y = x^2 + x - 5 and just writing x^2 + x - 5 for the question "find the equation of the translated curve" as technically what i wrote was an expression. I know you lose the mark in FP1 but idk about C1.

    note: i checked two past papers and found two occasions where similar questions have been asked. in one you lost a mark for omitting [y=] and in the other one it was condoned.

    the answers are correct except for Q11)i) and ii) but the order and structure of all the questions are confused and mixed up.

    I really need good marks in maths... I got a U last year (total of 80 UMS) and I am having to resit all my AS exams across all my A2 subjects because the only class I took seriously was Physics... yet I need an A in that to counteract the fact I won't be able to get a B in chemistry so I'm trying to get a C in that instead... A lot of stress, a lot of exams. 1 down, 13 more to go

    If you put that you'll lose the mark not because you forgot to put y= but because it was -5 at the end not +5
