# Mega A Level Maths Thread MK II watch

1. Missing out on 100 ums because you forget to sub-in the minimum point to find the y-cordinate *facepalms*

that's a load of bull, you're better than I am, I mean who guided me through those integration step questions?

Just do the paper and work on harder bits!
But you're in Year 11! I wouldn't have been at your level when I was in year 11! And yeah but I could only do that as I had done the questions myself before, otherwise I would've been pretty useless.

Thanks thats what I'll most likely do, probably get through 2-3 tonight to get me back into the swing of it

I knowww it's so frustrating I'm not that type of bloke, who goes after full/ridiculous UMS but I'm loving AS Maths, I got 100 in C1, and will probably end up with 99's in C2 and S1 due to the SILLIEST mistakes. Not subbing in a number for C2 and saying 1 x 1 = 2 in S1. It is kinda funny though lol

Lucky!

That's a shame as Maths is too cool to stop
10. Could someone do this question for me and compare with my answer?

I used the substitution , although there was no specific way it was meant to be done.

298/300 is f*cking awesome

Wish I can do that

I feel lost with no more maths exams, only subject I don't mind revising!
Got a difficult chemistry exam now
The fact that it's mostly statistics. Sounds quite boring tbh

I had alarm bells ringing during that question! Needless to say that's not a mistake I would ever make again! I would not be able to endure another endless wave of constant jeering from my teacher or fellow classmates

Sorry to bust your bubble, I was also hoping to get 99 but I lost 2 marks for the y-coordinate . There's a method mark for attempt in plugging in your x value into the solution, and an accuracy mark for getting the correct y-coordinate. 98 is still pretty good!

From a very quick attempt I get .

(As an addition, this differentiates to the correct integral upon checking so I'm fairly sure it's correct.)

Ahh, I'm unsure because of the endless exams/working/studying that last for years and years

Yeah and its not really proper maths if you get me :P

Seems a rather awkward way to do it

What if 73/75 is 99 UMS?

Yeah like I said I'm not a UMS scavenger type so 98 is brilliant I would take anything above 90 tbh. But when it gets close to a 100, and you lose a mark for something like that, then it's just
