# Edexcel C2 20th May 2015 *Official Thread* watch

1. For question 3...
Why is it not
f(x) = (2x+1) (3x+12) (x-4)
2. Ok I just seen the paper and looking back it does not seem hard if I was not panicked/pressured and I was in a comfortable setting I could have easily done better.. I don't know what happened in that exam honestly, I have made mistakes in every question and have not got a single answer correct apart from say 4 which is horrendous and I missed that entire page on the trig questions and a couple more.. so i'm defo looking at a U grade for C2 i've never felt this bad in my entire life
Will uni's know of our AS grades? Also i'm not taking maths to A2 but will I still be able to retake c2 to get a better AS grade overall or not?

64/75 c1 53/75 c2...

( Best Case Scenario )
70ums c2
90ums c1
so 80 ums needed in M1

Worst Case Scenario (Taking Jan 2013 boundaries for c2)
C2- 64 ums
C1 - 80ums
therefore 96 in m1

You can factor out a 3 so (3x + 12) = 3(x + 4)
7. Scraping an A again. Always happens in Maths. Grade boundaries will probably be high because Edexcel is Edexcel and A2 students inflating boundaries. Probably 64 for an A with my luck and I'll barely get over 80 UMS.

Damn!! Would I lose a mark for that?

**** off
16. B and a C so far :/ Have to get an A in S1 then, which is very doable.

Lost really stupid marks in both, really stupid.

Because you can simplify the middle bracket by dividing by 3
18. According to this stuff,

C1 - 70/75
C2 - 71/75

19. Fck off man... 60/75 in c1 and 62/75 in c2. Safe to say that I can kiss goodbye to A grade in maths with s1 likely to be a monster of a paper...
20. Will I get any marks for using the identity sin^2x=1-cos^2x in question 8)ii)a?
