What UMS did you get in maths? Watch

1. (Original post by Pterodactyl)
FP4 is almost exclusively matrices and vectors so if you enjoy those topics and want to go relatively in depth with them then it's a very enjoyable module. In recent years there have been some tougher papers (not the one I sat ). Conceptually it is tougher than C4 but C4 is more diverse so could be seen as more awkward to perfect. I suggest you do it, it's not too taxing.
Thanks very much for your advice, I'll give it a go!

You need 90% in Core 3 and Core 4, so you were 16 marks off in Core 4

11*

Got 95 in Core 3

Either way, it's in the past now
3. C1: 100
C2: 100
C3: 96
C4: 97
FP1: 89
FP2: 83
S1: 90
S2: 100
S3: 83
M1: 93
M2: 87
D1: 45 ()

Slacked off during the last exam session tbh as I was safe and dry [had already got the A* and needed not that high marks for A* in FM].

Did all these 2-3 years ago, was a good memory test! Can't believe I still remember all my exact scores LOOOL.

The funny thing is that I got an A for GCSE maths and was barely allowed on to do FM at sixth form. That really motivated me to push on and succeed. Never though in a million years before I started my A-levels that I'd get anywhere near those grades.
4. C1 - 88
C2 - 67
S1 - 86

241/300

I didn't revise for any of them so I'm fairly happy with how they turned out. Gonna step up my game this year and hopefully get an A* overall.

Awesome scores. May I ask what you found hardest in each module, C1-4 and M1/M2 (the ones I'll be self-teaching!)?

11. Is this for Further Maths too?

C1 - 95
C2 - 100
S1 - 88
FP1 - 80
FP2 - 54
D1 - 86

Shame about FP2. Didn't realise I needed C3-C4 for it, so I forgot the chain rule in the exam

13. C1: 94
M1: 95
C2: 82 (1 question screwed me over).

That was the same result I got, but I didn't know how to evaluate it at x=pi/2 or x=0, because tan(pi/2)->infinity, and the denominator of the fraction is 0 at x=0. Will take a look at it tomorrow, could maybe expand it as a taylor series or l'hopital's rule or something to get around that.

And thank you
15. average 89% in maths and f maths

Impressive- are you doing FM next year or Uni?
Old thread but oh well!

I want to know because I'm thinking of doing a maths degree but I don't want to be horribly out of my depth. Please tell me what grade you got at A2 and overall UMS (if you can't remember, then just a rough number). Could you also put which university you go to

Could you also put what the degree name is. So if it's straight maths or maths and economics, or financial mathematics etc.

Posting would be a massive, massive help for me, so please do so

Thanks very much to anyone who can help!
A*s overall in both maths and further, I'm not sure exactly how it was split but out of my 12 best modules (for some reason our college made us do 13) I got 1140/1200

C1 - 100
C2 - 100
C3 - 98
C4 - 94

M1 - 89
D1 - 94
S1 - 93
M2 - 97
S2 - 93

FP1 - 89
FP2 - 93
FP3 - 100
FP4 - 80 (don't know what happened here)

STEP I - 2 (close to the boundary though)

I'm doing Maths and Physics at Warwick, but thinking of switching to straight maths at the end of first year (undecided, we'll see how it goes). The thing with maths is, for every module (including fp4) I did at least one past paper where I got 100%, it ended up just being a bit of luck on the day with whether I made mistakes or not...must have totally messed up something in fp4 though!
