# Edexcel AS/A2 Mathematics M2 - 17th June 2016 - Official Thread watch

1. (Original post by Reda2)
Guys, I know I have 240 UMS in AS Maths, if I got a E on this M2 exam, so I will have total UMS = 240 + 40 = 280 UMS. What do I have to get in C3 and C4 to get A overall or B?
100 UMS in both c3 and c4
Cause you need 480/600 to get an A
2. Personally I think the paper looked weird af but was alright if you applied your mechanics. I can never do centre of mass questions anyways so I probably got that wrong (oh well). Other than that the paper was super non-standard with a lot of weird questions. Also anyone who did FP2 will understand that p,q and r and no longer part of my alphabet as they are disgusting letters and should be killed with fire.
3. Can someone help?

For 4a) I got 0.8299 or whatever it was and then rounded it wrong somehow to write 0.823. Will I lose the A1 mark or will they see the answer as 0.8299 and look no further?

Answers to edexcel m2 uk paper
1 a) 4ms-2 b) 11/3
2) P =4900 R = 784 d= 53.1
3) c= 10/3
4) x =0.83m, angle 113.6
5) a) friction = (5gdsinthetacostheta)/4
Reaction= (5g/4)(4-dcos^2theta)
b) d = 2.56m
6)a) lambda = 30/7 b) speed 10.4 angle 73.6
7) a) Va = 3u/20 Vb = 21u/10 b) e=1/14 c) no since moving at same speed in same direction
agree with all appart from 4. i got 0.495 and 122 degrees i think but centre of masses are my weakest point

Please post ur workings to see if i got them. Im so worried

73.3 or 73.6 please do the calc again it was ->>>>>3ms and 10 down so arctan 10/3

No, don't worry! That was seriously scary, I skipped nearly all the questions at first.

Thanks, that's reassuring 😃

sadly i got the same and its wrong they wanted it from 2 to 3 sec not 0 to 3
I did the same, how many marks do u think we would lose out of 5? I reckon we could be given at least 2 - for integrating currently and finding the value at t=3?

13. Oops, I expressed the angle as a bearing so I did '73+90=163 as a bearing'.
14. This paper was really bad. had to skip questions 4 and 7 completely!

It was 73.3 degrees.

hope so maybe 1-2 most likely 1

ms normally says something like integrated by itself or between something then it goes on to say subbed in 3 etc idk hopefully 2 but 1 most likely

I feel you! I ****ed that up on fp2 but when I saw them today I was like "not today mofos! I got this" 😂

19. Am I the only one who got 0.28m for the centre of mass. Also if this is wrong but I did the right method for the angle can I get all four follow through marks? My angle was 128 btw.
20. Welp, I said gravity acted sideways, messed up all of Q6 for me.
Q4 I messed up my COM ending with me getting 70 degrees as overall angle.
Q1 last part I said between 3 and 4 not 2 and 3.
Apart from that it went OK.
