    What was your hardest A-level exam (A2 or AS)?



    C3/C4. I find mental maths easy and all simple maths had always been easy. I got to C3/C4 and dropped from 90% to 60.

    It was just too much "Learn all of these weird intergration rules and trig identities" for me.

    FP2 and FP3 were more difficult than past years

    Edexcel FP2 Mathematics.

    Question 6 was ambiguous, and cost me 10 marks a a result of me attempting to answer what the question actually asked me to do, and not answered the question based on the expectations I have from similar questions I answered during the revision period (I checked that I am right about this using Arsey's mark schemes).

    I did better during FP3, but unfortunately I was just getting over a headcold that day and was dosed up on Paracetomol, but I was dizzy as hell

    Biology killed me. So badly :erm:
    Someone in my exam room was doing Biology, and at the end of the time, he said to the invigilator that he "spent 90 minutes starting at the page and did not answer a single question", before leaving very quickly.

    There's doing badly, and then there's this.

    It's unfortunate that you lost all ten marks! I agree though, it was ambiguous and a very odd question.

    What raw mark are you hoping for on FP3?

    Indeed! :sadnod:

    FP2 was OKish for me until I got to the transformations question (and I made a couple of stupid errors elsewhere). I couldn't do the first easy part for some reason (didn't read that y = x :facepalm:) but I knew how to do the second, harder part as I practised those types of questions...so I just said "If I had an answer to part a), I'd do..." :teehee:

    And let's not even talk about FP3, worst paper I've ever done :facepalm:

    aha I managed to scrape myself through part a, then (with a minute left) separate into real and imaginary before running out of ideas - hopefully should get me 7 out of 10 available :P

    FP3 was really tough, I wouldn't worry about it. I was consistently getting 70+ on past papers, but I'd snap your hand off if you offered me 65 right now!

    Probably G481/2 for what it was. Hopefully will be my best subject though.
