    Unfortunately my teachers have continuously tried to force the D down my throat so I just let it happen (no homo)
    Hahahahaha :rofl: At least you're not getting the double D brah

    (Original post by keromedic)
    My college is forcing me to do D1, unfortunately. It looks quite scary tbh. In theory, I'd prefer to do S2 but I already have enough on my plate, with trying to get an A*A*A* minimum next year and all!
    So many teachers out there forcing the D on you. :lol:

    I love history!:drool:

    Are you on my:
    "Multilingual and Polyglot Wannabe Thread MK I" ?

    What languages do you speak/are learning to speak?
    Yes, here is the post I did on it:

    (Original post by Fool In The Rain)
    I'm currently studying French at A level and did Spanish at GCSE level

    Languages I would like to learn:
    -French
    -German
    These 2 are my life goals, to be fluent in at least these 2 would be very nice
    -Italian (a beautiful language with a rich history and I could understand the lyrics in the songs by PFM, Le Orme, Banco, etc )
    -[A language saved for if I decide to live abroad, this being the country's native language] Possible considerations: Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norweigen, Finnish or Icelandic
    -If I don't live abroad, then I would like to go back to Spanish and possibly Portuguese

    I was already panicking from the other questions (I had a negative integral due to arithmetic my working was all fine) and thinfs like that...

    So I panicked like **** on the last question
    :console: I feel your pain. Ah well. Still, it's not the end of the world and you still got a really high score! :woo:

    On a side note, the direction vectors don't have to be equal to be parallel. They just have to be in the same ratio.
    Take that, fish features. :sexface:

    We did muster up one...

    And my answers seemed to agree with others... Places where I could have lost marks because I can't remember my exact numbers:

    Trig (doubt it)
    Differentiation for not showing working (this would piss me off... Eg tan^-1(5x) I just wrote the answer for 3 marks... No chain rule working for all the questions)
    Functions
    One mark for missing out an interval in modulus

    Just the head of Further Maths. He's very authoritative and this year is forcing the D down everyone's throats to increase As.

    Does anyone have experience with A2 AQA Further Maths? I'm really desperate for an A*, but I've heard that the A2 FP units are really hard. I' doing FP2 and FP4, alongside M2.

    I have 12/13! Work work work.

    Ooooh very close! I'm sure you'll nail it next time
    My maths UMS were as thus:
    C2: 98
    FP1: 100
    S1: 92
    D2: 82 - I thought I'd got a lot higher than that!
    I'm thinking of doing 4 A2 next year so I'm not looking forward to all that work.

    And unlucky with D2, but it's very easy to **** up on decision, one simple arithemetical error and you lose lots of marks.
