# AQA FP1 Further Pure 1 17th May 2013 Official Thread watch

1. (Original post by Math12345)
Hurrah :-)
2. I got that too. Did anyone think that was the hardest FP1 paper out of all the May/June exams?

I thought it was quite hard. Just thought aswell - there were no conics questions at all! I spent ages getting my head round that!

Without doubt, so far none of my maths exams have been "nice" papers. FML
5. (Original post by Vernish)
Ah, yes, that would make sense - I think I got -81x too. And perhaps 146?
yeah thats right. do u think I'll get the mark for having a multiple
6. I feel as though everything I attempted I got right (apart from 1 mark on the first matrix question). So I'm looking at around 55/75 unfortunately (wanted an A). Got D1 next Friday and then S2B in June. Need that A in Further Maths AS!
7. k=-27?

yup i found this one a lot harder than the past papers
11. I got something like 8x^2 + 27x - 70 = 0 for the alpha and beta question How many marks will i lose? Think I got the sum correct just not the products

Great! I got that too, unfortunately I forgot if I put -146 or 146 since I was rushing the paper due to lack of time.

Yes.

this was definitely a very hard paper, hopefully the boundaries will be better than jan 2013.
Hopefully.

What are your other maths grades like? Just wondering so I can compare the difficulty of FP1, thanks!

What did everyone else get for the complex number question, finding the value of z?
14. Yeah guys I just attempted the roots question again- the correct solution is 24x^2+81x-146=0 I made the silliest of mistakes fml

i got y=2/3 and x=1/3
16. How many marks was the summation question?

17. Also how do you do the (z-2)* question?

Yes.

I already have an A in Maths A-Level (480+ UMS) but I still need an A in Further Maths AS so ideally I need A's in FP1, D1 and S2B. So far I have 75/100 in FP1 (and judging from today's paper not sure I've improved it - I think I got around a 55/75 today). So I need to ace D1 (it's possible) which leaves me needing a borderline A in S2B!

YES, I feel so much better about my FP1 exam, even though it was the HARDEST mathematics exam paper I have done ever since leaving my mother's womb.
20. What did you guys get for the last question's stationary point? I got (1,0) for the stationary point. I definitely think this exam was much harder than all the others. I really hope the grade boundaries are low...
