    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!

    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!

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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...
