# AQA A2 Mathematics MPC3 Core 3 - Wednesday 15th June 2016 [Official Thread] watch

55 a*
50 a
45 b
It was difficult but there is no way an A* will be 55. I reckon 60 minimum (probably more like 61 or 62...)

I wanted to give you rep... but apparently I've given you too much.... so have a comment.
On to C4

If you're feeling down about how the exam went: forget about it and move onto C4. Maybe AQA will be nice and give an easy C4 paper to make up for the difficult C3 one... (or not, knowing AQA)

Hi. Being an offer holder of Oxford does not signify anything if you unable to find such an exam straight forward provided the fact you are predicted an A*. That said, it appears evident you were not prepared whasoever by the looks of it. Even worse, if you left questions blank, sorry to say you do not deserve to be accepted by Oxford.
stop being such a pablo... geez
3. I am an A* student that has got 90-100 UMS on pretty much every c3 past paper. I found this paper incredibly difficult and failed to even attempt a number of questions, surely this shows that this paper was simply unfair on those trying to get the grade they need for university.

Did anyone get gg(x)=x^4?
I did, but that's wrong because g(x) should have been 1/x not 1/x^2

If this was an attempt to approximate 3.1415, then it should've been 3.142.
You ******* if you found it so easy why not make a mark scheme instead of talking ****
6. Volume one was pi(2-2ln3-(ln3)^2) because it was -1--3.

It was a very hard paper and I've been getting A*'s. The same thing happened with Physics (June 2014 an A* was 61, June 2015- an A* was 54) Don't worry guys, the boundaries will come down by about 5/6 marks.

What would 54 be do you think?

The truth is that people won't all get 30 marks. Remember, you are competiting with private school students, and people who find maths naturally easy, like me.
Why are you not dead yet you ****ing bullied ****

Look, AQA will not drastically change the grade boundaries. If it was that hard, it wouldn't have been chosen for this year's paper. What they are trying to do, is stop thousands of student who simply do past papers and get A*s, without knowing the actual content. If this is one of you, you do not deserve to pass. The question about range, merely required simple mathematical ingenuity. Looking beyond this, the content was nothing but fundamental C3 AQA Maths knowledge.
Suck my ****, Pablo. Seriously, suck my ****ing **** with your geometrical impressionist mouth, you ****ing ******.

100 UMS - 70 (maybe 69)
A* - 62
A - 55
B - 51
C - 46
D - 41
E - 36

They won't go down 5/6 marks. Everyone thinks their C3 paper was difficult (look at last years thread). I found it tricky but not 5/6 marks lower tricky, that is a huge difference and they simply won't move them that low

There has been Core 4 papers with A*s in the 50s. I don't think suggesting 55 for an A* is that unreasonable, especially given the best mathematicians at my school said it was 'solid'. There have been some Core 3 past papers where an A* is only about 63, and this was so much harder than any past paper.
20. omgggggg i didn't put x^-2 on the integration one, i put x^2 ffs
