    Do people think that exam was easier, harder or average compared to last year?

    Also, what would 60 marks get?

    Well, my M1 did not go too well... over-complicated few questions and generally frustrated by the maths exams this year, as I've worked bloody hard for them and I consider myself good at maths. In C1, I got 60 (out of 72), in C2 - 65/72, in M1 - 52/72... not great... Would I still be able to get an A overall in AS, or is it defo a B? I really don't want to resit next year...

    C1 and C2 in my opinion are definitely As. M1 is a low B. That gives you a UMS of 248 which is an A by a comfortable 8 UMS.

    60/72 would be an A in I think almost every past paper so unless the grade boundaries are quite a bit higher than usual it should be an A

    How many marks would I get if I got 97.2 degrees using cosine rule, even though the angle is wrong?

    Do we get to choose if we swap an exam result to go into maths or further maths to get better grades or does OCR do it automatically for us?

    OCR use an algorithm to make sure we have the highest grade in Maths and FM. Then, your highest scoring modules go to Maths. Basically, you can't get a C in maths and A in FM
