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

Well at least you now know where you have gone wrong. Now you should hopefully do better in your other exams. I accept your apology and your welcome, I'm happy my advice got into your brain. Now lets hope that the material for your other exams gets into your brain as well. We don't want to see you scraping by on other exam discussions.

I am 17 and this is also my first time, just google search 2015, 2014, 2013 AQA C3 discussions and people like you will be there.
First of all I dont give a **** how old you are your a little **** who I would kick the **** out of.
Searching 2015,2014,2013 shows that AQAs revenue increased tenfold cause you were their number one customer paying for resits. Now stfu and piss of
2. Also for the inequalities question im pretty sure it was something like
$x\leq 6$
$1\leq x\leq 2$
$x\geq 3$
3. Stop giving the ****s attention. They are getting a buzz putting people down.
Realistically this paper was not impossible, but the large number of difficult questions and long mark questions made it the hardest so far in my opinion looking back, thus the grade boundaries WILL be lower.
An A has been 57 on previous hard papers, and this was worse so I'm assuming like 54/53 maybe for an A?

How convenient to have a head of maths who also works for AQA! Strange to think he didn't mention that it takes a board of examiners and staticians months of analysis to come up with grade boundaries? And that many factors come into play other than the difficulty of the questions🤔 Like I don't know maybe the performance of candidates compared to prior performance and predicted grades? And not to mention the percentage of people who achieve over 90%? So strange that he could give you such a definitive answer!
His head of maths is chattin ****.he needs to Lern about sampling and stats. Its not only his school taking the exam, and not everyone was looking at a paper after an exam, coz theres sumut called exam conditions

I am just saying that every year candidates say the same thing:

"omg it was so hard"
"aqa omgggg whyyy"

And now it's happening here.

Is it not delusional to expect A* to be below 60? Is it not delusional to think that everyone has bombed the exam because they did? Is it not delusional to think that because they flopped that the exam board it to blame? Is it not delusional to start a petition about this exam's difficulty.

AQA is innocent, you all are not. It's easy to blame the "evil" exam board just because you were too lazy to revise.

And no, this is an exam DISCUSSION. Not a safe space for failures to circlejerk at how horrible they did and how it wasn't their fault.

Ugh get a grip

PS: The time you spent typing up that joke of message you could have spent REVISING for your other exams. I expect to see you here complaining again post-Core 4
If there wasnt a thing such as hard and easy exams the exam boards wouldnt have adjusted grade boundaries every year. Maybe this years was hard maybe it wasnt. You tell us how you found it, dont speak for others

Is it bad that I found that paper harder than i found all my FP modules last year?
I think that paper was actually harder than FP4 this year, I think I did okay but I don't see how that paper was even close to fair on the people who don't take further maths

I'm not going to post a picture of myself and my friends on a student forum.

Hahaha, you must be having a right laugh!

Hilarious.

I hope you slipped in a couple of these jokes onto your exam script, who knows, perhaps they'll bump your grade up to an E!
Cos u don't have any. How does it feel?

I agree. I also think I benefited from doing FP3 as that exam was also stupidly difficult. Therefore I was expecting the C3 exam to be a lot harder than usual and different compared to previous papers. I think a lot of people today did what I did in FP3 and panicked when it was so different from all the past papers they had done. That just makes it so much worse.
