    I did OD = OA + CB cos C was on line1 so I worked out the coordinates of C and therefore D. Then I worked out DC then found the distance of DC and equaled it to third of distance of AB. I got some weird decimal answer. How many method marks would I get. Im sure i calculated in right
    If you calculated right you should get all marks don't you? If they don't accept decimals (one j component would've been -3.33 or sth) one mark off but I doubt they'd do that because I don't think they said "in exact form"

    I found Core 3, although difficult, easier to do well on than this exam, any ideas what the 90 UMS boundary might be? I didn't get to see what the general feeling about this paper was, easier than previous years?

    Wow really I thought I'd only get 70 for core 4 and 40/50 for core 3. Hoping low boundaries and 100 UMS in D2 and last year's UMS will boost me up. Thanks for your response :-)

    It is a possibility, you'll just have to wait and see for those grade boundaries

    Should really know this but could someone please explain what ums out of 600 do I need for an A* in pure maths?? I know I need to average over 90 ums in c3 and c4 for a* but how about my 2nd applied unit i.e. m2 in my case? Can I get like an E in M2 but get A* overall if c3+4 are over 90%?

    PLEASE HELP

    You need 90% over core 3 and core 4, and then an A overall, so 480UMS, I believe.

    To be honest you need 90 UMS in all three, getting an E in M2 will bring your grade down massivley.

    I suppose that technically that is all you need... :lol:

    The attached photo is from an AQA document which explains how you can get an A*. If you want to look at the whole document, search 'AQA guide to A* at A-Level' or something and you should be able to find it.
