    I got 92 on this, but only 87 on C3 which means I missed out on an A* by one mark I'll probably end up resitting C3 next year

    The grade boundaries were ridiculously low this year...the questions were relatively standard!

    If I remember the general feedback correctly (although no report has been release yet of course). The pyramid vectors question proved a lot of trouble as you needed some insight to figure out the volume at the end + the angle was one of those numbers that doesn't look "right" which worried many people. Also a minority in my school seemed to know what "inversely proportional" meant on the differential equation question.

    Also the first vector question on the paper was expressed slighty differently which confused some people. And many struggled with the algebraic manipulation needed on the last question with the binomial expansion.

    This was just what I remember people from my school saying, but I personally thought it was more demanding than normal so I expected a low boundary like what happened.

    I got much higher than I thought I did. So in that respect, my grade was very very weird :erm:

    Yeahhh!!! I got a MUCH higher grade than I expected lol.

    Yea I totally thought I ballsed it up, didn't get the pyramid, two integration questions and that last binomial one was probably wrong (at least I thought so), then I see I got 85 ums which really shocked me.

    I got 85 UMS, like the person above
    I have no idea how it happened, it's just annoying now that I was close to the A*, I thought I'd be miles off :erm:

    I got 100 UMS but it wasn't a 72/72 for sure since I know I made a few errors

    What about you?

    This is probably a very obvious question but can anyone help me with part 10ii?

    Thank you I am very confused

    just did this as a mock and now feel awful about my chances of scraping an A this summer

    Do note the grade boundaries were low for us because it was a hard paper, so comparing your raw mark to the grade boundaries may boost your spirits a bit. (55 for an A, 49 for a B as reference)

    The paper was very tough though, the vectors questions were a lot harder than normal, and the differential equation question required you to know what certain terms meant. Plus they actually tested understanding on the binomial expansion properly on that last question which is a rarity.

    You'll be fine just keep working on the areas you are weaker on, as with these exams they tend to examine virtually everything one way or another
