Really happy actually, because it went so well I'm hoping I haven't jinxed it now...

One question I crossed out twice though

And an integration I crossed out and re did. And my initial answer was right
Crossing out doesn't matter provided they can read it
After my English GCSE I wrote an apology to the examiner because of the illegibility of my work

The amount of times I've written "(sorry!)" in the corner of an exam paper before.

I always make such daft mistakes.

Ah, yes, daft mistakes are my specialty.

I'll misspell a word, so I cross it out. Then, I'll proceed to make the exact same error again, and have to cross that again. And then I do the same thing a third time, feel like facedesking

I think I've lost a max of I don't even know... 3-5 marks on methods?

Oh ****!!!!!!!!! I've realised I've lost marks!!!!

One question asked for the shortest distance between circles... I used the distance between the two centres

Didn't subtract the radii... Damn it 100% gone

Didn't you say you thought you'd get full marks?

2 marks lost for that question?

Out of 3...

Damn could have had full UMS easily on that paper

aha! beat you in C2

Unless grade boundaries are like 73/75 = 100 UMS

That'd be funny...

The logs question would have been quite challenging for some, as well as the GP/AP...

Never know

You may still get full UMS. The OCR one that I sat apparently had 68/72 for full UMS - it depends how everyone else found it.

But it was so easy, most people will have done well... I just hope it's 95+ tbh

Sounds like wishful thinking to me

No 100s in AS Maths! That sounds kind of sad hopefully you make up for it with straight 100s for A2

Lol 100 on C3/4 is the way forward - C2 is small potatoes

They are for me

I'd be satisfied with 1,1 unless I get a higher offer from Cambridge, if I get an offer at all... though I'm not sure if they even give out higher offers like S,1. Plus, even if they did, you'd probably still get in with 1,1!
