1. 90 UMS already in S2 (Sat last year)
71-72 raw marks for FP2
68 Marks for M2
(67-68 for FP3, believe the other 3 will get higher UMS)

Enough for A* do you think?
2. Home many marks were the last two whole questions?

for fp2 if you got 71 you probs got 90 ums since grade boudaries dont get any higher....i didn't sit m2 so i don't what the paper is like, realistically boundaries for fp3 will be 69/70 so depends on grade boundaries my friend

I'd say so. That's a solid mark on FP2 and just 90 UMS on M2. FP3 probably will go to your AS modules
5. 90 UMS from D2 last year

-75/75 in FP3
-About 64/75 in M2 but I guess that doesn't matter now since that's probably an A* secured already
6. Guys if i lost about 6-8 marks in F3 IAL is there a chance of A star? Last years A* was 60/75 ans i found them pretty equal
7. How did you find the ial F3 paper
8. Guys will this be enough for an A in Further maths:

FP1- 71 marks
FP2 - 57 marks
FP3 - 60 marks
S1 - 81 ums
S2 - 78 ums
M2 - 69 marks
9. is there an unofficial ms or a model answers thing. or anybody who has posted their answers????

Happy-ish? The exam was pretty easy tbh, and I reckon I've got an A*, but I'm just not sure whether I have enough for an A* overall.

Mistakes, how many marks would I lose?
- Copied down the matrix in question 1 wrong, leading to incorrect values of k. Assuming working was right.
- Threw a minus in the arcothx question right at the end, again I think the rest of the working was right.
- Multiplied the non-arcothx term by 4 aswell rather than just the 1-x^2, lead to me getting k as 8. Assume dy/dx and d^2y/dx^2 were right.

I'm guessing 2, 1 and 2 respectively (not sure how many that third one was). So would 70/75 be enough teamed with 88 UMS from S2 (last year) and 66-68/75 in FP2 to get an A* overall? I have the UMS required probably.
Could someone answer please. Really want an A* but I'm worried I've either just missed it or just scraped it.

Yeah, somewhere in the high 30s/40s (pagewise) someone posted their answers
12. How do you 8a?
13. How do you do 8a?
14. if I didn't put +c on any of my indefinite integrals will I lose marks????

Just add it up and see if it equals 480
16. Can somebody please tell me (if you know/remember) what the given equations of the planes were in Question 8? (I am not looking for the last answer I am looking for the actual question)
17. (Original post by Armpits)

yeah but roughly what will the ums be on all the modules i stated marks, do you have any idea?
18. no one gonna hook us up with an unofficial mark scheme?
19. (Original post by MarocMan)
Yeahh dw that'll be like 77/78UMS I think so u definitely hit that A grade even if u dropped 2marks more worst case scenario, well done and good luck on results day. I know I ****ed up FP2 real bad so A* is out the window, I did so badly that the fact I got A*A* in m3 and fp3 means nothing to the A* in further maths loool
What grades do you need for uni ?

It is available 24 hours after the exam, so you should expect it in 14 hours or so.
