    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?

    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

    90 UMS from D2 last year

    -About 67/75 in FP2
    -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

    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.

    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.
