# AQA A2 Mathematics MPC3 Core 3 - Wednesday 15th June 2016 [Official Thread] Watch

I'm pretty sure there were two solutions to the equation, both negative, (like -21 and -88 or something like that)
Yeah, that's what I'm saying is wrong. There is one solution (-21). The other solution does make the cosine -5/13 like it should be but has the wrong sine. Put it in your calculator, the solution -88 gives -0.2, not -5.
damn, thats pretty sneaky
Especially considering it said find all solutions.
3. What would 40/75 in c3 be do you think?

That is full UMS i reckon
A*-1
A-0
B- -1
C- -2
D- -3
E- -4
U- -75

After all since AQA like adding all that bs why not jus give grade boundaries with negative raw marks?

I'd usually laugh but after experiencing that paper for myself I can safely that that 15 is an admirable performance.
9. I know this is super late, but I reckon I got 40/75 - can anyone guess what UMS this would be? Was aiming for 90 ofc but would be happy with 70 after that tbh
10. do people think 50/75 would be enough for a B?

52 was the mark for a B last year, and with the difficulty of this paper I reckon 50/75 should be a B if not very close to a B.
12. What would 37 marks be

What would 37 marks be
Probably 40-45 UMS

Probably 40-45 UMS
Any idea when AQA's grade boundaries will be released?
15. bruh Im pissed. I worked so hard for this telling myself a B at AS is nothing. So I grinded from the day flipping one. Id say I couldve done travelled the world with the time i spent studying c3.

I rolled in to the exam hall having not done a single past paper the night before thinking I'll do well. I was so butthurt I felt like calling the police for abuse. I know i've got a U but its so out of nowhere. They should gave some warning at least.

I just cant take it anymore. I need help
16. God bless AQA
17. Last year 47 for a C. This year 47 for an A.
18. 53 for an A*. Bloody hell I am over the moon

God bless AQA
I'm really pissed off about fp4 and fp3, they are so high. M2 and fp2 not bad though.
If I manage an A* in FM i would have to be really scraping it.

same position.
FP2 M2 and FP4 might make A* for me. Let's forget about M3 and FP3 lol.
