    I hope you do get an A*, you deserve it
    Thanks! Same to you too and it would be rather nice to be able to say I got an A*, although it would also be nicer to say I got more than one

    Besides maths, what subjects would you say you have a good chance of getting an A* in. Further maths perhaps?

    I'd say Further Maths and maybe even possibly Chemistry as its all going to be based on my results from this June so I might do well enough to get the A* in that too! But I definitely want it in Maths and Further Maths at least

    Same. As you know, I'm repeating the AS maths so the A* doesn't really seemed earned (assuming I get it), whereas in FM it would be
    It's STEP 1, 2 and AEA you also doing right?
    Are you doing those this yr, or next?
    Also, how's the prep going? Is it distracting you from the syllabus maths or does it reinforce it?

    Well, you're repeating the AS Maths, not the A2... it's the A2 that counts for the A*, so I'm sure it's still well "earned"!

    That's fair enough and I've only resat like 2 Maths exams including the C3 I'm doing so its a bit different for me.

    Yeah those are the 3 I'm doing and I'll be sitting them this year in just under a month! I feel the prep is going okayish but could be better if I wasn't incredibly distracted by my Chemistry units!

    I've hardly looked at AEA, but there's always a really big vectors question which might pull me down quite a bit, so I'm probably just gonna try my best in STEP to see if I get in and I feel since I've tackled the style of questions which are asked in them it's made the normal stuff seem very simple and straightforward in comparison, which I feel is a good position to be in as I just have to be careful about stupid mistakes now and not understanding the content correctly.

    Will the AEA vectors be akin to FP3 vectors? Perhaps you could look at that as a resource?

    I'm not sure as they can only ask us about content on C1-4 so that shouldn't happen, however they say a diagram is incredibly helpful and I'm absolutely terrible about drawing the diagrams as I can't understand it in my head, so I wouldn't be able to draw a diagram on it, plus the log questions they ask confuse me with the use of the sigma symbol, I'll probably look back at logs into more detail soon and same about series too.

    STEP I-III next year, I expect.

    I was considering doing STEP I early, but by the time I starting considering this, I was about halfway through March, so I wasn't confident I could get myself up to the level required in time.

    AEA Maths is significantly easier than STEP I, and I would have sat for it this year if I could, but it appears that AEA Maths is not available in my country.

    I see. For you, which would be preferable: an A*A*A offer with 1, 2 in Step 1 and 2 respectively. Or A*AA offer with 1, 1 in Step 2 and 3?

    The former, easily. Did you mean 1, 2 in STEP II and III, for the first one? Either way, I'd take that one.

    I'm far more confident of an A* in Further Maths than two 1s in any two STEP papers :lol:

    My god, that's very last minute then! And I'm hoping come results day we'll both be celebrating our A*'s in Maths!

    Could anyone have a go at this question please?

    i can do part A

    i know how to find the acceleration in part B but i cant get the rest

    and then for part C i dont get where they are getting the constant from

    Remember the particle starts out at the point \displaystyle (2 , 0) .

    When you find the co-ordinates of P for when it is at instantaneous rest, you have to then take into account that it has moved that distance from point \displaystyle (2 , 0) .

    For part b:

    a = \dfrac{dv}{dt} = -10\sin 2t

    What's the maximum value of -10\sin 2t ?
