Do you think that AQA maths is going to be easier tomoz, to even out the ggrade boundary. I do moduler and it was so ****ing hard more like a further maths A2 module than a GCSE one.

One can hope but who knows? I've been doing some past papers today and yestarday and they seemed alright - more volumes and trigonometry etc which aren't too bad. Though I suppose it depends how the questions are applied- which I think was a huge part of the problem in last weeks exams.

I'm hoping, seeing I completely mucked up the first paper (to the point where, looking back, I even managed to completely fail to do simple things I know), that this paper will turn out a lot better. I've already had to accept that I wont be getting my predicted A (after Wednesday) but failing would be...really quite horrible!

hmm, a lot of ppl seem to be doing AQA and OCR. 314,000 out of 650,000 do maths on edexcel tho. So, and im no mathmatician :p: , it shud be expected that around half of u must be doing edexcel? and know, that the calc is always harder and that this year's non-calc was much easier.

I've always found calculator a lot easier than non-calculator (Edexcel) because on the non-calc paper you have stuff like functions and surds (which is quite easy, but not as easy as things like trigonometry where you can't go wrong if you know SOHCAHTOA)

SOHCATIOA is only useful completely for intermediate tier

I do AQA A Maths and I'm not expecting paper 2 to be any easier than paper 1. After hearing peoples' thoughts on paper 1, i'm expecting the grade boundaries to be lower than recent years...unless paper 2 is a lot easier.

paper 2 is always easier because that where people generally do better as it's easier to make mistakes on paper 1 as you are usin your head as the calculator

Not quite sure what exam you're referring to, but I think often papers and mark schemes aren't released for a year. So you're unlikely to be able to get a 2005 one yet.

May be wrong however, as I say, I do not actually know what you;re asking for.

I'm not looking forward to it either, they've been keeping the transformation questions and 'draw a angle at ...' for this paper I can just tell now

I've been positive thinking about Maths this year, getting B's in both previous module exams. These are the papers that will let me down I guess...

I suck at Maths
