    I think its usually 80% for an A or a few marks below that. For January 2005 you needed:

    61 - A
    54 - B
    47 - C
    40 - D
    34 - E

    Slightly on-topic: How was the Jan exam? I missed it due to illness, I'm really screwed for tomorrow. Was it really hard or easy? Do you think tomorrow's exam will be tougher or easier?

    You can bet your money binomial will come up this time.

    Also, trapezium rule is highly likely to come up too. Both are easy marks in my opinon.

    Edit: I found the January exam hard, but if you look at the grade boundaries that contradicts my opinion. There was a lot of curve sketching on that paper and some stuff I wasn't used to. Add to that a bad day because I got volumes of revolution wrong I think with hindsight it was probably alright if I had to do it again.

    Thanks for the input. I expect I'll be retaking P2 and P3 in January for my own satisfaction though. Three cheers for unconditionals!

    You can't retake any of the pure modules after this year I don't think due to the introduction of the new core modules.

    No they won't, they are already taking the core exams.
