    frickin heck. Why are you all obsessed with 100UMS?
    I'd be happy with 90+ UMS.
    It's like a drug (not that i've ever taken an addictive drug), once you get some you instantly want more :rolleyes:

    I got 98/100 on P1. 98! I was gutted. I must have got 74/75 and made some stupid trivial mistake. Yet EdExcel still thought that blatently dumbing down Pure maths was required - wasn't there some stupid statistic in Jan '05 where 60% got an A on C1? Fair enough, a fair few of those may be L6FM students, but still!

    I did D1 this summer though which may get me 100/100 UMS (I did make some errors, but 60-63/75 for 100/100 UMS? Ridiculous!).

    But, alas, I don't think I'll get any 100%'s at all :-(.

    i am afraid you did make a mistake
    change in total energy is NOT
    (3/2 v² - 1/2 .3.2²) + mg(4)
    but it is:
    mg(4) - (3/2 v² - 1/2 .3.2²)
    (seeing as that is PE lost - KE gained, not plus)
    hence, work done by friction = total energy loss
    see this post for full working out:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...&postcount=100
    sorry, this is it really,
    workdone against friction = change in total energy
    8 * 10=(3/2 v² - 1/2 .3.2²) - mg(4)
    Pls check now, thanks

    I got 98 in P1 last year as well, but now I'm on the core system. It was actually 60/75 (80%) for an A on C1, not 60%

    nah, I think he is saying about 60% of the candidates got an A grade....

    And I got 99 in C1 and 98 in C2 so am in total distress and feel completely useless :rolleyes:

    That was what I was saying .

    I know nobody on here can help what EdExcel decide to do with P1-P3, but I feel a bit cheated. Maths students this year will only cover 5/6ths of the stuff that the previous year had to do (they'll probably only do two applied modules rather than three).

    Got 99 on P1 last year. Its been downhill since then. I reckon about 40 - 45% on P3 but I think I got about 72/75 on M2 so the A should be safe.
