    The bridge thing was definitely something.
    Hmmm. I've got an exam on tuesday as well (FP2). Hadn't realised the 6/6/6 thing :eek:. Could well be a devil of an exam!
    Same exam! Haven't revised for it yet though, doesn't seem a massive amount to learn though, so hopefully I'll be ok. Im assuming you're OCR aswell then?

    I hope you all stayed til the end of the credits to watch the mini-scene that was stuck in right at the end - Xavier is still alive! (I believe he's in the body of the man that you see earlier in the film that doesn't have a mind, although I can't be certain as all you hear is xaviers voice and a girl looking at him while he's offscreen.
    Please tell me you are joking! I went when the credits started!! *******s

    Yep. OCR here as well. I went through the textbook a couple of days ago. Nothing particularly tough in it. How well do you need to do in it?

    Did some calculations the other day, between FP2 and FP3 I need a total of 92/200. So there isn't any pressure on it tbh. You?

    Nice! I need 190 from FP2, FP3 and S2. Shouldn't be too demanding (famous last words :rolleyes: ). How come you're only doing two modules this time? How many did you do in Jan?

    Are the boundaries what you expected?

    Im doing S2 aswell! However I didnt certificate my A-level maths last year so I can module switch meaning it doesn't matter how I do in S2, all it will affect is my UMS in my normal A-level, but I'll still get an A. I love the module switching system :p:.

    I may have to revise properly for FP3 though, cant remember any of the de moivre's stuff and we were meant to self-teach groups, but instead I spent the lesson time pissing about, even played poker once :p:

    Here's an alternative link, it gives you the boundaries going back to 2000 - http://s9.invisionfree.com/step_prep...topic=63&st=0&

    Essentially, 4 good answers will probably get you a 1. The boundaries are usually a bit lower on STEP III - 15/20 on 4 questions would have got you a 1 on that most years, whereas on STEP II you would have needed about 17/20 on 4 questions. Also, my friend went on a STEP study school in Cambridge at Easter, and they told them that anyone with a 1,1 offer who got a 1,2 would be phenomenally unlucky not to get in, although it might be at a different college.

    FP3 is fine, proof by induction is lovely and the matrix questions are rarely too terrifying. Its FP2 you want to watch out for - I'm doing it in about a fortnight. Only M2 and S2 this week, and I got 100% on a practice M2 paper yesterday so I'm not too paniced. M3 a week on Monday is the real terror for me, it starts actually needing proper mechanical intuition as well as pure maths skills, which is where I fall down. I can rarely do mechanics STEP questions for that reason.

    FP3 does stink. I haven't got a clue about groups or most of the vectors stuff. De Moivre is actually quite easy once you get the hang of it.
    Just done some of my own calculations and manipulation and turns out I need 97 from FP2 and FP3. It's great!

    With OCR, induction and matrices are on FP1. FP1 is fun . FP3 is the one to watch out for (for me anyway).

    For STEP, do you have a go at the Mechanics and Stats questions as well as the Pure?

    Good luck...but do I mean that? Bloody STEP :p:

    I stick with pure when it comes to STEP III now, had too many incidents with STEP III mechanics. STEP II, hopefully I won't need to look at the mechanics, depends if enough questions suit me, which looking back at past papers, can really bloomin vary from year to year.

    I hope you all stayed til the end of the credits to watch the mini-scene that was stuck in right at the end - Xavier is still alive! (I believe he's in the body of the man that you see earlier in the film that doesn't have a mind, although I can't be certain as all you hear is xaviers voice and a girl looking at him while he's offscreen.

    You serious!! Noooooooooooooooooooooo!! We left when credits started..damn it.

    Yeah hair is now phoenix red/violet - and no i didnt read the books, i'd love another Xmen - i think the stories are good!
