    Sooooo, I did the M1 paper yesterday...

    I wish I never revised for it.


    How did you guys find it? It's the hardest exam I've done in my life, and I'm saying this, finding June 2009 M1 paper a breeze.

    Yep, I've been getting over 95% in timed past papers/mocks and then this exam comes along and it feels like it's completely misrepresented how well I should've done in the exam.

    It makes me really angry, feels like all of the revision was wasted because all of the questions seemed to have a 'twist' to the normal style. Maybe somebody else wrote this paper, as I usually recognise the different scenarios in the questions that are common to all the papers. With this one, I didn't recognise how to work towards the solutions.

    Hopefully the grade boundaries will go down, I've spoken to about 10 other people and they've all said the same thing!

    I know how you feel man. This year was supposed to be my A in Maths year.

    I made some ****tard mistakes in C1 and now this M1, unless I get 100% in C2 **** it I'm retaking the year. And ****ing Gove took our Jan exams so I have no other choice, noway I'm doing M1 along with my A2, it's hard enough with retarded exam making people.

    I really hate when they do this like 'Eh let's make em study for 5 months and **** with them in the end HERP DeRp'

    Ass holes.

    Lmao...

    The hardest part for me was comprehending the two babies sitting down.

    Was it the same baby warping at the speed of light to both sides of the plank or two different babies. OR were there even babies? I hope I get marks for drawing the particle at A and B.

    You know what **** it, I failed that exam, good game edexcel. xD
