    Would 71/75 (MPC3) and 62/75 (MPC4) be enough for 180 UMS?
    Easily. So... congratulations, you have an A*!

    Dude!! What's Computing like at second year? I took it this year and really enjoyed it. I got an A* in my coursework but I'm not that great at coding to be honest, and just managed to push through by working super hard and fixing it little bits at a time.

    Will this method work in the second year? Because I really want to take the subject, but I'm honestly one of weakest coders in my class (though I somehow stumbled to 30/30 on my project this year through talking with friends and reading stuff online...).

    Do you guys thing the boundaries will be higher than last year? It certainly felt nicer than last years, especially the vector question! The recent boundaries for C4 have been kind of ridiculous anyway, low is good don't get me wrong but maths exams shouldn't have boundaries that low.

    Dude I wouldn't fret. We can't possibly speculate accurately enough to comfort you. I know it's tough because bath have put the grades up (which I think it's downright unfair during the exam season - what about the people who applied with AAB as the max they could achieve?).

    I couldn't predict it. I hope it is enough though man. Your determination gets one from me anyway haha! Apart from anything, it would be great if you did get in - we could meet up on Freshers week!



    You think 64/65 will be enough? I just desperately want an A*. I don't necessarily need it as such. It's just for the amount of effort I've put in this year.

    Gutted how I did today but hoping C3 made up for it.

    Yeah PHYA4 will be tough - join us on that thread dude

    You only need 90 avg, if you got 100 c3 then you only need 80 and 65 is definitely 80 dude. You've got it.

    Yeah I'll join tomorrow, taking a break today!

    Please don't think we don't appreciate it - I certainly do!

    If you don't mind, could I add them to the first post when you're done? I'll give credit obviously.

    my method was OE = OB + 1/2 AC or OE = OB + 3/2AC

    Bath is my insurance choice A*AA so couldn't apply for accomadation. And are they allowed to change offers once they have given you one?

    They did change my offer so I guess they are what's your firm choice then?

    On page 10 when you have gone to find c your power on the LHS has changed to -1/2 instead of 1/2. So based on your previous workings c would come out to be 5.
    Thank you, didn't spot that myself!
