    They did change my offer so I guess they are what's your firm choice then?
    Warwick for maths. And that's suprising actualy they will probably accept you if you miss it by a couple of marks considering the change offer

    I assume answering question 6a in radians will be also fine. Well, if I remember correctly, all my answers match with the answers in the unofficial markscheme, except for the last part of question 3, I got the simplified g(x) the same, but to show it was a decreasing function, I showed that g(n) was greater than g(n+1), anybody think that'll do the trick?

    haha hopefully! Warwick is my insurance - what a coincidence! what'd need for that and do you think you'll get the grades?

    I just subbed in x =3, x =4 etc in g(x) and showed it was decreasing with successive x values. would this get the marks as surely this still shows decreases? :/

    No one will know, but at my college, the general consensus was that it wasn't too bad an exam, so I imagine an A to be like 59, or something close to that, so like 84 maybe?

    What do you think about 58 in c3 and about 67 in c4? I know you nobody knows for sure but it's nice to have an idea 😁

    People like you take A* grades from our year
    Eek, sorry man! I never thought of it that way. On the plus side, there's more people to pull the grade boundaries down if we all fail, woohoo!
    (Original post by Millerman)
    What about 70+ C3 but then a 58/59 C4? I made some stupid mistakes today!?
    I would say that's an A*, yes. That 70+ in C3 could be 100UMS so as long as you have 80UMS in Core 4, you're fine.

    (Original post by HennersPD)
    at least you're in year 12 so you can! if I've messed this up, no uni for me
    That's true. Hey, all the best of luck to you! How do you think you've done?

    That's what i did, it will still get the first 2 marks at least for reaching that stage, I imagine that would be one of the alternate methods as long as you put an explanation.

    Thank you, didn't spot that myself!
    If on question 8, I integrated incorrectly but then got a correct c value for this incorrect ingress, like my method was correctly there on and rearranged for x =, would i get any marks or lose all 7 ? Need an A* for uni and really worried I've screwed up my chances with this exam. reckon i've got 64/75! :/

    That's an interesting one.. that'll be a high 90+UMS in Core 4 for sure, and I think that'll be either a little bit into an A or possibly just scraping an A.

    You'll probably get an A*.
