    Ah I see why you're being perfectionist now

    I've done 2005-2008 M2 papers and June 09 + Jan 10 for homework so I've done a few!

    I'm by no means as comfortable with M2 as I am with Core 3 and Clre 4 but I guess that's not a bad thing?

    What other subjects do you do?

    If you don't want to do hem all just do 2013 and 2014 because they are the hardest. You should try to get at least 60 though because 'failing' any module looks bad.

    I did m, fm, physics, chem at AS and dropped chem for A2

    That's true! I might do the recent papers and aim for ~61 UMS (as I need an average of 61 in each of the three papers for an A at the very least).

    That's amazing! I only have 7 exams in total, let alone 9 maths exams! Haha. Good luck!

    How are you finding those modules?

    Does anyone know whether for an A*:

    An average of 90 UMS is needed in C3 and C4 with 480/600 overall.
    For example, you get 89 UMS in C3 and 91 UMS in C4.

    Or

    At least 90 UMS is needed in C3 and C4 with 480/600 overall.
    For example, you have to get 90 UMS or higher in both for an A*.

    Thank you!

    How's your revision for C3 and C4 going? What other subjects do you do?

    C3 isn't too bad, just need to go over integration properly. C4 on the other hand... You?

    I do chemistry and biology, yourself?

    Oh right that's cool C4 is definitely harder! Did the June 2014 paper as a mock today which confirmed that.

    What option unit do you do? I do M2

    Ah I do Computing, Physics and History - do you wish to go to uni this September?

    Oh nice! I don't "hate it" per se, but I don't like how nasty some questions can be. The topics are manageable but sometimes questions are phrased so that even the simpler topics become difficult!

    Cool! Bath for Computer Science for me need AAA though
