    A* = 65
    What do you think?
    Do you think so? So many people I know didn't do that last question...

    Thoughts on boundaries?

    58/59 for an A* or just wishful thinking?

    Hmm, I may be looking at 68ish raw marks. Enough for 100?
    Edit: That's pretty wishful thinking, I may be looking at 90ish UMS.

    So glad I only did this as an extra unit 😂 couldn't figure out 9 at all, did something really stupid and couldn't get ther it answer out at the beginning of 8 and didn't do the rest, and I'm pretty sure I got 4 completely wrong 😭 rest of the paper I think I did pretty well but this questions were worth so many marks haha, and I just didn't have enough time.

    Regrettably it's probably wishful.

    Is this for your A2 maths or further maths?

    90 UMS is more likely. I think 100 is 72-73 unfortunately.

    Ah well at least it's just extra units!

    I did it as part of my A level maths lol. I don't even do further.

    Hmm yeah. I think I dropped 10-12 marks still. Overall I just need 183 for the year with 180+ in Core 3/4.

    Praying I did okay in Core 4 :/ I'll be gutted if I just miss out.

    Realistically I'd say

    A* 66
    A 59
    B 52

    etc

    M2 boundaries are always so high for the difficulty of the paper -,-

    I know right, I always do a paper and think 'that was fairly hard' and look at the grade boundaries and they dont reflect how I find the paper at all, unlike core maths reckon it's all the further maths people who do m2

    This was harder than January 2013 which had a similar last question but it was only worth 5 marks, plus it was a show that question. This had an 8 marker in the end for which most people didn't have a clue on how to answer.

    It was 66 for an A* in Jan 13, so it won't be anything higher than that in my opinion. Probably around 63/64/65 for an A* and 71ish for full UMS.

    I'm pretty sure that was only worth 1 mark.

    Maybe the center of mass question was worth 5 marks?

    CoM was definitely 4, but I'm not sure about the other one.
    The MS definitely needs editing. Anyone know what's wrong!?
