Anyone else have AH maths today? What did you think of it?

I was dreading it but actually found it a good bit easier than I thought it would be, think it went quite well!

i had AH maths today and i thought it was ok. I was expecting a lot more 'standard' questions like second order differential equations, De Moivre's theorem and things like that rather than weird questions about odd functions and transformation matrices.

but i think i did alright, except for a few questions which i had no idea how to do / got impossible answers for.

It was a straightforward paper, thank goodness - did you see the Higher, too? That was *very* straightforward

Good luck with revision

So what do people think the direction we should go in regarding Scottish subforums should be? Personally I think it would be wrong to have a dedicated Highers forum when we don't have one for AS/A2's. I think that the most appropriate think to do would be to make amendments to the individual uni subforums to include some uni's from Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Opinions, thoughts, feelings?!? :confused:

How about a General Scottish section located somewhere? A sort of devolved sub-forum?

Do we really need them :confused:
There are already too many, particularly in the University section.
Then again with this New Posts feature I guess it wouldn't be too much of a problem.

Hey

I sat Higher maths too yesterday - lots of people are saying that they found it straightforward (luckily, so did I)

I have a question for my compatriots, though. I've been told that at SG if you score 80+% in a paper you get a '1', nomatter how everybody else does (except when its incredibly difficult), but at Higher, c. 20% get an "A". My worry is this: because everybody did so well (relatively), will that push the threshold for an "A" way up? What do you think?

The exams this year have all been really straightforward - whats that about???

If a paper is easy and people do well, the threshold will go up - but probably only by a couple of percent. Apparently they moved the higher maths threshold up last year, so I don't know why they made the paper relatively easy again...

Stop worrying so much!

To truely justify the *UK* in UKL then it could be argued that it is a good idea.
