    I'm dreading it too. I've started having the nightmares about being late for it already. I need >70 on P4, P5 & P6 and I keep worrying that there'll be really horrible integrations that I've never seen before no matter how many past papers I've done.

    Yeh P5 is my biggest worry too. Mostly for the integration and those evil intrinsic thing that I just can't do! Matrices are quite nice in P6, and P4 only has a few topics on it and is made easier by doing P6.

    yeah i gotta go over differential equations well in p4 coz i hate those
    and in p6, i kinda liked all the topics, didnt have a problem with any in specific just hard questions at times so i prefer p6 to all he others

    Well haven't had nightmares, I need an A in Further Maths to get into Oxford though, so I'm a tad worried. Though, I've done really well on M3 and P3, so far, or at least I think I have and with good marks in P4 and S2, I should only need around 70 UMS marks from both P5 and M4 and I think I'm seriously doubting myself if I can't get two 35% marks. As long as the papers aren't too bad I hope I can get that elusive A.

    Good Luck

    It works fine for me, I don't think I've messed with my version of Microsoft Word at all, so it should work for you too.

    Wouldn't say I'm that lucky, I wish I'd worked harder last year and needed less marks. I need around 430 overall from my 6 modules this year, M3, M4, P3, P4, P5 and S2. I think at the least I got 90s in M3 and P3 so that leaves me with around 250 to get and I'm hoping at least to get near full marks on S2 and P4, which leaves me with around 50 - 70 UMS to get over P5 and M4. But if I'd scraped some more marks last year, it would have been so much easier.

    Do you know what you need?

    Yeah its a bit less stressful when you know what you need to get and if it isn't that high, but P5 is the kind of paper that can really screw you over, they could put on any number of awkward questions.

    I did pretty well in my exams last year, my lowest mark was for P3 and that was 77, i could have resat it but i didnt see the point cos it wouldn't go in my further maths a level anyway and all i needed was 43 in D1 to get an A in maths. Well, I'd already got an A in maths but i want S1 (95) to go into further maths.
    I also have an offer from oxford (physics at corpus christi) that includes an A in further maths. Goddamnit, why didn't i take an easy fourth A level???

    Wow queen-of-pain - you wouldnt happen to be Dawn by any chance would you? (Met you at the Corpus Physics interviews if so...) N1 on the offer and looks like I'll be seeing you next year (if the grades work out obviously) and the easy 4th ALevel plan didnt work - my offer was for further maths not chemistry tsk
