Hello everyone, I just wondered if, in C1, full marks/100 UMS is a common occurrence? And is there any statistics anywhere about the average mark scored on C1?

Focus on attaining 100 UMS in C4; C1 is an insult to mathematicians

I'm doing AS levels, so why would I currently be focusing on C4?

It's fairly standard - I think there was a year where the modal mark was 100 UMS. You just need to focus on arithmetic and not making silly mistakes.

That's really not constructive. If you're going to go down that route, all core A-Level modules as well as the easier FP, M, S and D are "insults" to mathematicians.

I actually found core 1 hardest out of all the papers ( I still got 98% in it) but it was my lowest score out of everything. Theoretically it's the easiest but because the grade boundaries are so high it's so difficult to get 100% whereas for all the other papers getting near 100% was easier for me as I could afford to drop a few marks.

I think OCR and AQA are both quite heavy on e, integration and trig identities. So much satisfaction doing those papers omg. My exam board for maths was AQA but I did OCR papers for revision too I really loved Core 3 it's amazing

Oh yeah I forgot Edexcel existed :lol: I think I did PE and GCSE Accelerated Maths with them. Our school generally goes with OCR except for Maths and English and maybe some Social Sciences. We're not even a Welsh school but we used WJEC for Latin at GCSE how bizarre lol

100 UMS is the modal C1 mark, which should be easy to obtain, as long as you don't accidentally miss a question like I did. In June 2015 the mean mark was 56.3 and about 4.5% got 100 UMS, which was 75/75.
