    Wowww that's insane! I haven't looked at a further maths paper yet, but I was very pleasantly surprised when I looked at a C1 paper (yes I know it's only AS maths but still) and found I could answer the majority of the questions already. I now understand why people say they would shoot themselves if they didn't get 100UMS in C1 and 2 haha. I think year 9 might be pushing it a bit! Haha. Well good luck to you and I'm sure you'll get the A^ considering your capabilities. And I swear FM is out of 175? I'm aiming for around 155ish.
    Apologies, it is out of 175 (that just goes to show how little preparation I've had that I don't even know what the papers are out of!) Good luck to you too! I'm sure you'll excel and get an A^^^^^^^^!

    Haha I wish that was a thing
    Do you want to study maths at uni?
    I'm positive you'll do great anyway, good luck!

    I would love to do a combined course of Mathematics and Classical English Literature (to be entirely honest, I love English more than I love Mathematics). Unfortunately, I know not of any University that offers such so I'm bound to a Pure Mathematics degree.

    What about you?

    Ooh that sounds interesting! Hope you can find a uni that does it.
    I'm wanting to do just a regular Maths degree (if that's a thing lol) followed by a PGCE as I want to go into teaching!

    Intriguing. I'm sure you'll be an excellent teacher! I on the other hand am chasing a Renaissance Man's dream!

    You probably looked at it when it was incomplete. It took a little while to get the actual paper to put the questions and mark allocations on too, but it's complete now
    Thank you I'm really happy as I usually do worse in calc papers.



    See that's good . Haha, well that means the boundaries are likely to be lower then
    I got 93
    Oh yeh. A* coming your way eh ? I'm sure you will get an A*
    No worries
    Yep

    Essentially past papers. We were told really late that we were being entered for further maths (around 12 people in my school were chosen) so not a lot of preparation time is at hand. Luckily for me however, I taught myself FP1, FP2 and FP3 A-Level Further Maths before we were told so already knew all the content before being taught anything. I'm going for a high A^ (A distinction). What about you?
    You've self taught FP1-3? That means you've also done C1-4 and you're in year 11. I may be wrong but I find that hard to believe

    Is anyone revising today ? I've had 7 exams this week - and only 1 of it i think i didn't do that well on
    I am, took a break yesterday! I'm sure you will be fine! I think I didn't do as well for English so it's okay. Hopefully, you will get the grade you want!

    OMG i forgot to had a key for the stem and leaf yesterday in the maths paper but i must say that paper was godsend - it was beautiful. What did everyone score according to the mark scheme?
    Wow, I hate when that happens, I actually remembered to put it last minute! It's just 1 mark so I'm sure you will be fine!

    I think I scored 96/97 but this depends on the examiner! I agree, the paper was beautiful!

    OMG. My all night long paid off so much. I do OCR 21st century Biology. I had thought I was going to fail (B) in the exam and after sitting it I knew I aced it.

    However, I was *****ing my pants regarding Business AQA because I didn't even revise for it and then planned on cramming it after Bio because I had 3 hours to revise. I thought I didn't do enough and would flop this exam as well but it went so well Im starting to believe I have a guardian angel. Lol. No word of a lie there. I'm not joking. How did you guys do ? I've got 3 days till my History Unit 2 exam so I'm focusing on that and P456 alongside P7.

    I'm so happy now because I know I've got plenty of time to revise for my exams because each exam has a minimum of a 2.5 day gap.

    I can assure I have. I spent lunch times and break times with an FP3 book in front of me in the library. My favourite topic is Proof by the Method of Differences in FP2.

    From 8pm to 7am but I had we revised before hand as well. It wasn't that I wasn't confident but I went to sleep during the day so I'd thought I might as well use my time. I was a bit anxious on the B456 exam as well.
