What does the I.Y.G.B in the IYGB papers even stand for?

Your grades seem good, I just thought I'd point out though that there is no such thing as an A* for M1. If you want an A* in maths you need at least 90% ums in C3 and C4 and 80% ums on average over the rest of the exams.

That being said looking at your grades so far, if you're this strong in the other units I'm sure you'll do well. Keep up the hard work. :thumbsup:
Thanks for the encouragement, I appreciate it!

Yeah I know there isn't a A* in M1 but that isn't stopping me from aiming for 90 ums since every little helps. I've been averaging A* (92-94% in C3) and A* (92-95% in C4) for roughly 12-13 past papers(all Edexcel Jan 11-June 15 + some IAL papers) on C3/C4 each but I still have more past paper resources to use before C3/C4 exams I.e finishing up any IAL past papers & grinding as many madasmaths past papers out before the exam. :moon:

If I can score an 'A'(80%) grade in M1 it would make my life a lot more easier knowing that I just have to perform as normal as I do in C3/C4 and I've got a A* overall.

What about yourself? What are you aiming for?

Yes. This time they would act downwards parallel to the plane and vertically

Zacken Do you only take the square root of something to find magnitude if vectors are involved? So for example if the question did not involve vectors and it asked to find the magnitude of the force exerted on a pulley, would you or would you not take the square root of whatever answer you get?
