    Lmao.

    Just because we get high(ish) grades, we have no life skills?
    I love how you added the "high(ish)" bit to show deep down in your heart you're an extremely modest person.

    I put T too hahahah RIP
    I think you'd probably still get the marks man, provided the idea is right. I think they're just looking for you show them that the inverse matrix and original matrix is the same. I don't think they'd really be pedantic over that

    I thought it was a nice peg 😌😂. If my brain decided to abandon me for fp1 I can only imagine fp2. Gosh I am dreading that now. 😕
    Yeah, I would've loved it if I'd been awake. I have a two hour written exam before FP2; can't wait...

    Are you doing any other mechanics modules this year?

    Yeah, let's do that!

    Don't worry I was aiming for 90+ UMS and ended up just missing out on an A last year and still aiming for an A* this year. It's not too limiting if you don't do as well as you wanted to ☺️
    Yeah I get you.. it's just frustrating..

    Even if the paper came out, your vantage point of having dealt with uni level maths wouldn't dictate an accurate 'reaction' to how most people felt.

    True. I'm not hating on people for finding an exam hard. Also I'm not saying I could gauge the reaction or how people felt from the paper. That stuff is evident from the threads anyway. I'm talking about the difficulty of this paper relative to previous papers, which I think can be clouded by exam pressure, which I have experienced a lot myself.

    Is that sarcasm?

    Lel but you're right though. I probably have fewer life skills compared to other people my age.

    I usually only look at the 80 UMS boundary so forgive me if this seems far off:

    100 UMS – 74
    90 UMS – 68
    80 UMS – 60
    70 UMS – 53
