# AQA A2 MFP3 Further Pure 3 – 18th May 2016 [Exam Discussion Thread] watch

1. I just realised I messed up the first question fml. Was the equation: 2dy/dx-5y=10x
2. Urgh that was just miserable. I really needed 2 hours for that.

I got different signs for 1
7. ...I aced all the previous past papers and this paper was horrible. I was expecting an easy A* but I'll be lucky if I get a C.
8. I wish I had my asperger's rediagnosed for extra time, I'd do a deal with the devil for extra time.

Tell me about it, I did all the past papers I could find, I was getting 95+UMS each time (except June 2012 :P). Then we get this paper.

Relying on low grade boundaries :'(
10. How did u have to find p and q , binomial?
11. Can anybody predict the grade boundaries for an A*?
12. For question 2 I got p=5/3 and q=8/5. It's probably wrong...

Exactly the same here. Was getting 70+ on all the past papers and felt so confident going in. But this was so awful. I need to ace FP2 and FP4 to even stand a chance of getting an A in FM. It just seems so unfair.
14. Nothing was straightforward.

I might be wrong, but I did the binomial, expanded it and compared the coefficients.
16. How many marks did u lose best case scenario?

Same... -4/5 I think? Not 100%

Best case... I lost 23, worst case... don't even go there
19. Has someone made a hitler video for this exam? I could do with a nice laugh.

Got the same, though for some reason q pops in my mind as -8/5 but it could be me not remembering properly.
