    FP1 wasn't [i]that[i] bad but nobody said it was easy or similar to past papers, turns out it had 74/75 for full UMS which was surprising for people's reactions

    I'm all up for interesting questions if they're not my exam tbh lol. I'm so hopeless at creative FP2 questions watch me burn next month lmao

    I'm not too worried about M2 on the other hand, I'm much better at mechanics. Plus I think a lot of non FM people take M2 too so mark distribution won't be as punishing for me I'm guessing
    lol AQA M2 boundaries are hell did it last year m89

    Cambridge, need A* in FM but things are looking grim right now. I wanted to get as many UMS as possible in FP3 because I find FP2 much more difficult and I think it's easier to make FP2 questions more difficult if you know what I mean. Oh well, Ill see how FP4 M3 M2 go...

    Oh ****! I also need A* for Warwick lol

    This was supposed to be the module where smashing would take place... But Ofc jokes on me cos I got the smashing...

    Now s2 & fp2 are bang in the middle of other exams...

    & although I have a 4 day gap for d2... 1 mistake on that = -A*

    But that 2016 fp3 paper was harder than all fp2 combined!

    From memory these where the questions and my answers. i made a few mistakes and if someone could explain Q2 and Q4 to me that would be great
    legit had the (1+tanx)cosx = 1+root3 etc line on the polar one but didnt think to expand it ugh lol.

    Think i've dropped ~7 by the looks, hope thats an A* else rip uni xd

    Well what can I say, my deepest sympathies and empathies as well. Got a lot of gap for FP4 and M3 but heck FP4 was just for lols, I might need to get serious for it after today's paper.
    Jesus I don't want to imagine doing decision again after the soul sacking experience that is D1.

    One was 20 and one was 36. No negatives. Do you remember what the polar equation was?
    Ah great thank you. So I still will have got method marks and marks for the correct transformation. No I can't sorry what did you get for p and q in the maclaurin expansion question. I got one as 5/3 and the other as 18/5?

    To all the people saying that the exam was sofa king hard, will you just calm down? It was hard but the questions werent breakthrough unique if u know what i mean. Seing how many people failed we can safely expect the boundaries to be at least as low as 2014. Just all be happy that fp2 is not tommorow and actually take that time to properly revise and not go parting or drinking. If you are one of the 'more able students' you know what to do, if not do all the past papers for each module and once you start scoring high marks you are fine. If you do your best yet still fail I see no reason to complain - not everyone is equal and you should be proud of what you achieved if you worked hard
