# OCR (non mei) FP3 Friday 17th June 2016 watch

1. Hi!
This is for discussion pre and post the up coming FP3 exam
Lets start the discussion!

For past papers and mark schemes:

For some older past papers:

2. I like FP3 more than FP1 and FP2. I need to brush on some topics though like vectors or else I could totally be screwed over by OCR....
3. Anyone else struggling with Vectors?

Yeah it's the weakest topic for me atm
5. Does anyone know of any good revision resources online or anywhere? There's not a lot for further maths modules!!

6. Examsoloutions is excellent for tutorials, and physucsmathstutors has all the oast paper questions. I self teach so have the FMSP Integral resources which are also good, but tbh just do all the past paper questions and youll be fine
7. My next exam now, I'm sensing a tough paper

Quite good in general, just worried about the polar coordinates/complex number questions, I'll never understand them, yourself?

why can't you understand them?
12. Groups/Vectors scare me, so different from everything else in other modules
13. Is polar form e^ix with 0<x<2pi ?

Whats cartesian form for complex numbers?

Whats the name of the form cos(x)+isin(x) ?

I believe Cartesian would just be z=re^ix

I think the latter name is polar form.

Tbh you can work out usually f question which one you need to use.

Idk I guess just cus they ask a different question about it every single time, so its hard to get a routine kind of thing

I'm happy as long as there isn't a weird roots question or a nasty group question. I'm happy with everything else

good notes http://mathshelper.co.uk/OCR%20FP3%2...on%20Sheet.pdf
19. get the easy questions done as fast as possible as its likely there is going to be a question you'll need to think about and mess around with for some extra minutes.
20. I feel like I know everything on the spec and can do it all, but I'm sure I'll still get ****ed over by this exam.
