    Don't worry , just check the unofficial mark scheme:

    I'm sure you didn't get a U , even if you did its not to late you can do a resit next year .

    Also don't let negative comments get to you and just keep your motivation high and believe in yourself.

    Yes, for a B, you need at least 210/300 UMS overall, so you would still have a chance if you had 10 UMS. Also, the exam was quite hard, so the grade boundaries will be low and you may not have got a u.

    A U in one exam is not a disaster, if you're planning on doing maths at A2 level, just resit the paper and you'll find it so easy you'll wonder how you got so worked up in the first place!

    The tears should flow when you do C4 though...

    It depends on how the grade boundaries are; probably around 30 UMS as the exam was quite difficult.
