    Has anyone got the 2016 mark scheme for the fsmq paper? I seem to have lost the copy my teacher gave me :c

    Well I did my first past paper since the awful one I did back in April.
    As I was going through it I thought it was going awful, but I somehow scraped together 60 marks on my own (including some extremely stupid mistakes though so hopeful for higher on Tuesday). With a bit of prompting from my dad I got 78 (I'm totally not confident in my abilities to work out what to do despite being easily capable of the maths)

    Two things I have learnt:
    I really don't know my Suvat equations! Definitely needs to be rectified
    Read the question to check you've used the right information! Hasn't been a problem throughout my GCSEs, but had problems like misreading diameter as radius and other simple mistakes I shouldn't be making at this stage.

    Gonna try and get another couple of the more recent papers done on Monday and Tuesday morning to get more used to the questions, but I'm certainly a lot more positive than I was an hour ago!

    For Kinematics, I know you're meant to use SUVAT when its constant acceleration but sometimes you're supposed to use SUVAT and they dont mention anything about the acceleration being constant? how are you meant to know?

    The only time that they'll give you something *without* constant acceleration is if they want you to integrate it to find the velocity. You can pretty much assume, unless you're given the function for acceleration, that it means constant acceleration.

    The question normally says whether acceleration is constant or not, eg. it might say a vehicle accelerated at 2m/s for the first 5 seconds, then at 5m/s for the next 5. In this case, use integration.

    At gcse add maths, u have to assume that the acceleration is constant. You will never get a question where the acceleration is changing.

    You can however get varied acceleration but they will mention it and gove u the formula for it.

    I'll start
    I'm Lemur14
    I'm studying the course with one hour a week after school (and a fair amount of homework)
    We started the course in December in class, but it was moved after school because most the class weren't coping so now only a few of us do it
    I believe my predicted grade is a B, although I'm personally hoping for an A, and we've never had any form of assessment on it so I think that was a pluck it from mid air grade lol (in fact, I think it might have even been set before we started the course)
    We haven't done a mock yet. I might do myself one in February half term to see how I'm doing.
    I love all the syllabus so far tbh. Synthetic division is pretty satisfying, as is trig graphs and many other things. Though my teacher said (after he'd taught us it) than you don't get marks for synthetic division in the exam which seems a little silly lol

    What makes you think you're gonna fail - is there anything you don't specifically understand?

    You have time, just do as many past papers as you can!

    Would the 2017 paper possibly be harder than the 2016? I mean 58% for an A, can you really go much lower than that

    I felt like this yesterday. I did a few questions then attempted a past paper. The grade wasn't good, but the mark was a great improvement and I'm now feeling a lot more positive.
    Past papers are definitely your friend!
