AQA A Level Maths Discussion Thread - 2018 Edition

Hey guys, I thought I'd make this niiiiiice and early so we can all share how we're preparing for our Maths exams this year?

Further Pure 1
Date: Wednesday 13th June 2018
Time: Morning
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Days to go?: 27

Probably the most important way to prepare for maths is to do plenty of past papers! You can find the more recent papers here and the older ones here.

Also, Physics & Maths Tutor has some good resources for revision - everything from revision notes to questions on specific topics. You can find the Further Pure 1 materials here.

Good luck with the preparations everyone, let the countdown commence! Image

From what I checked on the UMS Coverter, June 2013 had the lowest with 61 Raw = 90 UMS.

Hope that helps.

Much nicer than 2016/17 papers tbh. It just seemed quite pleasant and vanilla.

It's quite annoying really as FP1 is only a module for me to rack up UMS as it isn't an A2 one, so 90+UMS means **** all.

I got that too, so I guess we're either right or both wrong?

That is definitely what you get when you put p=9 into the equation for w though so I think it's just a peculiar solution
