Do not look at last years new spec grade boundaries, those are inaccurate as only 30 people did it. However, I think it will be 70 percent A star, 60 Percent A and so on for OCR MEI.

Hi I'm studying further maths a level on the ocr mei exam board. Does anyone know of any past paper style questions suitable for revision for the mechanics minor especially but also stats minor, algorithms minor or the pure exams??

Welcome to the A-level maths study group!

Thought this would be something nice to do especially as a lot of you seem to study a level maths:lol:
This is basically where you can chat to others about the subject whether that be ranting or a good test score or a topic you're finding difficult (though if you're struggling with a question it's better to post it in a separate thread)...
So to break the ice a little, there's a few questions you can answer below

Are you in year 12 or year 13?
What exam board are you on?
Why did you pick maths? Current thoughts on the subject?
Are you doing further maths also; what optional modules are you doing if so?
Out of the topics you've covered so far, what's been your favourite and what has been your least favourite- why?


specifications:
AQA- AS | A-level
AQA FM- AS | A-level
Edexcel- AS | A-level
Edexcel FM- AS | A-level
OCR- AS | A-level
OCR FM- AS | A-level
MEI- AS | A-level
MEI FM- AS | A-level
CIE- 2019 exams | 2020 exams onwards
WJEC- AS/A-level
WJEC FM- AS/A-level

if you know of any good resources that aren't in the list below please feel free to mention them so they can edited into the list!

Its hard but I am enjoying it. How about you? My worst topic is mechanics at the moment but we haven't finished the course with algorithms yet so i'm not sure how the exam papers will be with that. What are you using to revise mechanics?

That's good as I was a bit worried. I'm just hoping we finished the course soon. How are you finding the a level course in general?

  • Year 13
  • Edexcel
  • Like maths
  • Yes, FP1 and FS1. Though I (half-)did D1 for a year and a bit so I have rudimentary knowledge to spare.
  • My favourite would probably be the calculus/series in FP1, particularly limits, or PGFs in FS1. Least favourite, barring D1, would probably be mechanics. It just doesn't interest me.
Feel free to tag me for help.
