The exam was awful!
Let alone it wasn't an easy exam, my biggest problem was the time. Neither my friends nor I actually managed to finish all the exam before collecting the papers. I'm curious to see what the curve will look like this session.
Anyway, we still have the mechanics to finish.
Any idea when will the results come out?

How many marks are you expecting to lose?
I'm not bragging, but I consider myself a good student since I lost 10 marks combined in both pure and mechanics in my AS exam.
YET, I'm expecting to lose at least 30 marks in just paper 34. I don't know what to do now since the offer I got from university requires me to get an A* in maths!

What the actual **** was this? Time consuming and not necessarily hard, but questions very different than usual, that’s what made it so time consuming. Definitely resitting in June.

I lost 9 marks total for M1 and C12 last year but this? This wasn't a normal exam. My predicted grade was A* but I lost about 35 marks in this exam. Horrible.

I think maximum it will go down to 105.

Anyone remember the total marks for each question (from 9 to 11)?
