# aqa gcse maths exam? How did you find it? watch

Announcements
1. Hi-

Just wanted to know how people found the foundation maths paper? I found it ok- i really need that C!!
Let me know your thoughts on this
2. Hello again. I thought you would have clicked onto my posts! lol

Yeah I found paper one ok. I think I probably got 78%. and paper 2 was a bit confusing! I mean what was the train question all about? I began to understand it slightly at the end but ew horrible question.

Oh and the shape question was confusing, for the first part I wrote paraleogram, Rhomus and Rectangle. Then for part B I wrote Rhomus and Parralelegron*!> and in part C I wrote Rhombus has 2 lines of symm. Confusing?

But I think I got 75% on it. I only needed a low D on both Papers to get a C overall so i think I got it!

I was just glad that Pythagroas came up! and the last few questions like the % increase and decrease was easy!

How did you find it?
3. Did you do AQA B? Module 5?
4. i did spec b.. and i thought paper 2 was better then paper 1...

paper 2 the last question on capacity i thought was a *****..

and the litre conversion in papepr 1 and interial angle in paper 1 was a *****

but overall i think i got around 57 marks in paper 1 and 61 in paper 2?

which is a C? i hope

What did you get?

I worked out the volume of the cylinder, which was 4501. Then I converted cm into litres and ended up with 4.5 litres, the "200 litre" statement was inaccurate.

The interior angle question wasn't bad, 2/3 methinks.

It depends on your coursework grade, what did you get? Normally its 70-80% for a C in Foundation.

yeah i got 4510 or something like that.. kool i might of got those marks... but i did put weither it was accurate grr because i ran out of time would that matter?

i got part a on interior angle but part b was a ***** i think maybe a mark on that..

Mod 1 B
Mod 2 D
Mod 3 C
Mod 4 C
so i was at a C at this point!
and mod 5 i must of ****** up big style because i got a E at the end so the college let me resit if i wanted to!

but AQA have let me resit this for free because my teacher accused AQA of making the higher tier mod 5 paper back in the summer too hard which i it was as i only answered about 8 or 9 questions! and i did alot of revision for it and still struggle so i glad with that!

but we get the result for this Thursday 15th January 2009 if you didnt already know!

Hi- soz for the late reply, i found paper 1 easier than paper 2. I can't remember what shapers i chose for the shape question, i kinda guessed, so if i get it correct it was a total fluke. I counted up my marks at the end on each paper strictly and leniently at the end of each exam, and i think i may have just scraped 70% on each paper, or so i hope!

Glad to know that you are so close to grasping that C. I just don't want to put my hopes up to high and then find out that i got a D *** results day.

Let me know what you get and i'll do the same.
