Do you think you'll improve your UMS ?

How many units did you do today ?

How did you find the papers ?

Hmm I could have done D1 to try and pick up a few extra points, but it became too late to enter. Maybe I will take the January sitting, along with the six other exams I have then :mad:
My mates are taking it, as their original grades range from... err... E to U hahaha! I don't understand how, I found it so easy! My best mate alsio got a U in P1 which he will resit in January. I will keep you posted on how my mates get on that day.

By the way, Expression, maybe you should put up a sticky for BMAT candidates. Just a thought.

Every school has a different policy for starting time, it should be between 1:15-2 pm.

Good luck.

Sat P2 for the first time this morning along with an S1 retake. Edexcel changed the exam style so that for P2 we had space to write the answers under the questions (together with space for sketches of graphs), and for S1 we had a seperate answer booklet that had graph paper and the question numbers printed in it.

S1 was ok - only six questions though which surprised me. P2 was hard however. The people that were retaking P2 said it was harder then the exam they'd sat in the summer. Questions 5 and 8 seemed to stump most people.

How did everyone else find their exams? Anyone sit any Edexcel maths modules?

Translation up 11 and left 8 I think. I'm certain of the 'up 11' bit.

Oh yeah left by half! Gradient would be affected by a coefficient of x^2 I think...
