Hey there. I just got my results today. Quite gutted. I got a strong B in paper 1 and only 50% in paper 2 which meant i got a C overall! pretty rubbish. I really need a B to get into Uni.

More work required!

I've got 49/? and 41/? so far which isn't much use since I don't know how many marks there are total. I'm sure there isn't more than 150 so it should hopefully be a pass. It'll be somewhere between 100-150 I'm guessing.
But I do have another possible 10 marks on a vectors question that was messed up. So I spent ages trying to do that question in the exam for nothing. >.< Oh well, at least vectors are normally reasonably possible. Although it must be an hard one for 10 marks. Thats on Thursday.

It depends on how everyone else done I think. When I was doing my prelims I was told that roughly 70% was needed for an A and roughly 90% was needed for A band 1. I found the prelims I sat in maths (and chemistry too incidentally) seemed really long, I struggled to finish my maths one in time. I am a really slow worker though.

Anyway, my class just sat another prelim (but it didn't include any material we covered since we sat the last one) because most of my class failed the last one. I just done it anyway, I thought it would be good practice. It was quite difficult though, although I think that I will have near enough full marks. Should find out my actual percentage on tuesday.

Edit - 97% smile.gif

Edit again - They gave me another mark, so its 98% now tongue.gif

Heh, someone in my school got one mark between the two papers (for getting the formula for the gradient right). He gave up after the first question btw, he didn't actually try to answer the whole paper. It worked out at less than 1% laugh.gif

oh well sat both and...34/60 + 15/70. Overall a fail, I thought doing Int 2 last year would have prepared me for higher, but only 4 people in the class sat int 2 last year, plus 2 fifth years in our class, and ofcourse its the people who sat higher last year were the ones passing the prelim




I did Int 2 in 5th year and was told because i had done units 1,2 and 4 (applications) intead of 1, 2 and 3 (algebra) that i had no chance of passing my final, got 39% in my prelim and a C in my final, just shows you if you work then it is acheivable.

In my prelim in Feb i got 37% but this past month i have started working really hard and in the mini prelim we just sat, mostly unit 3 but a few questions on other units, i got 71%.

There is still hope for me to get a B. Just need to keep working hard!

Good Luck to everyone!

I had a mini-prelim today, mostly unit 3 questions, and it was awful. I'm really annoyed because I think I might have got a C, which will drag down my overall prelim grade to somewhere around a B mad.gif
