# Oxford Finals Marks Finder

Oxford Maths finals questions ~~are~~were marked out of 25, with 21–25 being an alpha, 13–20 a beta, and with each mark squared and then added to produce some sort of total, which then was used (along with other information such as 2α+β) to classify us. This does mean that when results come out, we are given lots of totals for each paper or subject, but no question mark breakdown. Thankfully, the totals give us enough information to work out possible marks for each question, which is what this page provides. Enter your paper details below:

For anyone remotely interested, here is the breakdown of my Finals Part II marks:

Subject | Sum | Sum Squared | Alphas | Betas | Possible Marks |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Perturbation Methods | 48 | 1152 | 2 | 0 | 24, 24 |

Complexity & Cryptography | 66 | 1250 | 2 | 1 | 22, 21, 17, 6 or 24, 21, 13, 8 |

Maths & the Environment | 59 | 1189 | 2 | 0 | 25, 22, 8, 4 |

Applied Solid Mechanics | 42 | 524 | 0 | 2 | 15, 13, 11, 3 or 16, 14, 6, 6 or 15, 15, 7, 5 |

Mathematical Physiology | 68 | 1562 | 2 | 1 | 25, 24, 19 |

Numerical Linear Algebra | 46 | 658 | 1 | 0 | 21, 10, 9, 6 |

Total Part II (the above) | 329 | 6335 | 9 | 4 | |

Total Part I (last year) | 615 | 11903 | 14 | 11 | |

Overall | 944 | 18238 | 23 | 15 |

The 1/2.1 borderline is 16000 and 2α+β ≥ 54. Yay me. :)
