Ahh I didn't do great..definitely got all the first 5 correct but then was hit and miss with many of the others..

The stationary points question where you had to use the quotient rule x= 1, 3..can't remember the y co-ordinates though

For the revolution of the solid did you guys integrate (pi y^2) y^2=5x and then find the area of the cone? I did that but forgot to integrate the pi5x!!!!

The last question about the volume was x=2
VN= 3x? 5
Can't remember many of the others..I reckon I got about 60%, Ill try really hard for the next one to get the A.

Amed. Do you go to a specialist maths school considering nearly the whole of your year is doing this exam?

Does anyone have the O level Pure Mathematics Papers before 2007?
3. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
I think it was y=1-2x

No. It's just that pure maths is such an important subject, everyone wanted to keep it. We had this test before being allowed pure maths that anyone who gets less than 75% in maths-b would not be allowed pure maths (this was back when we were choosing subjects). Everyone studied so hard, they managed to get more than 75% besides the about 10 people who didn't get it.

But, our batch is among the best our school had in years, so, most students are better than average.

Anyways, good luck for paper 2!!

Wat was the answer for the volume question guys?
6. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
120.5.6 pi as in 120whole and 5/6 fraction whole pi like 120+(5/6) pi

ah thanks man
8. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
What topics do you think will come up in paper 2?
9. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
GP, Binomial, Vector, Using integration to find Area, Rate of change (Differentiation), Graph, Factor/Remainder Theorem
10. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
so how did you guys find the angle btween the two planes AVC and BVD?
i have no idea but i think i got some answer
and how come you remember all the asnwers amed

amed where r u frm?+ what do u thnk wud be the answer to the question about finding the area of the kite???
12. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
does any 1 remember that whether in the kite question the lines bisected each other or were perpendicular??

Does anyone remember what topics were in paper 1? I forgot if we had vectors yet or not...

We did not have a vectors question so that will probably come up tomorrow - you'll need to know about unit vectors, proving parallel and collinear.
We had simultaneous equations, planes, using cos & sin, log etc and quadratics.
I can't remember anymore. I believe Amed posted the likely topics for paper 2.

I'm from Bangladesh. I'm 100% sure it's 59.5.
17. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
One more topic is roots of equations: alpha,beta, real/imaginary roots, etc
18. Re: IGCSE Further Pure Mathematics Edexcel June 13th 2011
