I guess it works out well that I took quite a few exams early and don't need much UMS in physics otherwise I would be very worried. Feel sorry for people without Jan exams...
I wish I had the possibility to pass some of those exams earlier rather than doing all of them in just one week...

Seriously, is the t-substitution not in A-Levels anymore? I think they pushed it into Further Maths when I took my A-Levels but I'm very surprised if its not taught anymore. Its so useful!
(I did Edexcel in case that makes a difference...)
yeah it's not in there anymore. Personally, I only use it as a last resort...
Wasn't STEP II 2007 supposed to be really nice? I haven't actually looked at the paper but I know that people on here all got +100 on it whereas on III they got significantly less (still S though, bastards!)

Yeah, there's something wrong with although I haven't done the question/scrutinised the solution. The obvious reason being that and looking at the ranges of the LHS and RHS, we require for any hope of a solution i.e. must be greater than .
Do you have a correct solution? If so feel free to post it up.
At a glance, it looks perfectly fine to me. I couldn't see any relevant use of the result at the start so your solution helps in that respect. I posted this a few days ago but completely neglected the result at the start because it felt pointless to switch to tans before I solved the equations.
I saw your question has been answered, but when you use the formula, make sure you put the number of terms in the place of .
From to the whole number there are exactly whole numbers. It is one of those where people don't know that from to there are numbers.
After STEP School I actually tried to relax for some time knowing that this is the last week until end of June where I can do nothing, so only doing 2 STEP questions a day I successfully relaxed haha. Tomorrow it all begins again, going to start by doing a STEP mock paper in school, STEP 2 2008 and hopefully get atleast a 1. How is everyone else doing ?
Damn... I've now done the 2004 II and III papers a total of 5 times in exam conditions
(Twice each doing different sets of questions, then once when I picked a few from each and made my own paper that way.)
I prefer this way of working tbh. When I'm just left alone with a STEP question I can get annoyed and occasionally bomb... for hours! Much better to work on a few at once in a set amount of time IMO So after ~18 hours of work I'm kinda close to finishing both papers.
(18 including a few hours on the train to Cambridge yesterday... Avenue Q was brilliant! )
