    Lower than I thought

    100UMS = 75
    90UMS = 68
    80UMS = 61
    70UMS = 54
    60UMS = 48
    50UMS = 42
    40UMS = 36
    Thats not too bad to be honest, anyone else nervous about tomorrow?

    Hi,

    Does anyone have the question paper as pdf? The reason im asking is because i wanted to print it and try it myself. (And yes, i do know the pdf is in the first post, but the solutions are already written in the paper itself)

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Well first off, we know that sin(ax - b) = 0
    So, ax - b = 0, Pie, 2Pie
    Take 'b' to the other side
    ax = b, Pie + b, 2Pie + b
    Divide the equation by 'a'
    x = b/a, (Pie + b)/a, (2Pie + b)/a

    From the question: x co-ordinates = Pie/10, 3Pie/5, 11Pie/10

    So, b/a = Pie/10
    And b = a*Pie/10

    (Pie + b)/a can be written as: Pie/a + b/a
    This is equivalent to x co-ordinate 3Pie/5
    So, Pie/a + b/a = 3Pie/5
    Substitute Pie/10 in place of b/a
    Pie/a + Pie/10 = 3Pie/5
    Pie/a = 3Pie/5 - Pie/10
    Pie/a = 0.5Pie
    a = Pie/0.5Pie
    a = 2

    We know b = a*Pie/10
    b = 2*Pie/10
    b = Pie/5

    Hence, solutions are a = 2 and b = Pie/5
    Hope you got what I meant.
    Cheers!

    I will create two types of thread a pre-exam and post exam thread.

    Pre-exam threads understandably need to be locked, but it seem to take ages for them to be unlocked.

    Here are my model answers, written on the paper. I thought it was a reasonable paper in comparison to previous ones.

    Question analysis

    Q1. GP, very easy (6m)

    Q2. Circles, Joke (4m)

    Q3. Binomial, pretty easy (7m)

    Q4. Logs, I thought this was easy, but I can see it causing problems. (6m)

    Q5. Factor theorem (6m)

    Q6. Trap rule, calculus. Trap rule was very easy, integration was pretty easy too (11m)

    Q7. Radians. I can see this causing problems (12m)

    Q8. Calculus. Not too bad but it will cause problems. (13m)

    Q9. a) was pretty easy but b) was very hard (8m)


    Q1-Q6 should be bankers, so 45 marks should be nailed on.

    Q7 and Q8, whilst not very hard they will cause probs and are worth a third of the paper.

    It was 65 for an A last Jan, I would say this paper was easier on the whole!

    I am going to go for

    100UMS = 75
    90UMS = 69.5
    80UMS = 64
    70UMS = 56
    60UMS = 48
    50UMS = 40
    40UMS = 32
    Can anyone please tell where i find all the ARSEY model C2 exam papers (like this paper, for all the past papers!) like he did for S1. thanks !

    Pie/a = 3Pie/5 - Pie/10
    Pie/a = 0.5Pie
    a = Pie/0.5Pie
    a = 2

    We know b = a*Pie/10
    b = 2*Pie/10
    b = Pie/5

    Hence, solutions are a = 2 and b = Pie/5

    See arsey's working here for the Jan 12 paper:
    https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q...gDsMJUxOGdfB3A

    (7c) is not a nice Q at all (until you assign an 'x'!)

    x = b/a, (Pie + b)/a, (2Pie + b)/a

    From the question: x co-ordinates = Pie/10, 3Pie/5, 11Pie/10

    So, b/a = Pie/10
    And b = a*Pie/10

    (Pie + b)/a can be written as: Pie/a + b/a
    This is equivalent to x co-ordinate 3Pie/5
    So, Pie/a + b/a = 3Pie/5
    Substitute Pie/10 in place of b/a
    Pie/a + Pie/10 = 3Pie/5
    Pie/a = 3Pie/5 - Pie/10
    Pie/a = 0.5Pie
    a = Pie/0.5Pie
    a = 2

    We know b = a*Pie/10
    b = 2*Pie/10
    b = Pie/5

    Hence, solutions are a = 2 and b = Pie/5
    Hope you got what I meant.

    sorry mate, i don't get this method, the third method by arsey looks easier to understand though, but thanks anyway
