Thats not too bad to be honest, anyone else nervous about tomorrow?(Original post by Arsey)
Lower than I thought
100UMS = 75

Thats not too bad to be honest, anyone else nervous about tomorrow? 
(Original post by Helghast)
No, I got mine like 14 hours ago. 
97 ums. Boom.

100 UMS. Bang.

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.

Thanks raheem ^_^
If you need anymore Jan 2012 past paper or mark scheme, feel free to contact me. 
i dont understand 9ii. I got up to the formation of the equations b/a=pie/10 and b/a=3pie/5pie/a. how do i solve the two. thanks so much

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 coordinates = 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 coordinate 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!

Thanks so much, really well explained.

I will create two types of thread a preexam and post exam thread.
Preexam 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)
Q1Q6 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

(7c) is not a nice Q at all (until you assign an 'x'!) 
(Original post by Aahmsil)
Here's how I did question 9(ii)
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 coordinates = 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 coordinate 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
