    Reasonable paper I thought


    Jan C3 boundaries have been fairly consistent in recent years; 61, 59, 60

    I would say Jan 11 (61) was the most challenging of the 3.

    I think Jan 12 was significantly easier than Jan 11, so I can only think that the boundaries will increase

    My best guess is....

    75 = 100UMS
    69 = 90UMS
    63 = 80UMS
    57 = 70UMS
    50 = 60UMS
    43 = 50 UMS
    36 = 40UMS

    Think so

    Concurred with the model answers on all questions, guessing a slightly above average grade boundary since a couple were trickier than usual.

    Arsey - do you think there will be any mark lost for putting that t= 28 minutes to the nearest minute instead of 12:28 as an actual 24h time? Otherwise full marks!

    74... Damn, 12.28, what a cursed time!

    For the normal to the curve, i got the correct x coordinate, the right dy/dx in terms of y but somehow worked the gradient out as -1/2 not -8. After that i made an equation using that gradient. How many marks will i have lost?

    Got everything else right except the domain, i didn't know what was going on :P

    Thanks Arsey Just confirmed my suspicions that I mess up Q8 but very very surprised but happy to find out that I got that 10 marker right Few silly mistakes... time in minutes thing... but other than that alright.
    Grade boundary predictions would me greatly appreciated if possible!
