    It was terrible! Whenever I sit a maths paper, I flick through the paper before I write anything, and my god. I don't think my facial expressions have ever changed so much in a such a short period of time. My jaw was just dropping lower and lower, I must've looked like a right fish. I actually tried drawing k on myself for that vector question.

    Dammit. I was COUNTING on non calc to get me an A because it is not going to happen with the calc, I'm worse with that! This was my one chance to leave maths forever. AHHHHHHH. I want to murder edexcel with a pitchfork.
    retard your supposed to draw k and use it to find out your answer the anwsers are out search on student rooms and the anwser for that was -a+2b

    Oh, dear Lord...
    I sat this exam yesterday. I cried. I never cry in school! My maths teacher was worried, I managed to sit the paper, but I couldn't think straight. It was REALLY hard! Even my maths teach mimed "F---ing hell!" when he had a flick through it afterwards. LOL.

    Was it just me or was the K missing in the "find K" vector question? I did so bad on that paper. I'm still rather upset about it. Cal paper should be easier, hopefully.
    Lool Your spose to extend the AB line to K, So you draw a new line from B to K. :rolleyes:

    I see no reason for the grade boundaries to be high - I mean, if it was as hard as everyone has said, then the grade boundaries are much more likely to be higher...

    And your teacher knows how everyone did in the nation? I don't think so. Nobody can say what the grade boundaries can be, you'll just have to wait and see...

    How many marks do you think an A* would be, once both papers are added together? The calculator paper was so much better and accessible than the non-calc so does this mean the boundaries will roughly remain unchanged? :confused:

    Hopefully, it won't be any higher than 173/200. I got roughly 176-183 and I'm hoping that's enough for an A*, how much did you get?

    Nobody knows what the grade boundaries are yet but based on past results 104 will not be enough for an A and will be easily more than enough for a B

    I don't see why this guy got a thumbs down, he's exactly right -a+2b, was probably the guy who the comment was directed to because of the "retard" that was harsh, but still mate, whoever did the thumbs down, and the commend maker in the first place about drawing on K, dude the answer was eventually -a+2b, that's all, just wait and see tommorow/thursday (our class gets the answers hopefully tommorow)

    I am confident i will get an A*.

    Surprised grade boundary lowered from the nov paper. The nov paper was way harder than the recent paper.

    How does everyone else feel?
