I didn't find it too bad, paper two had a few tricky ones in it, but I had a stab at them still confident for an A I think. wby?

lol Probably not, but your probably in the minority.

I didn't find it as difficult as some here are suggesting, but it was definately harder than I expected.

The invigilators were just giving us sympathetic looks all throughout as people were restlessly moving and sighing, and crying.
i think paper one was not too bad, but what the hell was paper 2?

Have the SQA just decided "to hell with it, they've done all the past papers, but we'll give them something that looks like nothing they'll have seen before!" ARGGGH!!!
Yeah! The invigilators kept looking around sympathetically as nearly everyone was still there when there was five minutes, and there was a few people crying also. Aaargh, so annoyed at the SQA!

5. did anyone else get 3.41 for 7 (b)?
6. Well i worked out journey from PQ so q - p Then i used point L2.
I did the distance fomula and got sqaure root of 169 which seemed right to be but who knows. Hopefully someone will make a worked solution on the paper.

what did everyone get on the last question part (c) in paper 1 where you had to find the shortest distance between PQ and L2, i got 13 units

Also i had like 4 A's in a row in multiple choice questions
I got root10 over 2
8. (Original post by CSR)
I got root 10/4 as well
Thank goodness. Looks like I got vaguely the right answer

i got 1. Then wrote a statement about how the distance would be constant as they were parallel. Probably really obvious, but it means I look like I know what i'm talking about

has anyone got their answers for Section A?

11. I found Paper 1 really easy, then Paper 2 was such a shock. I think I managed to get an answer to all the questions except for 2b and all of qu 7, but I'm still hoping for an A
12. Was that paper 2 actually serious? My teacher was almost crying never mind anything else! AAAA
13. (Original post by CSR)
I got root 10/4 as well
I got that and then simplified to (root10)/2
14. (Original post by nothing_but_sky)
I got root10 over 2
Me too!
15. (Original post by AspiringVet)
I got root 10/4, as did a couple of my friends. But then some other people got 5.
I got that too!

Paper 2 was such a bad paper! Aargh

Yeah Paper 2 was quite Difficult :P I didn't get 6 or 7 but maybe picked up some marks on 6. Unless x=0 on 6 was the only answer >.>

Still Think I got an A

Apparently it was a new setter this year for higher maths and I thought it was quite obvious...even the format of the questions were different!
They where I know they test you on the same things but I've only seen q 1 and 2 a before
