    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!!! :argh:
    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!

    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.

    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?

    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

    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
