My M.C answers, I think most are right.
4 was B, 12 was B, 13 was D and I think 20 was A (although I got B). I only know this because one of our teachers marked it. I got 18 and 20 wrong

Me too!
Phew! I thought it was such an odd number for a distance and kept trying to find my mistake haha.
3. Can someone post up Paper 1 please?
4. That makes me feel a lot better, pretty sure I got at least 16 out of 20 for MC, just hoping that they'll give me some marks for my dire paper 2

Haha. Same, I stormed out the exam demanding what everyone else got, cause I went over my working and kept coming out with the same answer.

Getting a little more confident about paper 1 now, but paper two will definitely drag me down. Thoughts on the A boundary this year? Reckon they'll drop it lower than normal?
9. I managed to figure out 7(a), when I was halfway up the road :/
I got to the step before the answer but I think the answer is:-
x=log4(9)/log4(12) (:

I typed in 12 wrong :P I got that aswell. I agree with you though, so I'll change them.

Did you substitute the answer for 7(a) into y=4^x?
12. Kicking myself- think I did 6 in degrees
13. question 20 of multiple choice is A, and i think the grade boundary will sit at 70% due to how easy paper one was and how difficult paper 2 was

My teacher 20 was B Are you sure she said it was B? I could be wrong because my teacher didn't do the paper, she told us the answer after a glance at it.
No way? Please let that be right!!!!

was 12 really b. i dont know about the max value but im sure that x value was 5pi/6
18. Paper 2 was a disgrace, got to the point were I was literally writing, cannot factorise so I'm changing the number.. I mean what the hell is that? Never have I thought that I would resort to making up my own numbers
