Kicking myself- think I did 6 in degrees

2. Re: Higher Maths 2012
The answers I posted were what I got with Laurens edits, There all correct as far as I can tell, (I agree with the edits ) But question 20 may be wrong

No way? Please let that be right!!!!
I got B for 20, i don't see how 2 is the answer.
4. Re: Higher Maths 2012
Anyone else get x=~0.88 and y=~3.4 for 7 on paper 2? That one was a doozy
5. Re: Higher Maths 2012
7 looks like it should work out to be:

y would be 3.41...

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
For a few of them i practically had to write I'm not an idiot, I know how numbers work, but you're being mean this year
I wrote about parallel lines and then I was like I know that -H'(x) is the inverse, and twice as big, but I don't know what the first one was, therefore I CANNOT draw it for you!
I now dislike the SQA a whole lot more....

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?
Yeah I'm pretty similar, harder than expected, still confident for an A, and got some nice looking answers for the hard ones

Guess we're both on the same boat the I hope so.... How could it be A where the answer was 2?

Has anyone got a paper 1 which they could upload?
If nobody has then I shall try to upload mine but it has writing plastered over it....

Nor do I! Heres hoping the teacher is wrong... But he is the head of maths and has a PhD so that's reasonably unlikely :P

Most of Circle question is me writing to the marker that this is how it works :P.

Did everyone else get the equation to be (x+5)^2 + (y-5)^2 = 40?

See for 23a (section B P1), did anyone get:
a) 3y-x=8
b)y+3x=1
c) (-0.5,2.5)
d) 1 - don't think that bit is right
I defo got b) how did you get y+3x=1

???

I'll only be able to take pics of it and upload it, I don't have a working scanner
15. Re: Higher Maths 2012
what was 20 again in the multi guess ? the question
16. Re: Higher Maths 2012
(Original post by ..lauren)
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
11.C and 12.C anyone

No! How did you do that?
I was even thinking about doing equilateral triangles
