    That has to be the easiest C2 paper i've ever seen in comparison to past papers! Couldn't have asked for anything better! Just hoping c3 and c4 are that easy too :P
    How did everyone else find it ?

    I'm hoping I didn't muck up the integration because a lot of subbing in and rearranging is involved...

    I swear someone predicted that on the C2 thread (might have been Arsey) - I went and learnt it as well luckily enough...
    Hmm, I think he did. I thought it would come up as it seemed to repeat itself every few years

    Hi.. (waiting for model answers )
    I think it was ok, but I was re-taking. Our L6 was complaining about the logs in question 2.. but that's them

    Anyway, in question 3 for the perimeter of the sector I forgot to add the radius, so basically I calculated jsut the arc length (as 9.28).
    And in question 6 I only got 0°, 39.2° & 90°, and not the other two solutions.
    How many marks would I have dropped there? I'm hoping for 90UMS, and if that's it, it should be alright, shouldn't it?

    Thanks (also to Arsey for providing this!)

    Expecting only 1 mark lost due to forgetting to round the 85mm^3 question, apart from that it was fine, the exam took me 20 minutes to finish, checked over (missing the "round to the nearest integer" part of that question) and went to sleep. Hoping for no more stupid mistakes.

    I honestly think the grade boundaries will be really stupidly high
    Grade boundaries shouldn't be high. For C1 and C2 grade boundaries hardly ever fluctuate and are always around 60/75 for the A which is normally 80% anyways! So dw too much about that =/
