I thought this was a fairly standard paper but it did have lots of parts to questions that could cause a lot of problems

There hasn't been a summer session boundary of less than 60 since 2007 and I really can not see it happening this time either; my best guess at boundaries is:

75 = 100ums
69 = 90ums
63 = 80ums
56 = 70ums
49 = 60ums
42 = 50ums
35 = 40ums

I will do my best to answer questions about the paper but please try to read the thread first so that I am not answering the same questions lots of times.

Here are some links to previous D1 threads, they are worth a read and you will see what the common errors were...
