    Yeah I agree was pretty straight forward. I struggled on vectors all year and the question was a straight forward 5 marker. I reckon I got the same range as you, I think I only managed to get 1 or 2 marks for the last een though. And i totally forgot how to do them base number questions lol.
    But yeah was better than my prelim anyway by far. Fingers crossed the pass mark doesn't go up.

    Yeah overall I agree it was a reasonably easy paper, and by looking at the solutions now I think I did OK. The rate of change question took me ages though. Last question was fairly easy actually, you just had to use De Moivre to bring the power down and multiply the pi/18's by 11 and the pi/36's by 4, then subract the angles to get pi/2, cos(pi/2) = 0 etc.
