9. Re: OCR FSMQ Additional Maths June 2012 Solutions
By any chance you will have the question paper?
10. Re: OCR FSMQ Additional Maths June 2012 Solutions
i think compared to some of the past papers it was easy but i did find some of the latter questions very hard

On the question where you had the quadratic 0= V^2 +20v-1000, The solution could of been much easier and quicker by using 'completing the square' to gain your answer. Or does the ms specify, if you have been officially told, that you must of used the quadratic formula ?
12. Re: OCR FSMQ Additional Maths June 2012 Solutions
I think Grangran, for questions that ask you to prove an answer, you require a specific method. For questions to work out the answer which you are not informed of, any method is fine.

E.g if they inform you the answer to an integral is 2/3, you have to obviously integrate the function to receive the answer. On the other hand, if they ask you to work out x in an equation, you could use the quadratic formula/completing the square.

Well completing the square still gives the correct answer so the marks given should be the same on either method, I hope anyway

You'll be fine, I think they look at the answer first, and then see the working. If the answer's correct, full marks, if not, they observe the working out .
15. No that's incorrect - you have working marks as well so if you just wrote an answer down you can only get 20% of the marks
