Thanks Mr.M.

What did you think of the paper?

I'm looking at about 53/72 worst case scenario so potentially a mid A (85 UMS) depending on the boundaries

My query is 2ii). I had sintheta = 1/root 3 and in the exam, I forgot to do inverse sine before plugging the answer into the costheta part of r and I ended up with your answer, 0.770.
On the other thread, 0.790 seems to be the consensus. Would you mind double checking that part?

I've got the paper in front of me and I just tried doing it by differentiation and ended up with tantheta=1/root2 which gives a maximum of 0.769800... =0.770

I'm pleased if that's the case!

Hello Mr M, for Q8, I put the equation as half x^2+2x+10, would I lose any mark for it?

Thanks Mr M!

Crap for 2iii) I got and didn't bother to simplify it

You might get the marks for that still - not sure though?

IIRC the question said to remove all fractions?

??? That doesn't sound much like the answer!

Same here, was a tough one.

For the first one, I made a stupid mistake: I found sech(x) instead of sech(2x) then substituted :/ If I found this integral correctly, how many marks would I drop?

I meant the top part, and the bottom part I put was x+2

Oh I see. That's ok if a bit odd!

I can't tell any more. It seemed easy to me but my students said it was harder than some of the past papers and they would probably be in a better position to judge. Remember I have taught FP2 every year since it started so know it inside out.

It wasn't bad, just couldnt prove 7iii). went about it the wrong way, thats 67/72.... reckon thats 100 UMS?

More than likely.

I'm talking utter rubbish. It was me who got 0.790, everyone else had 0.770.
I think FP2 has tired me out...

More than likely.
