    Here are some questions you can use to practise, they're from old specification but the questions should be relevant to section B, they may reuse the same question/format, one question was very similiar to January 2012.

    The format is a bit odd but just follow the paper with the mark scheme. Also

    woop, I'm in on this. Realllllllllllly prepared for it, considering I got the C4 and C3 dates mixed up and revised for C3 as if was on the 14th. Safe to say... C4 didn't go well

    This is a lot easier than I remembered it being at the beginning of the year. Nothing can be as bad as Jan 2012 though!
    Ooooh unlucky hopefully the grade boundaries will be low, Yh messed up in Jan hoping to get 75ums to secure my B grade

    According to the interwebz, there has been a supposed leak of this paper.

    Have been doing the Jan 10 paper and puzzled by Qu8. Its not that I can't do it, but the Mark Scheme specifies radians and says degrees is wrong. Where is the clue in the question that you should use radians?

    Thanks

    Hi everyone.

    I've just done the Jan 10 past paper and am puzzled by Qu8. The mark scheme says the question should be done in radians - but where in the question is the clue that you should use radians?

    Here is the paper. Scroll down for the mark scheme: http://www.mei.org.uk/files/papers/c310ja_4753.pdf

    Thanks
    You can only use differentiation and integration rules for trigonometry in radians. So they always are

    Aiming for at least 60/72 as each year except Jan 07 & Jan 09 (which was 61), I would get 80UMS, which is what I need.

    Retaking this for the A*, I got 85 UMS in the horrid Jan 2012 paper But C4 didn't go very well for me last week so I'll just do my best now seeing as the A* is very unlikely.
    The worst questions in C3 are definately the proof ones, and I can't sketch the inverse diagrams either :/
    By the way, how many significant figures do you give on questions not asking for the exact value?

    I wish everyone the best of luck though!
