Wasn't looking forward to this anyway but with the way AQA have been with maths exams this year...

Maybe they will take pity on us
2. Guys is there M3 thread?
3. (Original post by C0balt)
I haven't set one up, probably because I'm shockingly bad at M3 and haven't even learned the whole thing, bring on tomorrow Good luck!

5. Is there a FP1 thread somewhere as well ?
6. Would anyone be able to tell me their thinking behind June 15 Q5 part B please? Not sure how to go about it...

Which part of part b?

i) in particular... Is there a technique to changing numbers on a Argand diagram to cartesian form? Thanks

Of course there is? It's simply taking the real part as the x coordinate and the imaginary part as the y coordinate, which we basically do anyway.
Then it's easy to find the midpoint.

Ok thanks.. I've taught myself this module and effectively get everything apart from slipping up on Argand diagrams and I feel like these are considered 'easy' marks?

I've taught myself this one too; actually I find most of it very easy but I have to admit I find the Argand stuff the hardest, mainly because I'm terrible at interpreting loci etc. So I certainly have to think longer on some of those Qs. Would definitely not consider the trickier Argand ones the 'easy' marks myself (I'd consider everything else that XD) but maybe other people do.

Sounds like you're in the same boat as me haha!

Yep haha, although I can't help but want a really challenging paper this year .

Judging by this year's papers I think we're getting one!
15. Could someone please explain how to do 8(b)? My answers not quite right and the mark scheme isn't much help. Ta

16. Gotta get 41% in this one and M2 on average or I'm not gonna meet my offer. That means if I get 0% in this one I'll need 82% in M2, too much pressure...

All you have to do is use the factorisation from (a). Notice how you can choose the value of .

Then just solving two z^4 equations which is standard stuff.

Well it's not like you'll be getting 0% in this..

If I don't turn up it will be XD.
