1. Hitler was in a better situation than I am after this exam.

Same... -4/5 I think? Not 100%
Yeah, definitely correct, -2x -4/5 was PI I think
3. Well that f***ed me in the ass, looks like I'm taking a gap year
4. Can anyone tell me what they did for P and Q? I didn't even know where to start
5. I haven't had internet and struggled with the paper, so I doubt I'll be able to do a markscheme, but I will upload my answers later if no one else does

What i did: start by finding the expansion of (1-X^2)^-1
the sub it in and multiply out, then compare coeffs, although they were really awkward fractions so it was easy to make a mistake. It was 4 marks but it took me a while and i lost a lot of precious time because of that.

Can you remember the question, I want to re-work it and see if the answer jogs my memory, can't remember what I got.

How many marks did u lose best case scenario?
6 = best case and easily 10+ = worst case. I reckon 10 marks is the most accurate though , hopefully that'll be an A!

For question 2 I got p=5/3 and q=8/5. It's probably wrong...
I think I got that cause my 2p=10/3
10. Can some put the marks for each question?

I think it was Sin2x - 2x(1-px^2)(1-x^2)^-1
12. If fp3 was hard imagine the fp2 paper .....

What's even the point in studying.. they'll change everything anyway. We'll fail and then go live in the woods as hippies. Let's just skip the middle man now.
14. I know they want to make the papers harder, but you have to ease it. Like sex, you don't just plough straight in.
15. 1. Ae^5x/2 - 2x - 4/5

2. 5/3, 8/5

3. Approximation: 2.081, 2.080

4. c=36, d=20, traslate 4 across

5. 0.5x^2 +3x +ln(x+1) +1

6. 1/36

7. I got my constants wrong but I believe this is correct: y= 2cos2x - 1/2(e^pi)sin2x + 1/2(e^4x) + xSin2x - 2xcos2x

8. (1/2)ln3 - 1/2

roast me
16. My student room site is laggy af. I have to do everything multiple times. Is this normal here?

I agree with this

I don't remember much because my brain is fried now but some of that looks roughly like my answers

Cause everyone's coming on to talk about Core 1 mate
